I am currently on the list for the Boston Fire Dept. I scored a 9 band...which is the highest range of scores. I am 209 on the list. No one can tell me how many firefighters Boston hires a year, so I have no idea if I have a shot at BFD or not. Can anyone tell me if I have a shot or if they know Boston is hiring a lot??? I'm trying to get into an EMT program because I hear it helps. Any advice is appreciated!!
