    So from what we know, how many people passed the run for this class? Isn't the lucky number 320? I wonder how far off from that number that they are? Granted people can fail after admin day..

    “The problem is that strong, fit women who have passed the City’s physical tests are disproportionately dropping out of the Fire Academy"
    Passing CPAT doesn't mean your strong and fit! Lmaooo.

    Called CID to confirm they had my current address listed on file. Of course, they didn't. I also asked the girl if my packet had gone out yet. She said "No, but it will be very soon". Just wanted to share that with you guys.

    IWow that was bad. She wouldn't have even made much sense had he not questioned her. I wonder if any one with real power saw this and if it makes a difference.

    What's different about the academy over the past 2 years?

    Her basic argument was the commissioner agreed which really means he acknowledged her.

    It seems her main argument is "inconsistency" i.e, that the academy has been inconsistent. From what i've heard, passing FST wasnt originally a requirement to graduate and that it "suddenly" became a requirement in the more recent classes. According to a December 11th article in the NY Post:

    "After the hearing, Commissioner Nigro said passing the skills tests (FST) had only been required of the two most recent classes and not for any of the 15 years before".

    ....and their belief is that it only recently became a requirement in an attempt to eliminate females.

    Another argument is that the FST course does'nt exactly correlate with what INDIVIDUAL firefighters do in real life. In the field, specific task (ex: forcible entry, stretching/pulling hoselines, search & rescue, ceiling pull, Saw carry etc.,) are each assigned to specific groups and persons, whereas in FST only one member is required to perform ALL of those task.

    I personally don't know the reason behind why passing the FST suddenly became a requirement if it had'nt been before, and i somewhat disagree with the idea that FST does'nt correlate since depending on conditions, a member can certainly be called upon to perform a multitude of task they were'nt originally assigned, but this is basically their argument in a nutshell.

    What are the odds this test gets thrown out because of this women bull****? maybe I shouldn't defer to the winter class with this **** going on.

    Wouldn't they just eliminate this FST requirement before throwing this test out?

    I swear the government should just have a basic rule, no whites can get city or governmental jobs. Would make things a lot easier. Eventually it will come to this anyway.
    From what I read, and you guys can correct me if I'm wrong, it seems the commissioner has already publicly said FST will still be part of the academy but failing doesn't mean automatic failure of the academy. So there has already been changes. And from the interviews I saw, Crowley verbalized that she was capable and willing to file a grievance/suit, but to my knowledge none so far. I think we may be ok for now.

    On a different note though, you run that risk every time you defer. You never know when someone is gonna file and a hiring freeze start. Or the city realizes, all of a sudden, it's out of money. I would say if at all possible, I would avoid deferring at all costs.

    Did you recieve confirmation via mail? When I changed my address right after we started our cpat Trainjng, they sent me a letter from Dcas and Fdny confirming.

    I graduated last class we had 5 woman 1 got hurt the other 4 passed... That would be a percentage of 0 whom of which failed the academy... My question is where is she getting these numbers From. She also mentioned over 8000 woman were interested in the job...That's her dressed up version of saying 8000 took the test. That would mean 27000 men took the test. The job is not appealing to most woman. She mentions it's a great job that women deserve a chance of getting...yea they do have a chance at getting it no one is barred from the exam. And yes maybe the academy is "unnessecarily" difficult. That is to weed out those who wanna be firefighter and those who want to have a "good job"

    "The FST drills include advancing a heavy tire 6 to 8 feet, raising a ladder up a wall and breaching holes in a ceiling — while wearing an oxygen tank with a limited amount of air."

    Just seeing that gets my adrenaline running. I want to leave work and go to the gym so bad right now lol

    you really shouldn't defer man. unless you or someone you love is struggling with an illness and you need to heal/help them heal, you should take this job when it's offered to you. biggest regret of your life if something happens and hiring completely stops like it did 6 years ago.
