    Was just coming in to say this. Guys, running with a vest is not necessary and can be detrimental to your joints. One pound of weight creates four pounds of pressure on your joints. So if you have a 50 pound weight vest, you're adding 200 pounds of pressure to your joints. I think the ratio doubles from 1:4 to 1:8 when you run. Please don't risk injury for something that will not help you. Low-impact stair stepping will be all you need.

    the academy is 20 weeks as someone stated previously. They mentioned in the paper that they will hire a classs every 5 months. That would make the academies back to back

    Turn your private messages on.

    When you got hired with the NYPD you were placed into the 20 year (tier 2) pension plan. When you transfer over to FDNY will you be put in the 20 year (tier 2 ) FDNY pension or will you be put into the new tier 6 (as of april 2012) with the 22.5 year retirement plan?

    The NYC website still says the academy is 18 weeks, but who knows when that was last updated. It also says daily 3 mile runs but I think bam said it was more like 5?

    Not sure if this has been posted, but a bunch of my buddies took these classes before their CPAT's and said it made a ton of difference. Pretty expensive, but well worth it if you're serious about the FD

    Hey, anyone who wants to call Mitch Maddox at the Post at number 212-930-8500 to let him know about Judge Garaufis' nephew it would probably help get him thrown off the case.

    This article has all the important info. Leave a voicemail if you have too.

    From truthbetold on the rant....

    Just got off the phone with Mitch Maddox of "The Post". He said that Judge Garaufis put it on record that his nephew was taking the test before he took the case, thus making it a moot point, in a way. I personally still think it is a major conflict of interest and he should of instead, recused himself.

    From what I've read that is correct. The problem is, when he took the case exam 6019 was NOT a part of the case. Garaufis made it a part of the case, there's your conflict of interest.

    I've heard anywhere from 3 to 8 miles daily. Though the 8 miles might be a culmination of everything during the course of a day. Someone else on here said it's about 4 miles a day.

    Easy there, fellas. Nobody with those numbers are worried about not being called. If anything, they expressed worry about not being called for the first OC class...

    Just to clarify, the city offers CPAT prep courses ? I work out on my own but I would feel more comfortable if I could also practice CPAT.

    Exactly, so his stance of "it doesn't matter because 6019 isn't part of this lawsuit" is totally invalid. The reporter should know that.

    Is the mile and a half in order to get into the academy, or is it done once you're already in?

    People are saying they hire extra to weed them out the first day with the mile and a half run, why wouldn't they just have it as a requirement to get in instead like PD does then?

    It's not a req w PD you literally have up until the day before graduation to run a 1.5 mile in 1420
    You get 5 chances throughout the academy

    The run is on the first day of the academy? 1.5 miles isn't far, how do these people pass the CPAT? Why was 6019's first class so small?

    Does any one know if the 2400 number includes the 5th man? Are they planning on bringing that back anytime soon.

    You're right... it used to be. I forgot they stopped it.

    Doesn't make sense to me why fd would hold a pass/fail on the first day to weed people out. That's a waste, it should be a requirement to even get in. Or, like PD, they should make it a requirement to graduate and drop the time.
