My wife and kids stayed in nyc and I have home of record in Brooklyn and all my taxes while I was in active duty went to nyc.My 2 questions are will my list number be called prior to my ets date and will I be able to provide any paperwork when the time comes to show my chain of command that I have to participate in medical and physical ability evaluations from the fdny.I am in great physical shape and have great respect towards the fdny and cant wait to join .Thank you and have a great day.
    Your list may or may not be called at the end of the year to start the paperwork and investigation process. But you won't actually be academy ready until at least next summer.

    Maybe someone else can give a little more in depth answer.

    "Click-bait" was the best description I've heard for this article....which is really about nothing at all.

    Right now, the number of retirements for Service Incurred Disability is incredibly inflated, due mostly to 9-11. I work with guys who spent time at The Pile and they're coming down with all sorts of diseases. Lung Cancer, digestive cancers, sinus troubles and increased rates of severe respiratory infection. There are guys working through some of the pain, but failing medical exams none-the-less.

    How can you write an article about this right now when the numbers are so acutely influenced?

    Got the inside scoop from a retired vet on my current construction site, I had him snoop around -- looks like my dreams are crushed. They're estimating reaching aprox. 5500 on this list give or take. Me sitting at 79XX I am pretty screwed if the ratio stays as is. I had hopes of a possibility of sliding in the last class if they decided to do 3 classes a year but they are not.

    I need a favor, start bashing the job to everyone you know on the list below me--- thanks guys I will return the love if I ever get sworn in

    I thought the top 5000 has always been the number, they said it at the rock. Who knows though?

    Did you print out the manual ? I read it off my phone on PDF. Its like $100 for a print out, but I just may have to bite that bullet.
    I bought a copy of the manuals from my mentor I can resell it to you if you want or whoever needs it. $30 for both copies.

    Guys don't go crazy printing out 1000 pages of the manual. They're going to hand you the manual when you get in. If you wanna read a little bit. You can read a few of the earlier cycles online. It's not that big of a deal. I read very little before I started. Maybe 1 chapter and I'm doing just fine.

    I'm really hoping they add more classes. But wouldn't the max be an extra 2 classes?

    Yea. But keep in mind they're already doing "3 classes" a year but it's just not per calendar year. It's fiscal. Also they keep a month between classes. If they changed that to 2 weeks they could fit another class or 2

    Must have done 100+ push-ups today as part of my workout.

    How can I do 17-20 pull-ups no problem and my push-ups still feel like they suck.

    I know the fitness test is 30 push-ups but how many times in the academy do we do sets of 30 or more?

    I start to break form around 50-60

    I'm a few hundred numbers ahead of you and my friend OTJ said the person he talked to this week felt my number was real good. Just goes to show you it all depends on who you talk to.
