Of this test. That test doesn't make us a ff ... You first need to have it inside if you to be one and pass that academy ...which I believe it's still the same. The rest is on us I prove to whoever how great of ff we can be ... Then again everyone is entitle to their own opinion .
To the guys that have already gotten the Lasik procedure done, where did you go to get it done. An optometrist recommended TLC in Garden City, just curious where you guys went .
None of us can do anything about what anyone might think about the people that will be hired off of 2500 and 2000.
However, we can go out and prove ourselves. If given the opportunity to go to the academy, we'll have a chance there to prove ourselves and build a reputation. Put in the work and do the right thing all of the time and this will give us a good start. Then, hopefully, it's on to the firehouse and we continue on building our reputations. Meaning: more hard work, taking pride in doing all of the required chores well, getting in the rig and learning it; learning the house-watch duties, doing them well and again, with pride; learning a little something on each run, regardless of it's nature; participating in company and department functions and the list goes on and on. This is going to take discipline; the ability to listen well; a desire to work hard and perform to the best of our abilities at all times, while tackling each task. I'm sure there's more to add to this, but I think that's the gist of it. We are each blank slates. We are in control of building our reputations, of how hard we work, how well we listen and how much we desire to be the best. Everyday will be filled with opportunities to get learn, to get better and do one's best.
As far as how the "process" goes, I think you'll do just fine if you simply follow the directions from DCAS and the FDNY, as they come. That's all I did for the process with 6019 and it worked just fine. The department will tell you exactly what to do and when you should do it, each step of the way. Do it the way the way they direct and it will generally be smooth sailing.
As far as how many list numbers they'll go through for each class or when they'll hire, you never can tell. Gaining this job has always been extremely competitive and always will be. Anything can happen. With that said, I think it's best to expect nothing, but to stay prepared, to do all that you can within your power, to be ready, so that when the opportunity arises, you'll be able to handle whatever is thrown your way and never have to wonder if you could have done more.
Recently had PRK eye surgery so if anyone has any questions just let me know.
So is it speculation or pretty clear that they went through all the EMS candidates who are eligible at this point. Does that mean they will put through a small class.
Hi guys, I'm new list #3XX here...I passed the NYPD medical a few years ago with the same vision I have now. I don't wear my glasses but I should if I want to see far away. Anyone know the requirements, is it 20/20? If so I'm in trouble
guys who went through the process on 6019: if you are using CC statements for proof of address do they want the whole statement or just the page that has your address? To be safe I printed the whole statement, but that's a total of 144 pages, vs just 12 if they only want the address page. Thanks.
Sup Guys, does anyone have a list of all the documents we need to have ready by the time we are called in ? I remember someone posting about this earlier in the thread but can't find it.

When I went to my college's website to request a transcript they ask "Please enter the name of the person to whom you want us to send your transcript. This name will appear on your transcript under the heading "issued to"."
I assume this means they will mail the transcript directly to someone if I choose. Does the FDNY accept a transcript I had mailed to myself? Should I have it addressed to FDNY? Thanks.
