nobody knows anything as of now, maybe...hopefully in a month or so we will have some insight, all we do know for fact is that the fdny needs to hire. it is only logical to assume that the first hires would be from promo list just because they could put a class in quicker and start lowering ot . however logical thinking hasnt been the forefront of these past 7 years
If they do end up doing a class of all EMS promos, would they start calling us for physicals at the same time or wait til later on?
My cousin friend on SI took that class. Can you PM me the info for it please? just curious.
Some one on EMS promo told me he got regular mail starting the process for investigation etc.
Two of my partners got letters today to meet with investigator to start process. They both got specific dates. Hope I got something in the mail today.
What does this mean to us guys that took the OC exam ?
Be heading to Metrotech anyway to resign.
We can say with confidence that we are ATLEAST 8 weeks away from the CPAT, possibly and most likely more.
As per the standards set forth by the IAFF and the IAFC (the creators of the CPAT), two orientations and two timed practice sessions must be offered within 8 weeks prior to the CPAT test.
To my knowledge CPAT orientation and practice letters have not been sent out yet, so It's a reasonable assumption... Far better then, "Yeah, my uncle's dog wagged his tail 3 times this morning so the CPAT is in 3 weeks! I got a good feeling about this guys!"
When the CPAT letters go out, that'll be a good sign and the next step. If you're not on some type of fitness plan already your behind the curve. Step it up.
Straight from the Capt. of P.F.S.: There will be a January class of E.M.S. promotees. What does that mean? Well, it means that Metrotech has told the PFS Capt. at The Rock that there will be a January class. That's firm. However, firm in the FDNY only means that's it's true for the moment. Anything can change. It will be more set in stone when the dept. orders publish a request for instructors.
As for all of you from the open competitive list; don't kill yourselves with speculation right now. I doubt that any decisions will be made until after the fairness hearing and the Second Circuit rules. If the January class does indeed materialize, there won't be another class until late Spring/Summer at the earliest anyway.
They have sent out letters setting up candidate investigation interviews for all promo candidates. The letter very clearly states that it is not an indication of having passed the test, or what your list # might be, only that they are preparing to process the list and want to take care of this now, so that when they get the green light one of the more time consuming parts of processing (the background check) is done.
It doesn't mean all that much until they release the list and start sending out CPAT letters, but it's still a sweet sign.
I'm glad the EMS guys are getting the ball rolling, then promos can happen etc.
When do we hear the news about the appeal? who will be reading my letter? The appeals Court or garifius? Do list numbers get posted publicly?
Hey guys, I took the OC test 2000..... Got my letter today, list number 234. I also won the mega millions and met the easter bunny
Just kidding guys, everyone so tense maybe a joke or two will help. Good luck everyone. I think we should hear something by start of Oct. Hopefully a good portion of the June 13 class will be us!
So, this is an article about our favorite judge getting one of his cases overturned in a second circuit court of appeals. Hoping we get a similar result, Judge Garaufis shows a pretty consistent pattern of wildly overreaching his authority.
A gang-banger slapped with nearly 20 years in the slammer after a stop-and-frisk in Queens won a new trial yesterday because a cop who testified against him had given testimony that was “unworthy of belief” in a similar case.
In a 2-to-1 decision, a Manhattan federal appeals court said Lance White’s public defender was wrongly prevented from cross-examining an NYPD detective about the cop’s earlier, “discredited” testimony.
“Evidence that might lead a jury to conclude the officer was willing to lie in a similar case in order to secure a criminal conviction is . . . relevant . . .” wrote Judge Guido Calabresi.
White, a Bloods associate known as “King,” was convicted of being an armed career criminal after he was caught carrying a loaded, .380-caliber handgun on his way to sell it to an undercover cop as part of a joint FBI-NYPD sting in 2008.
But the appeals court said Brooklyn Judge Nicholas Garaufis “erred” when he ruled that the prosecution’s main witness, NYPD Detective Paul Herrmann, couldn’t be questioned about another gun-possession case. In that case, the evidence was tossed because a different judge said Herrmann gave an “inconsistent” account of the bust.
The dissenting judges accused their colleagues of conducting their “own evidentiary analysis.
