Good luck to all, especially those 6019ers that aced the last exam and were set to go in , and now got list numbers on the new exam that will not realistically allow them to get a shot at the academy this time around and who have potentially aged out of future exams, it makes me sick to my stomach, there was lots of good guys that had there head and heart into it that probably would have made great firefighters .
    If you went to the old prep classes at the "Rock", I was there too. I know all of us were a good group of guys and the comradery showed then. I did pretty well on exam#2000 with a list number in the 3'000's. I hope to get called but will not let up until us exam#6019'ers get something.

It doesn't give you an accurate time and it's so much easier than outdoors. Your legs dont have to do the same amount of work indoors and you arent dealing with the hot/cold air in your lungs and the elements. I say skip the treadmill always.
    Yes I been stop the treadmill after a few people told me that indoors is not as good as outdoors runs,

    Default Treadmill vs Outdoors

    I actually find it a lot easier to run outdoors, I find my self more into the scenery rather than then run, which helps me keep a faster pace, and It usually takes a lot longer for fatigue to kick in. I feel that taking the same strides I’ll take on a treadmill, let’s say at an 8min mile pace, is actually a lot faster running outdoors. Does anyone else feel this way??

    I agree 100%. Went on a run through W-Burg with my buddy last week, about 3.5 miles. Outside with a partner goes so quick. Had I been on a treadmill I'd have been dying, and probably at a much slower pace.

    By the way, does anyone know how much the CPAT sledgehammer weighs. I wanna try to get the tire/hammer contraption in my yard so I can swing away at it after a tough workout. Can't hurt. Any good ideas from you guys?

    Hello fellow future FF. I want to start by wishing everyone good luck on the FDNY hiring process. I have several questions regarding this process which may have already been answered in the past. Maybe some of you guys can answer some of them. I am currently serving in the Military (Army) and my contract will be over in June 2013. I scored pretty good on the FF test and I am now afraid that they might call me in before my contract in the Military is over. What would happen if they call me for physical exam, CPAT or Academy entry dates if I'm still in the military? Would they just throw me on the end of the list and keep on hiring the following numbers? or would they just give me an Academy date after I get done with my contract?.

    My other concern is about the Residency credit documents. I was only able to find some bank account statements from 2010-2011. I have W-2 from 2007-2009. I also have a driver's license from NY showing my address in NYC. I was informed by one of my fellow team mates that also took the test that if I show them some documentation stating that I entered the Military from NYC, that could also serve as proof for the residency credit as well. Any takes on this matter?

    Again, I apologyze if these questions have been answered in the past and really appreciate your guy's help. Thanks.

    When you come off AD and you have been called to start the hiring process you just have to contact DCAS and you would then start processing for the next class. That's how it has been in the past so i'm sure that it will be the same now. Not sure about the residency though. I'm sure if you werent living in NY and have proof prior to enlistment at MEPS then you should be good to go.

    The length is Long enough that youll swear there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Days? Yes. Complete with both sunrise and sunset. You will only see the outside world by moonlight. Hours dont matter, because you move/eat/pee only when the DI's tell you to. The face of your watch- which you wont be wearing anyway- will have their faces where the numbers used to be. And of course you get paid. In peanuts.

    Then somehow once its done, and you reflect upon your experience there... you will do so quite fondly.

    if the appeal goes in our favor, does that mean that the 293 priority hires are off the table? or would they still go in?

    I think I remember you! Were you in the CPAT prep course at the "Rock". Remember when the Lieutenant said: "And guys don't worry about getting pu$$Y, the ladies will be throwing themselves at you!" I remember saying to myself, well I already have two children & pu$$y isn't the issue for me. I thought we were all in there man. If only I knew all the BS that was ahead of us. If the City's appeal does not prove to do so well, for us. We have to come together and sue the $h** out of the necessary parties(no names will be written) for denying us our due diligence. It is ridiculous how we are included in the lawsuit and aren't the benefactors of any of the rulings. We should be going in right after the 300 promos.

    I am still fit and will prove it, those little boys who are in they're early 20's have another thing coming if they think us 6019'ers will be messing around this time. Been there Done that!! I will not waiver, committed to the cause, we will fight the good fight and leave it all out on the table.

    I think you mean "due process" my man. Due diligence is what the background investigators do on us candidates!
