    With the volunteer fire department im on when we did a smokehouse evolution it is pretty much when they load a house or building up with a **** load of smoke to where you literally cant see your hand in front of you. You go in with a couple of guys and you have to do a search. We did about 4 evolutions each time having to try and find a dummy that they hide. It does get a little nerve wrecking in there because even though your with 3 or 4 guys it feels as if you are alone because you cant see anything and you can barley hear your members. It is a good exercise though because it does teach you how to use your senses in a fire.

    We're not the Vollies.....this isn't the evolution that is being discussed.

    Can someone quickly lay out the correct order of the applicant processing? I know the interview is first, but what's next? And at what point in the process is the 2 mile run? And is the 2 mile run on track or is it point A-B? Please tell me its not a track. I hate running in circles. Feels like you're dying while accomplishing nothing. Much easier on my pysch if I have an actual destination to run towards.

    In the army,sometimes we ran 2 miles in 8 laps and sometimes we did the two miles from one destination to the next . It was ALWAYS (mentaly) a much easier and faster run when we ran from one place to another. Laps kill motivation. And sometimes I lose count Lol.

    (this was posted by MM back on page 284)

    August 30 - Received Background Investigation packet, around this time the department also sent out invite for orientation/sign up for the CPAT prep class
    September 17ish - orientation sessions at The Rock for CPAT prep class
    September 25 - CPAT prep class starts
    October 4 - List #s leaked
    October 11 & 16 - CPAT Orientation dates at DCAS testing center
    October 17 - Background Investigation meeting
    Late October - Actually got my score/List # in the mail
    November 15 - Medical
    December 1 - CPAT practice #1
    December 10 - CPAT practice #2
    December 13 - CPAT final attempt

    Things felt pretty rushed all the way through, so I imagine they'd like to get started sooner and have a bit more time to work with OC people. So hopefully for your sake and theirs, they'll get going with it in January/February as soon as this class goes in.

    Yeah, it's an out and back route, so it's better than circles.

    Just remember everyone, there is no interview. You have a processing day with the investigators, buts its really not an interview so don't sweat it.

    They do an EKG and then watch you with a heart monitor on a step mill. You can't exceed 90% of your max heart rate.

    What happens if you fail? Can you take it again or is it all over? Or do they consider other factors?

    When going thru this for 6019 if you failed you could retake it in 30 days. If the failed the second attempt then you were ineligible to be hired. I don't know what you mean by other factors?
    When I did it, it was pretty much could you or couldn't you do it.

    What they put you through on smoke house day will teach you a lot. You'll learn what it is when it's your turn.

    1. Not to contradict FDsouthbxNY but when I did my 2 runs last month it was on Sunken Meadow Loop, a fairly new looking park area adjacent to the academy. We did like 1.5x around the loop. The out and back course described previously in this and the 6019 thread is a regular route for PT though.

    2. If you fail the HR test you have to come back and redo it within 30 days. On the retry one of the department doctors watches as you do it. If at 5m12s you are again too high on the HR they will have you stay on the stairmaster till 8m have passed, and they decide based on how well you handle the exertion. Many failed the first time, but the vast majority passed the second.

    3. That video doesn't say anything expect where the smokehouse is. If we're going to post random stuff and call it an answer then let me tell you about the smokehouse: http://youtu.be/ravAOrNTfKQ?

    Don't worry about contradicting. Your information (unfortunately for you ) is more recent than mine. My run was out and back around the driving range. That they would change it doesn't surprise me.

    Default Cpat

    Hey guys, for anyone who is worried about the CPAT, Connecticut offers a CPAT every spring and fall. The cost is $150 and if you are worried about the CPAT it offers you the chance to give it a try and figure out the best technique for you. Also if you are interested in testing in CT you need to have a CPAT card just to take most tests. FYI you must sign up by March 7th for the Spring session. http://www.ct.gov/cfpc/cwp/view.asp?...6722&cfpcNav=|

    So, I've been in the Dominican Republic, visiting my girlfriend's family since early yesterday. Before I left, like a lot of you, I received the email about the cpat orientation. That was some decent news.

    Since I've been here, I have eaten all fresh food. Fresh pork. Fresh chicken. Fresh eggs. Seriously, we went into the country side and got it from my girlfriend's family. The meals have been unbelievable. They make everything from scratch. And the fruit, my gosh.

    I also have been training, in the mornings. The weather in in the low 80's and it hasn't too humid. Her family took me to a local college to run. They have a dirt track and pull bars, dips bars and parallel bars. I drink coconut water right from the coconut.To top it off, her mother is paying a masseuse to come to the house to give me a massage each day after I train. I also have swam in a beautiful mountain creek. And ridden horseback.

    Now, I'm figuring I have a packet (2xx) waiting at home. I don't return for a few days yet. I see someone said you have to confirm the 'interview' date. Is there a deadline for that call?

    They called down to all of score 103. IMO they will start calling more candidates after the Late July class goes in because they still have the rest of EMS and the priority hires to put in the academy along with the OC in the summer class.

    List # 19xx

    List # 19xx

    They called down to list #733 if they sent out packets down to a score of 103
