This article is straight from the FDNY website and is very informative to help those improve their aerobic fitness necessary to pass the Medical and CPAT.

Thanks bam, planned on sitting in front anyway
Would rotator cuff injuries bar you from
During the intake, in the auditorium, they don't stress where you sit. Although I would sit up front anyways cause you watch a short film, and also you can hear what they say to you more clearly. It's at CPAT training, medical, etc. is where they want you up front and sitting next to each other.
What up fellas..I just have a quick question. I've been reading on here for a while and I want to know what exactly a PH is? It's not just a minority is it?
When it's grinds that spot where the knot is, it hurts so good lol.
OC = Open Competitive (people who took exam 2000 and are on the list ranked by how they scored)
Promos = EMS promotional (candidates who took exam 2500 and are being promoted from the EMS)
And by the way Thanks alot for the tip bro.
Just left intake interview. DON'T BE THE GUY/GAL TO SHOW UP LATE WEARING GYM CLOTHES!! Don't know how many people working there thought he was there for his medical. Looks kinda bad when everyone has suit and tie and you're in gym clothes.
It is true the earlier you get there the faster you are processed. As long as you have all your forms properly filled out and legible it shouldn't take long. If you used white out get a new one a fill it out again, don't know how many were still filling out the CPD-B as I was leaving. If you need it shoot me a message and I will email it to you.
Whatever forms you don't have they will give you a list and just tell you to bring it back when you do your medical.
You need 3 pieces of proof of residency even if you don't live in NYC. That's the only thing that I have to bring back.
If you have college you need to bring your HS diploma AND have your transcripts sent to CID.
You need a copy of your driving abstract from your state.
If you have EMT or Medic bring your license, you're exempt from CFR-D.
Medical dates are being sent out in the mail along with written psychological.
Any questions just ask.
I guess I'm not...Why the "!" ?
I appreciate that...did most of you take the previous exam or am I detonating an atom bomb by asking.
