    You finally figured it out!


    Serious answer: lunch time is scheduled for but is not guaranteed. You need to bring your own food. Lots of high calorie snacks are good. I was literally eating as much as I could in the academy and I still lost weight.

    Everyone I talked to, myself included lost an avg of 10lbs. Eating snacks and keeping yourself hydrated is key. I always ate snacks, and I still came home starving!

    Lol, like medic said there's a time scheduled for chow but they don't have to give it to you. Or you can spend chow time working out not by choice

    Remember you get there so early that you can bring something to eat. Also, the only time you bring dinner is when you are at CFRD, the other option is ordering out. They have a menu that's passed around from a deli that you can order from.

    Do they have any rules as far as what they want you to eat or what's allowed? Heard a funny story from an ff friend of mine that his fellow probie at the academy was eating pop tarts and a DI came over, took it out of his hand, threw it on the floor and stepped on it saying "don't eat this crap" lol.

    I love ribs. Thanks guys. I'll probably eat those most days. But I always bring my own BBQ sauce.

    What flavor pop tart was the probie eating?

    Jokes aside. Thanks for the answers. Hard to gauge with such a long day and so much pt/fst etc when and how much you can eat to recover. I like to snack so good to hear that other guys participate as well.

    Question for someone OTJ: srry if this question has been asked I looked it up numerous times and get different answers everytime,

    FF tours I know there's 25 groups and the tours are 9-6, 6-9, how many tours does a probie fresh off the rock work?? Also in reguard to mutuals, how exactly does mutuals work?? And is the 24 hour shift followed by 3 days off fact or fiction. What is an average shift schedule for a FF in a seven day(week) period??

    Also according 2 the fdny website ff only get 4 weeks vacations?? Why is that less than other city agencies, i.e, cops, corrections, sanitation where they all get 5 weeks (cops get 27 days @ top pay)

    You get on, you will be doing straight tours for a few months. 2 day shifts, 1 day off, 2 night tours, 3 days off. As far as mutuals, you will get a mutual partner that you would schedule your 24 hours shifts with. When you get on, you will figure out how that works.

    Yeah, but those tours aren't short, day tours are 9 hours and night tours are 15 hours. As a Probie you have to do everything, no time to relax.

    Ok, I'm gonna ask the question everybody wants to know the answer to lol. Are you allowed/expected sleep during the night tour or are you supposed to be up for 15 hours straight (for probies and vets)

    After midnight, you can get some sleep. That's if the runs don't start pouring in. LOL

    Don't think you actually get all those days off. Soon as you're allowed to work OT you will be (at least for the next few classes). It's going through the roof in my battalion.
