    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.

    I keep telling myself that I'm gonna start practicing those standard knots that are used in the fire service before my shot comes along. Gotta get on that.

    The lack of response from members currently at The Rock is certainly due to the fact that PFS has taken over their lives. Seriously. I remember waking up at 4am, everyday (and I live close!!!) I had the coffee maker set, a bottle of water ready to go and I'd always hardboil a dozen eggs on Sunday night to have for the week. You'll get home from the early session between 5 and 7, depending on how far you live and then you'll have just enough time to read, eat, do laundry, iron your shirt and get your bag packed for the next day....then pass out by around 8:30 or 9. When you raise your hand and swear in, life as you know it is over.

    This is all a good thing. These guys are working hard and when the routine sets in a little, they might have some time to pop in here and give us all some updates. Until then, understand that life got really different and really busy FAST!

    I'm right with you on that. The more you already know the less stuff you have to inject in your brain during those 18 weeks.

    Do they split the class between the early session and the late session? Or does the entire class do 6-4 or 8-6 depending on the day?

    That 6-4 must be brutal if you have a long commute. It might be worth it just to rent a room close by and give yourself the extra time to study/prepare for the next day.

    To all the jabronies on here complaining. Shut the f*ck up, put on your running shoes, and hit the pavement. Maybe when you get back there will be a package waiting for you.

    Default Hey all

    Hey All,

    Has anyone that took 2000 received anything other than their test score. Physical info or anything?

    the shifts while at the academy are 10 hour days and 50 hours a week? Is that right?

    I thought that's what someone mentioned previously, but that could just be for the people that are on remedial PT? I'm not sure.

    Its something like 7-4 and 8:50 to 5:50. However.....what have we learned so far? On time is late! If they say 7, that means it starts at 7, but expect to be with your squad, ready and studying or whatever at 6.

    18 drops is very inaccurate, I don't know if you really got this number from your "friend" in the academy but if you did I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't know anything since they so busy training. The number of official drops is still in the single digits, don't come here giving inaccurate information because it can be poisonous to the forum members.

    CORRECTION : 3 more dropped today. So you can add those to my previous count.

    I Can't say exactly why, just know that some drops don't necessarily have to be because of lack of physical fitness.

    I am sure the guys that are getting dropped were the ones complaining and stating that the fire candidates involved in the lawsuit are incompetent, donít deserve or have a chances at being a successful firefighter etc. lol They canít even make it through the camp. For the ones that are currently fire fighters on here, what are your taking on the ones who canít make it through the camp? Would you want a drop candidate or a candidate who is involved in the lawsuit who will make it through the camp to work by your side?

    And if they didn't get dropped based the phscially aspect of the training, more than likey it is from the psychological, l which is worse. .

    I remember when I was a little kid, this counselor was a real jerk and I couldn't make it through camp.

    I wouldn't be surprised if you were involved in the lawsuit, your poor grammar gives it away.
