    Dude you should just go straight to fire... no point in wasting your time with EMS when you will definitely get called for fire. If you choose EMS, it will be another 4 years until you get on firefighter

    This is correct. There needs to be a reason for them to print business cards for you.

    You consider Chiefs, IMT members, etc. to simply be pencil pushers? I hope you're not on the job & if not, you have a lot to learn. Especially STFU when you don't know what you're talking about.

    Went to CPAT orientation yesterday. I'm sure some of you were there with me.

    Went well, few things I noticed:

    - Some ****** on the very first line before we even spoke to anyone kept texting and CALLING people with his phone volume blaring. Then asked about 4-5 different people when we were starting and how long we were gonna be. Then kept leaving the line to see what the FDNY people were doing since the line wasn't moving. AKA he didn't want to be there.

    - Another guy was saying how he can't believe he was missing work for this. He watched the CPAT on YouTube and it looks so easy.

    - A lot of people seemed more concerned about missing work than having a shot at FDNY.

    - A few people were visibly concerned when told they would eventually have to cut their hair.

    - Most people seemed very interested and were asking good questions. Then there was the token few who weren't listening and then asked questions that were very clearly already answered. The FDNY people did not seem understanding.

    - Mentorship lady said 1485 people scored 99 and only 45% have responded (I assume she meant to the mentorship application, not in general).

    - Also, some guy asked about having a fire marshal as a mentor because he wanted to go into fire investigation. Some guy watching from the back said something and then the Lt. up front asked if he wanted to be Chief of Dept. too. Hahaha.

    I'm a little p issed off because I got caught in a few of the JoinFDNY facebook photos. I hope FB doesn't auto-suggest my name to tag me in the pics. I already made everything as private as it lets me, so I should be OK.

    On a related note, someone asked about the social media policy and the Lt. brought up that FF who posed shirtless. Said he had to fight for his job, couldn't walk at graduation, and I think has 5yr probation instead of 18 months. AKA delete or don't post things on social media.

    Overall, there was ~360 people there over two sessions Sunday. Not sure about during the week, but there would have to be 225 per session if everyone showed up. I'm sure there are probably at least 100-200 people that didn't bother coming.

    I believe you need all original docs. They make copies at your intake, so I doubt they would want or accept a copy of a copy for their records. Get all ORIGINAL docs ready to go in anticipation of your intake.

    I started gathering everything months before and it worked out perfect. If you need a list of everything necessary for intake, let me know.

    @bkopie wow after hearing this, I'm a little disgusted by the "career" they chose. If no one feels committed enough to join the force then don't give it a shot. Obviously to those guys the job is just a job.

    This is just sad. Anybody who wants this job has to be dedicated to getting it. I'm scheduled God Willing for this summers June-July class. I am eating breathing and sleeping FDNY prep outside of work. Who's ready for round 2 Eval & FAP these next two weekends? I'm amped after the last whooping we got.

    Yeah but it's to give out to girls and stuff at bars to get laid. They also give you an appointment book since Fire fighters get so much tang.

    PT is still hard, and you're running a few miles after every PT session so you'll always be tired. But no soreness, by then you pretty much know every PT instructors workout style and you mentally prepare yourself once the instructor walk on stage. Also PT is not daily, you'll also have FST which is another beast within itself.
