    Although im african american, this deeply disturbed me and i actually thought about not even taking the test, just to avoid having a hand in discriminaton. However, I WANT TO BE A FIREFIGHTER. And that trumps all other issues for me. So i took the test and passed. Now i want to get on the job.

    I was there for that fiasco in Queens, that was crazy. I laugh now thinking how they turned me away from a prep session because I was white, and PH's might bump me from the July class. It's not a "that's funny" laugh though. The blacks/hispanics who were there, and I spoke to a few, seemed a little uncomfortable watching it all take place too. I took that as at least something positive that happened that night.

If anyone could post example is it like golf clothes like khakis and a collard shirt ? Or like a suite with no tie

    I'm going to go button down shirt, and dress pants. Khakis and a button down should be more than enough. Maybe a polo shirt if it was warmer out, but I'm going to go long sleeved button down, no tie. My office is business casual now and that's my usual work attire.

    Just got back from mine. Very informative. They'll cover all there is to know about the CPAT training sessions as well as the CPAT itself. You get to ask loads of questions (regarding the cpat only), they show you a video of the CPAT and they introduce you to the various organizations within the department of which you can sign up for and be a part; Vulcans included..

    They also discuss the mentorship program and answer any questions you may have regarding that as well. The whole thing is about 3 hours. The last thing youll do is sign up for whatever night you wish to attend the training session. You get to go home with a nice CPAT preparation booklet as well.

    The only hard part was actually finding the Academy grounds itself. Only becuz the email which contained the directions tells you how to get to Randalls Island only. Once on the island, youre on your own until you see that first sign which says FDNY Academy, after you have already driven down the road for 1/4 mile and turned into the wrong parking lot.

    Or that couldve just been me lol

    Hey I'm new to this thread but first off I want to say good luck to everyone who took the test. I scored a 102 which puts me in the late 700s. Considering I could be getting paper work pretty soon I was wondering if anyone could help me with one of my concerns. Does anyone know what kind of drug test the fdny administers ? I smoked pot a couple of times about 4 years ago and I know it wouldn't come up in a urine test, but I'm not so sure about a body hair test. If anyone has any information it would be appreciated. Thanks and good luck to everyone .

    This IS a good idea. For anyone who is coming from far away, car pooling will save you a lot of money. Once you're settled into Companies and Squads you'll be able to figure this all out. Plan on driving yourself for the first week though while this is figured out

    Many people make choices not realizing the ramifications it could have later on in life. Which is part of life.

    You'll get opportunity to set up carpools in the early days if you don't have one set up right away. But it's a good idea to do a test run early on a weekday to gauge what traffic will be like.

    From what I've heard, it's the complaints filed that bog a lot of the PD guys down.

    I remember someone saying that they were going to bring their medical clearance form to the CPAT informative session. Is this required or suggested? I don't really see there being an opportunity to hand that in. Anyone who went to a meeting already have any info on this? I'm going to the 8am Saturday

    Does anyone know if you have to disclose or does investigations already know if you have applied before to other city jobs such as PD?

    If so, does a DQ from PD affect your employment on FD or does a previous PD psychological influence the FDNY's decision on hiring you.

    I don't know that fd concerns itself with pd background or if they are in contact- if you are fingerprinted at pd for processing it comes up that you applied for other agencies

    Just your photo ID and the medical clearance form. If you dont have the medical clearance form yet then thats ok. You just have to bring the form with you the day you return for the actual training session. So really, just your ID.

    Scattered is not good enough, they would still be taking up spots.
