    Why does it seem like everytime I come on here to check for new info or updates someone else is arguing about something? Thought we were on here to help each other out? Listen to the guys who are on the job or going threw the process and that should be that. Don't see what good running your mouth on a computer is doing. This isn't targeted towards anyone imparticular. Just saying!!

    Hey guys, new to forum and love what this thread is about minus the arguing. Looking forward to hopefully being in the academy with some of you and one day working together.

    no i'm not fdny but i am in iaff member and i am in a career dept. I know exactly what this job is! You don't know why someone quits, this job isn't just doing push ups and running trails. If someone decides to walk away cause they decide it isn't for them they should be able to do so with dignity. You don't know what goes thru someone's mind as they decide this isn't for them, i'm just saying before you start shaking your head at them realize that it's a very tough job that isn't for everyone.

    I'm not a firefighter but I'm sure you don't learn what this job is really about until you get to a firehouse. The academy is just meant to give you a sneak preview of the hard work you might be dealing out in the "real world". You not dealing with real victims nor your life really at risk for someone you don't even know in the academy. So yes most of these guys quit because the academy is physically tough wether you in shape or not.

    Look Jukes, maybe they were in shape or not we don't know. All i'm saying is someone might have put on gear and a mask and freaked. They might have done a smokehouse maze and freaked. They might not have ever been in a para military structure or anything structured before and couldn't deal with it. I'm not saying alot goes with it to imply, you have no idea cause you never did the job, i'm saying you may discover fears and faults in the academy you never knew you had. To some the whole experience is a shock to the system. Not everyone is as gun ho as you and/or a workout junkie like you jukes. Some people have no idea whats in store when you go into the academy all that considered this job might not be everyone.
    Also trust me when i say in the academy you will make some of you best friends you'll have you entire career and you'll be all about risking your life for them.

    I'm going to break the vow I made to myself to not post here until this thing is done with just to say that no, he's pretty much on the money with everything he's said. See y'all in May.

    Ok ok. I'll stop jumping into conclusions (although they are all true). You might be right about the fear thing. I myself have been getting myself pumped up to face one of my biggest fears in the academy ( not going to say what it is so people don't laugh lol ). Maybe I just need a break from the forums for a while, I'm way too anxious and pumped for these upcoming months!! Sorry everyone. Lets all just group hug

    I'm guessing heights.
    Either way. There's always quite a few that come through that do. The first response from the instructors was usually, "Guess you're not going to a truck." (And no, it wasn't me.)

    Your list number is right around mine if I recall correctly. Try not to psych yourself out and get too excited about anything coming our way in the next few months dude. That is in no way to say stop training. Just try and be realistic here.

    I wasn't referring for us to start the process, but the OC list to actually get it going.

    FDsouthbxNY, very well said!!!!!! It's not about "getting yours". It's about earning yours. I'm sitting at # 58xx with a 98 and no points. And when I get on and complete academy it will be because I worked my axx off to earn the right to be a part of the FDNY! This post goes out everyone who has and will continue to work for and earn "theirs". Not just looking to get something handed to them.

    Nope, not bummed at all because I actually know an EMT in the academy right now. Good to know we don't have pay for the issued gear (at least right away) unlike the NYPD. Although its entirely possible it was already deducted from their first paycheck already. They are already doing hands on stuff... He's studying all the material from the books this weekend. He has to learn to make several type of knots like the bowline, half hitches, clove hitch etc. They already repelled off a 6 story building. He said they about to go and do fire fighting simulations already. They spend the majority time outside in the sub freezing temps... I can only imagine how much that sucks. 18 people have already been dropped and it's not even February yet.


    They don't ease you into things. It's intense, get mentally prepared to enter a world of suck and expect to be worked hard from day one.
