    In terms of the background check, can one open container summons DQ you? Thanks in advance for any help and information.

    Can someone please tell me what are the vision requirements? I have a low prescription and want to know if I should be concerned. I passed the NYPD medical a few years ago and my vision is the same. Thanks in advance

    I wonder what's going to DQ people more. The stair master or the run?

    The info on HR is greatly appreciated - thanks everyone. To clarify, what is the stair master exercise? Is it 75 lb vest for 15 minutes? If so, what is the climb rate of the machine set to? And can you hold the rails?

    Also, for those who have gone through it, at what point in the medical does one go through the stair master exercise? Wondering if my heart rate will already be elevated by that point…

    Lastly, I've run a bunch of marathons and I'm in pretty decent shape but I've never trained to lower HR. If any real runners or personal trainers out there can give some advice on a training method for lowering HR, it would be appreciated…

    Thanks guys.

    its 50 lbs for 5 min 12 seconds i think. You can't touch the handrails. You will fail if you touch them and it everyone does different stations so you can be at the stairmaster at any point of the medical except the last step which is to see the doc when everything else is completeted.

    Biggest part of the step mill for the medical is controlling your breathing. If you can control your breathing your golden. I was literally holding my breath in increments for the final two min. You will literally see your HR drop when you control your breathing. During the test you won't be able to see your HR, the FF conducting the exam sees your HR on a watch he's holding.

    Thanks Gimmiefire. Can you confirm the weight of the vest, the time on the stair master, and the rate of the ascent?

    50#, that I'm sure of. As for the rate, I believe its 60 steps per min, pretty sure about that but not 100% positive.

    Yea, I also wanted to know about this. I broke my ankle back in 2009 and the docs put in two screws and a plate..

    Hey guys, I just joined the forums last night. I have been reading through this entire thread for a while now. I have 1 question that I am worried about. I am 20 years old and I lived in Queens my whole life so I applied for Residency. I was checking the requirements last night and I realized that it said I needed a HS diploma which I have AND any 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.

    I do have a Debit card but I received it around March 2012..This wouldn't qualify to them since it says prior 2011. Can somebody please let me know if I can show them something else proving that I live in Queens.

    Thanks a lot!

    hmm... what about if you fail the heart rate on the stepmill and they make you come back and do it again in 30 days. Don't they make you walk for a longer time and if you do you pass? I passed for 6019 but a few of my buddies walked more time and passed or something. But yeah, you don't see your heart rate the instructor conducting the test does and it come on the watch monitor and on the computer also in the room which someone is monitoring. Eye requirements: I had to get lasik back then as well. the eye exam was one where you look in a thing and have to express which way a open sided letter was facing. If you couldn't make it out, which i couldn't, you had 30 days to fix it and come back and pass. the color blind part was where you saw a color with a letter or number in it of a different color. Hope this helps anyone concerned. also anyone who thinks this is too much info let me know so i can edit stuff out...
