From Kevin Haughton regarding the Federal Way job...

Our department web site will have the application and information on it by Friday the 14th.
Applications are open until Feb 1.
Any laid off IAFF applicants will not have to take the written test and will go directly to the oral board (along with 30 applicants from the Bates written test) Ultimately they will also have to pass the IAFF CPAT physical test.
Bottom line is that they are at least guaranteed an interview.
Have anyone call me too if they have questions
