    Has anyone gone to a practice yet and if so how was it? I am going down this sat to the practice and take the PAT at the end hopefully. I have been training myself for the FDNY so I feel I should be in good shape for this.

    Apparently we aren't told our times on the test until letters go out in December.

    only a class of 30, so if your going to do this you better be in really good shape, and scrore as high as possible. Dont go into the test thinking it is easy, it is a very difficult and exhuasting test, if you want to make good time make sure you are in shape with a alot of cardio.

    2 classes of 30.. one scheduled for January and another in the begining of the summer. Director Blackwell said they have 62-65 vacancies in the department.

    Keep in mind there are no shows, people who just cant do the test, and you will get the same interview if you are #1 fastest or #600...

    Does anyone know about their interview process? How many on the panel / who are they type stuff?

    Director Blackwell did state that your times will be part of your interveiw, and everything else they will be looking for. So a better time would weigh better with the interveiw.

    I think I did well, but they do not give you any info, not even your time. I dont think we will find out how well we did until at earliest, first half of December. That is what we where told anyway.

    I just watched some video on the new County executive elect and it looks like he wants to make cuts. He didn't say where he's planning cuts but he said through attrition so that sounds like not hiring to replace retirees in the future. I don't think this will effect this hiring because he doesn't take office till december 9th, but it makes you think.

    i took the test on 8/28. PASS.
    Did not attend PAT practice. I was informned in my letter that i would be scheduled for the actual PAT. No response or PAT date yet. Should I be worried?

    I'm not too excited about not knowing either, im going to be anxious until december now. Took my test yesterday as well.. Not as difficult as a CPAT only becuase there isnt the cardio of the stairmaster, but still a challanging test

    Probably thought of this, but any chance it could have gone to your "spam" folder in your e-mail?

    You should have already received a date if you passed the written. Everyone I know received there invite to the PAT last month. If I was you I would call and find out before it is to late.

    Long story short: found out Wednesday my PAT was Friday at 8. Booked a flight, arrived at midnight in Baltimore, slept in the rent-a-car, and I'm feeling very confident about my performance today!

    That's something about us as firefighters, theres no such thing as "Can't be done". I know i will try everything in my power to get something done; whether it be at the scene or just around the station, but there's no such thing as quiting. Good Job XsheenX , I could use a guy like you at my house.
