Metro Fire Recruitment & Testing Consortium

The Metro Fire Recruitment & Testing Consortium (MFTC) was created in 2014 for the purpose of creating efficiencies for member agencies and applicants during the initial screening process for the position of entry-level firefighter EMT, firefighter paramedic, and paramedic. Each year the MFTC administers a written and physical ability test and the results of which are used to establish a list of qualified applicants for further consideration by a Member Agency.  To be considered for volunteer, part-time employment, or full-time employment with a Member, candidates must register with the MFTC and successfully complete the written exam and if applicable, physical ability test.

300 East Rebuild Update

Update - View flyer here

The 300 East Reconstruction project between 3300 South and 3900 South is moving forward.  The design and construction documents are completed, and have been through a UDOT Plans, Specifications, and Estimate (PS&E) Review.  Having completed the PS&E Review means the project is ready to advertise.  However, there has been one unanticipated delay.  There are about 25 small right of way parcels that need to be acquired along the corridor to complete the project.  Right of way acquisition has taken longer than anticipated.  A few of the property owners live out of State, and it has been difficult to locate them to conduct right of way negotiations.  The project team is working to acquire right of way as quickly as possible.  The project is Federally funded, and Federal guidelines will not allow the project to advertise before all right of way has been secured.  Our intent is to have all utility work completed by late fall and do concrete and asphalt work in the spring.  If right of way acquisition cannot be completed in a timely manner the project may have to be delayed until next spring. 

If you have questions regarding the 300 East Improvements project, please contact their Public Involvement Manager, Carlye Sommers. Ms. Sommers is happy to answer any questions you may have. 801-859-3770 / 300 East@utah.gov
