    Not my job to air the dirty laundry of RPD, just know that morale is much higher at the F.D. If it wasn't for the better pension, more would come over to the F.D., belee' 'dat!!!

    Talking

    One could have easily found that out on their own by simply checking out the city's website and "looking around" on their own!

    "One" probably could have done that, if I had wanted to do that, But I was asking RFDGloWorm that question.

    Hey brother, I applied a couple of weeks ago. I received a package in the mail with information about the test and what to expect. I also talked with HR and they did say the academy would be in April next year and possibly hiring 35 but you know how that goes.

    The FDNY is similar to the USMC, they are only looking for a few good members. Usually if you miss out on the first exam and not get hired, there usually isn't a sceond chance as the next time you may be able to sit for the exam you may be over the upper age limit for age at time of hire.
