    Yes, that might be a good idea. I'm certainly not going to do it though, doesn't affect me at all. Just a curious party.

    I am almost certain that they do not "establish" the list until they are ready to hire from it. Even the announcement from The Chief only said the list was "made public":

    The Department of Citywide Administrative Services made public a 40,864-name list for Firefighter on Oct. 3, 2012. The list is based on Exam 2000, which was held from March 17 to April 20, 2012.
    Readers should note that this roster has not yet been officially established for use and that once established, the eligible list changes over its four-year life as candidates are added, removed, reinstated, or rescored.

    It should be noted that never has there been any mention of what the remaining 2 hires race would be, here you assume 2 whites.

    I find it extremely highly unlikely, that the city would skip over hispanic or black candidates on 2000 to solely hire whites due to the court mandate. Just looking at the top 10 names on 2000, half of them are most likely Hispanic. Could you imagine the $hitstorm from that.

    One would have to assume the city would use rank order on 2000, (and fill in with the priority hires as needed) not race order.

    I have to agree with this assumption.


    I'm done with EMS, and it feels really weird. I have a great sense of loss after all the memories accumulated over the last year and a half in the same spot with the same people.

    Yeah, I kinda figured. I threw it out there in hopes someone on the OC list would call since I can't call while at work, heh.

    I just called the DCAS automated line to see if they would give any more info than this. Unfortunately it doesn't. It states the list was made public on October 3rd just like The Chief. The amount of eligibles has actually gone up to 40,906 but my list # hasn't changed. Either way, no mention of when the list expires. When I check for other NYC lists I'm on, they all state the same thing with the "made public on" language and none of them mention list was "established on." Perhaps someone can call DCAS during normal biz hours to inquire?

    Not sure if anyone mentioned this or even if it's true, but I heard from relatives that the guy from rockaway that died surfing on vacation was EMS promo? I heard from a Sandy victim that he was helping people while paddling them out with his surf board during sandy.
    I heard his dad was a rockaway FF. Sorry to hear.

    and if you actually do speak to someone, you'll wish you stuck with the hammer.

    I have no clue, but I doubt it. The news stories would mention his employment with FDNY EMS if that was the case, instead they are only using the term lifeguard.

    Okay, no rumors here....reality. Those assigned to PFS have worked their last tours in the field as of today. They are now off line and prepping the curriculum for the Jan. 14th academy.

    Enjoy your New Years, it's the last time you'll be completely free for a while. Get ready to work, but be excited for it!



    .....make sure you have working clippers and good bic razor!

    I know you're joking but I would go with boxer briefs.. Maybe some type of athletic under armour type that won't ride up. And from prior experience if there is as much running as people say, I'd suggest spandex bike shorts... ESP if you have bigger thighs like me. Don't need to be chafed walking around like a cowboy...

    Cocoa butter/ moisturizing skin cream if chafage occurs..

    I'm only half joking. I held back on suggesting a thong.

    Make sure it's red. Just in case you get whale tail.

    4379 won't come quick enough.

    Hope you guys aren't getting buried with too much snow.

    No need to change your type of skivvies IMO. But having a couple extra handy isn't bad.
    Would have to scour the 2043 and/or 6019 threads to find posts that give a good list of what to bring.

    Offhand though:
    Socks
    Skivvies
    Gold Bond powder
    DEODORANT
    Duct tape
    Sharpie
    Pen(s)
    Wipes
    Body Glide (Arm & Hammer makes a similar product that I like better too)

    To add a few things to Bams list:

    A good sized water bottle
    Band aids
    Advil

    Did they tell you you need a $9 money order? Bring two, you'll be an all star when someone forgets one. Karma goes a long way.
