    Thanks for clearing this up for me, and yes what he did was very Honorable, most people would not have done this. This truely speaks of his character.

    So don't worry about this. You've got plenty of other things with the process to worry about that are actually legit.

    Yes you was right on that one, he is def. an honorable man with great character. I'm not in the process for FDNY but I felt like that was unfair to all the people on here that was.

    Just read this in the Post: "Garufis rejected a broader request from the city to open the doors for 24 hours to everyone who wants to apply to the FDNY, saying that without accompanying recruitment efforts it might actually sabotage the goal of expanding minority ranks in a fire department that's overwhelmingly white."

    Am I missing something, or has this Judge lost the ability to think rationally? Why does Everything have to become racial? This makes absolutely no sense at all. I'm sure 24 hours really would have a big impact on the all the millions spent on recruiting over the years.

    Just one more thing this guy has ruined.

    Although I cannot be entirely sure, from what I understand, at this point in time, the test we will be taking is going to be different from the Alexandria and NJ exams. Those exams sound much like what the fire team sample exam offers. This may change, of course. Keep in mind that the information that is swirling around out there is based on a practice exam that was administered to current members. It's entirely possible that the content may change. One of the stated goals in developing this new exam is to create a test that meets "job necessity." In other words, a test that will best measure our ability to become firefighters.

    On the topic of Medal of Honor recipient Sgt. Meyer, I can only hope that he will someday have his chance at this job. The man's actions speak for themselves.

    It's important to put all you can muster into the things you can control. Nobody can stop you from studying, from running, from staying out of trouble, from getting a good education, from building a good reputation... from being ready and prepared. They can't take that from you. They can't take your desire. Ignore what you can't control. It's a waste time and emotion.

    Haha, how many times do you think Garufis has used the phrase "overwhelmingly white" in the past decade?

    And yeah, I'm thinking at least 20,000 of the people taking this test dont show up or get below a 70 (fail). The Idea of getting proof of unemployment and spending 5 hours of your day visiting DCAS to avoid $30 for a test fee seems like an insane waste of time to me. Two months to get 30 bucks together and you show up on the last possible day to claim unemployment? Yeah, alot of these people arent in this for the long haul.

    Stay, get the residency points and then move to Long Beach. Also join their VFD as they are one of only two LI departments that are paid (one Engine company is) so you never know who you'll meet or if it opens a backdoor for you.

    Has anybody heard anything else about the prep classes for the written that the city will be giving? I haven't been able to find anything about it.

    I don't think they would be having those prep classes this time around. I think most of it would be up to the individual, and the computer based tutorial that would be released in November. Don't take my word for it, but there is no mention of it at all anywhere on their website or the NOE.

    I'm actually more interested to know how they will be scoring the written with the physical. The way they are setting this whole thing up is really shady man. For 6019 we knew how your list # was being established and what the physical exam would be. All I know at this point is that I'll be sitting in front of a computer at some point between Jan and Feb.

    Haven't heard anything on the topic of the physical agility.
    IMO I don't see them straying away from the relatively lawsuit free CPAT.

    More proof of this just being a numbers game. Cassano ( FDNY commissioner) knew he had to achieve specific quotas. I'd be interested to see how much different things Would be without the vulcan society lawsuit.

    Woman sued the CFD stating that their physical (not CPAT) objectified women.

    Article from Huffington Post

    Again, the CPAT basically saves most FDs from lawsuits which is the reason why it was conceived. Even Gardifus knows this which is why he won't throw it out.

    Default Cpat

    ok i found this info.....


    Almost every Fire Dept in the country uses a physical abilities test known as the Candidate Physical Abilities Test (CPAT). The CPAT is approved and sanctioned by the IAFF (union), IAFC (Fire Chiefs org) and US Dept of Justice, and EEOC. It's a lawsuit proof test. However, the pass rates among females who take it is very low.

    Of course, the City of Chicago refuses to use this CPAT, and instead brought in yet another connected consultant to develope their own version which would ensure a high pass rate for females.

    Default FDNY plans to use CPAT

    My sources tell me that the FDNY plans on using CPAT (safest bet lawsuit wise). I've established my FDNY / CPAT Prep school to take the candidate from Stepmill to Academy Graduation.
