    with the 2002 exam they gave you a 6 month free membership to NYSC once your list # was reached and in 2007 it was 3 months.

    Does anyone whose going into the Jan 14th class remember what the discounted rate is?
    I don't remember man. They'll hopefully tell people about it when they have CPAT orientations for the next round of people.

    ***OFF TOPIC***

    Take a minute to keep a memory alive for a NY hero that was taken to soon. I didn't know him personally but while working EMS in Rockaway for 5 years I used to see him life guarding all the time. I had the pleasure of partaking in his memorial paddle out last weekend. Great positive vibes from the surf community. I didn't bring all my camera gear just grabbed a GoPro and swam out with the boys. This video is nothing special but that day was.

    PS check out Marine Unit in the back pumping.

    The FDNY vacancies have increased from 650 in Sept. 28 to currently 742. Doesn't quite match the average of 50 retirees per month but it's still great news! The more open positions the better it is for the OC guys!

    Bravest finally get fresh ‘probie’ crop

    Coming soon to the FDNY’s training academy is a sight not seen in more than four years: probationary firefighters.

    A class of 320 “probies” is scheduled to begin training on Randalls Island on Jan. 14, the first since a federal judge ruled that the city’s firefighter-hiring practices were discriminatory. The latest test met with the judge’s approval.

    Officials said the FDNY is operating with 742 firefighters below its authorized staffing level of 8,278.

    Fire Commissioner Sal Cassano said it would take until 2015 to reach that full count.

    In the interim, the city expects to spend at extra $161 million in overtime to ensure that every fire company has sufficient manpower.

    All of those coming on board this month are paramedics or emergency medical technicians who are being promoted.

    You have to remember how much overtime these guys are getting. When it starts to dry up when new FF come in, the number of people retiring is going to soar. IMO!

    Except that there are VERY few people who have 20 years.....so don't hold your breath. For the sake of experience, you'd better hope the few guys that DO have time on this job don't run out the door.

    you cant deny guys are holding on till the overtime dries up. Huge boost in pension. remember its last 3 years not "best" three years...

    little disclaimer; i have no idea the numbers. It just logically makes sense to me that this will/is happening

    This video is badass, some of those fires were ripping. I gotta say, thats alot of fire to see in one year. Engine guys get to have all the fun, truckies do all the grunt work.

    per: http://www.thomanntax.com/wp-content...r-2vsTier3.pdf it is:
    Final average salary (FAS)
    The greater of pensionable earnings of:
    a. Final 12 months
    b. Avg of final 36 months (only for appointment date before 7/01/00)
    c. Avg of three consecutive calendar years (only for appointment date before 7/01/00)

    So it would appear that someone who is currently able to retire would have the choice of best 3 or final 3, but ya know what? None of that matters here. The department has indicated it wants to hire as much as possible in the next few years, which will probably be done regardless of whether or not there is a sudden spike in retirements in a few years. Also worth noting that it's going to take multiple classes for this overtime to dry up. There's even more overtime at the moment with all of the firefighters who were in companies a month ago now detailed to the rock, and as I understand it probies can't do overtime for their first 6 months in the field (correct me if wrong).

    Some might say that forcible entry, VES, opening up the roof, and/or rescuing victims is fun.

    +1. Just thinking about that quote at the end helps me push through a tough workout.

    I don't know his name but this instructor has another real good video on youtube about overall health and fitness:

    I hope he's still there if I get the chance to go through the academy. He seems like an awesome motivator.

    Lt Pete (I'd address him by his last name if I knew it) certainly is still there. Hopefully he's not going anywhere for a long time.

    Ok i'll admit venting a roof with a K-12 is fun, but not with a flat head. But you have to be fast and bust your *** throwing ladders and stuff to see some red stuff. I never had to luxury of doing a search unfortunately.

    Hey everybody!

    I hope everyone is doing great!

    So I have been keeping up with this forum and thankfully did really well on FDNY 2000 written with List# 17xx.

    I was wondering how soon/how long would it take for the CPAT? I'm just confused because I have been hearing all types of news and rumors of the judge forcing 300 minority hires, then slow down of hires etc. I was just curious as to when, most likely, Ill be called for the CPAT?

    Thanks so much and God Bless!

    If you have been "keeping up with this forum", then you already have your answer.
    No one knows.

    So just to get this right...they're hiring all the EMTs from 2500, then moving through 2000?
