    What kind of helmet is issued? (1010/1044/Ben 1or2)
    Are recruits allowed to add pieces to their gear during probation and/or allowed to change their boots or helmets during probation?
    Is there a website the FDNY has which shows what gear is approved to wear by the dept. and what isn't?
    I'll make this short and sweet. Wear what they give you... No more no less. It's morning pride but who cares. Get thru one step at a time... We just got our scores!!

    I have Crohns Disease as well. Just went through the Medical for FDNY EMS. You will just need a Letter from your Gastro doctor stating the following: 1. What medication you are currently on 2. That you are currently stable and in remission 3. And that your doctor feels you are fit for duty with the FDNY.

    Until you are called, I would definitely keep up on any check-ups with your personal doctor.

    I was diagnosed in 2001 and have not had a flare up since 2006. And I've never had surgery from Crohns. Dont know if that changes anything.

    Hope this helps.

    Does anyone know the vision requirements? Like 20/40, 20/80, etc. because I wear glasses and wonder if i should be looking into lasik or not. Also a friend of mine went to college upstate at Siena, but he was at college off and on during 2010-2011, he applied for residency credit but how does residency credit work for people that went away to college during those years?

    im pretty sure its 20/40

    NEW YORK CITY RESIDENCY CREDIT: Points equivalent to five percent of the maximum possible final exam score will be added to the final exam score of those candidates who qualify for the New York City Residency Credit. To be eligible for the residency credit, a candidate must achieve a passing score on the examination, and must produce proof, as listed below, of the candidate’s continuous residency in New York City from July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011. Candidates interested in seeking the residency credit must apply by following the instructions which will be provided on the date of the computer-based test. Merely supplying a New York City address on the application form for this examination does not serve as a request for the residency credit. Requests for residency credit must be received by DCAS before the eligible list is established.
    Eligibilityfortheresidencycreditwillbeinvestigated andverifiedbytheFireDepartmentofNewYork. Inability to produce the required verification of residency documents for the continuous period of residency will result in the forfeiture of the New York City Residency Credit and an adjustment in the final score. Under no circumstances shall a Post Office (P.O. Box) address be accepted as proof of residency. As in the case of any intentional misrepresentation of a material fact on an employment application, candidates who claim New York City Residency Credit and who are determined to have intentionally misrepresented facts concerning New York City residency shall be terminated if they have already been appointed and/or disqualified and their names shall be removed from the eligible list, and they may be subject to criminal sanctions.
    Candidates applying for New York City Residency Credit must provide any three of the following:
    • Mortgage in the candidate’s name valid during the 12-month period between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011
    • Cable bills for the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011
    • Telephone bills for the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011
    • Gas, electric or water utility bills for the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011
    • Checking or savings account statements for the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011
    • Credit card statements for the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011 and
    • W-2 form(s) from the candidate’s employer for the 2010 and 2011 tax years.
    Candidates aged 21 or younger have the option of submitting three of the proofs listed above or, as an alternative, candidates who are 21 years of age or younger at the time of their application to take the exam may provide:
    (a) A diploma from a New York City Public High School; or
    (b) A transcript from a private high school in New York City showing a New York City address for the candidate; or
    (c) A GED certificate issued from a New York City institution during the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011 to a
    candidate who presents evidence that his last school enrollment was in a New York City Public High School;
    -AND-
    one additional proof of residency, from the list above.
    The Fire Department of New York reserves the right to accept other documents in lieu of the above, under special circumstances which validate various living arrangements as determined by the Department and approved by the Department of Citywide Administrative Services.

    If you wear glasses/contacts, it's probably a good idea to go ahead and get LASIK or PRK. Why wait til they tell you to get it, try and be one step ahead of the game.

    Ran sprints today just to see where I'm at. Did 20 minutes worth. 30 second full blast with a 45 second slow jog/walk break. GODDAMN did it kick my ***. I recommend some of you go out and try it. You'll be humbled. Don't let my name fool you. I just randomly picked it back during the old list...

    i just don't see how this could be fair to those under 21. I do not have any of the upper proofs because I was still in HS when I first applied. I never had a job before so I never needed a bank account. Since I didn't have a job I didn't have any money to even have cable or any of the other things. I just hope i can have my parents get something notarized stating that I have always lived in NYC.

    i just realized that the residency credit part in the exam notice says that they have the right to accept other documents. Hopefully this is good in my part.

    You should call DCAS and see if a notarized letter stating you lived there at the time would count.

    Very rarely (at least in the city) are people charged with dwai. Even if you're under the .08 limit, there's a more general dwi charge for driving while under the influence that we charge. It usually gets knocked down or plead out to dwai.

    Not sure about the 5 year rule, but i'd assume it's similar.
    I was charged of a DWI but plead guilty to the lesser charge DWAI. If NYPD can hire you after 5 years of not gettig another alcohol related incident then I assume FDNY may do the same or not require you to wait longer than 5 years. Does anyone know if a DWAI or DWI is an automatic DQ?

    Calm down if u read the actual notice of exam they understand that you will not have any bills in your name and they will take it as a case to case when you get called As long as u have your hs diploma you will be fine
