He Passed, He Passed!!!

31 Jul

For those of you who don’t know, Rob has been going to school to become a Fire Fighter. Just yesterday he had an interview with LA City Fire Department. He said that this was one of the hardest interviews he has ever had. The preparation alone coming to this point was INSANE! He had his interview at 1:30 and i got a call at almost 2:30, the ecstatic voice on the other end was my husband yelling with excitement that he passed his interview!!!! YAAAHHHOOOOO!!!!! This was just the best news ever!

Although this doesn’t automatically mean that he is hired, it is a HUGE step in the process. Up next is the background interview coming up in mid August, after he passes that he will be put on a “list” with all the other people who have made it that far. Then it’s just a waiting game to see which station picks him up. This could be anywhere from 6 months to a year. LA City Fire has over 100 stations so lets hope that makes his chances even better!

While all of this is happening he will still be taking his required classes and going through regular Academy. Keep him in your prayers to stay strong and positive. Thanks!
