    I don't want to Sound grimey neither but I think the same ..
    Specially those that don't want the job. Once I'm in the academy it's a different story ! Im as loyal I can be and the brotherhood would begin !!!

    Great post.

    There are unfortunately a few IGM guys posting here, talking about hoping other people fail....but it seems like most people are with you on this, which is a good thing. It's one of those things, either you get it, or you don't.

    Agreed, alot of recruits don't know what their weakness is cause they never actually done the job. i've seen people literally freakout and panic when going in a small dark space with gear on and have to go to a dept. pysch. Just because someone has a weakness exposed in the academy doesn't mean they can't recover and become a great FF. The academy is there for training you on how to manage in those situations.

    If you come in in shape but over the limit, they will pass you. The doctor makes the final call. But if you come in looking like a slob then they will tell you to lose the weight.

    The lady on facebook said they don't have a heigh to weight requirement. If the they do follow it, those weights are more than reasonable, assuming we are talking about the 20%.

    Trust me, they follow it. It's not law.... More of a guideline. They aren't going to fail a guy who is ripped but over the limit. But, they will break out the chart if you are just heavy with no muscle tone.

    I completely agree with you... Obviously it's a competition right now.. But you won't be taking my cpat, psych or medical for me...it's on me to pass those and get mg paperwork in line.. But that doesn't mean that if you know someone you can't offer some positive aids like hey put the joint down.. Try this workout etc.. I know that there's alot of positive vibes here but I just don't want anyone to get the attitude like I hope he fails..that's all


    On a more serious note.. Hope all you NYC boys ar hunkered down.. Stay safe.

    Competition is about besting the guy next to you, not hoping he fails. I want to get on the job because I was the best candidate, not the result of process by elimination.

    I am 5' 6 and 143LBS. I am into bodybuilding so I just came off my first cut. Do I need to get to at least the Upper Limit to be considered or hit the 20% mark to play it safe. I am ripped, six pack and all and have muscle to show but I have shed a lot of fat off my body - that is why I am only 143 now. I would appreciate your reply. Thank you

    Competition is when you get to the academy and towards the end of the academy the instructors make everyone show their max reps for pull ups, sit ups, push-ups and fastest 1.5mile time. Who ever wins is awarded the fitness award and you get to chose what firehouse you want to go to. Oh man I can't wait for this!

    EDIT : You know how good it must feel to say " I was the fittest in my class " !!! . Must be one o the greatest achievements you can get in my opinion. It would start your career with a BANG!
