I think prk is a much better choice for eye correction. Something about a flap in the eye popping open after some time when it's done with LASIK. PRK is not cheap but no worries about a flap popping open. Anyone else knows about this procedure??
The join FDNY lady said there is no heigh weight requirment
Hey Join FDNY
One guy asked me an intriguing question that I have not found on my serches, maybe you can help. Is there any place on the interwebs where one might find the height/weight chart of the FDNY? I understand other Fire/Police Departments have strict rules on this, but is this the case for you?
Thanks as always!
Join FDNY Hi JD, We do not have strict requirements on this. Our only such requirement is to ensure that everyone who we hire is healthy enough to do the job.

Not sure if thats true, but I wonder what the truth is
that seems pretty high to be able to run far.
[QUOTE=BrooklynBorn;1345202]that seems pretty high to be
Idk I tell you when I get there !!!!lol
Totally unreasonable. You have many weeks of long hard days ahead where being late is NEVER an option. It's 2 miles to the rock from the subway and at the hours you'll be traveling there could be 20 minutes between trains.
Work out a car pool. You'll get the chance.
A buddy of mine from the Marines told me that when he went through the Rock in 2007 the city reimbursed him after the academy for the tolls on the Triborough. Is there truth to this? That could be a huge help with the finances.
Haha yeah outside it is
There is a public lot outside the gate. That's where you'll park. DO NOT try to pull in the gate. It's a perfectly safe place to park. As for the toll, it's only one way. The city will reimburse you for the cost, just make sure you ask for a receipt and same them all. That does mean no ezpass kids!
To address the being late question...DON'T BE. Would you like to sit in a comfy chair on a platform in front of your 300 classmates while they stay in the "plank position" on asphalt for 10 minutes...? They'll thank you for making their elbows bleed....
The point is, nothing at The Rock works without the whole team. You need to be able to count on each other. Don't be late, don't forget to iron your uniform every night, don't forget to shave your face everyday or your head a couple times a week. You fail, everyone pays.
Lol yeah I saw all that BS on join FDNY Facebook too. Fellas lets be honest they may or may reach past 6000 people I myself would be affected by this BUT it's a sought after job that's very competitive now. It sux real bad for those of use that really really really want it. Hopefully the odds are in our favor but if not have a back up. Ps or you could send cakes an ice cream to the top scores lmfao. No but seriously head up be positive as much as possible while living in reality. Good luck all I only pray one dy we all will achieve success. GDP
i dont think they will have a problem reaching 8500 like the city predicted. Between medicals, CPAT, people losing points they didn't earn, and people not wanting the job. im hoping they will reach me at 69** but I'm not getting my hopes up but i am working out everyday because thats the only thing i can control now and no one know for sure who will get called only time will tell.
Thats what Im praying for everything you posted but I am being realistic because when the day comes or not I dont want to be disappointed you know.
Im not going to say anything that will discourage you. Workout get all you info together start saving as much money as possible, pay all your bills off and the most important wait be patient hope for the best. Im in the low 8000 my Soc screwed me but Im still pushing forward there are pleanty of Fire Departments out there and remember if you want it bad enough and FDNY doesnt call theres always military FF Airforce Army they got FF MOS too. its not what you really want but close enough you know.
all of the rumors my old man is hearing says i should get in but thats what they are just rumors and no one really knows what is going to happen
