Traditionally out of a class of 300 35 dropping due to fitness ...... Now lets say in the upcoming classes that number increases to 50 or even 60..... Will they make bigger classes of 400 450 ?
Me having a spotless record makes my investigations go as smooth as a baby's butt. Makes me sound like if I lived in a bubble lol.
I joined this forum to get a few pointers for my son who is in a not too shabby spot on the 2000 list. I'm sorry if this is a question that's already been answered, but he is currently in the military, has been since 2008. He is a life long Staten Islander, was sworn in at Ft. Hamilton and took the test while home on leave from where he was stationed in San Diego but is now on an overseas deployment. As long as DCAS gave him the residency credits, everything's ok, correct? He has a NYC drivers license, gets his credit card statements sent home here.
Thank him for his service and thank you for your sacrifice.
Headed to the Merit Matters meeting tomorrow night in the Bronx. Anyone else? I'll be the dork holding the bicycle helmet.
Eligibility for the residency credit will be investigated and verified by the Fire Department o fNewYork. Inability to produce the required verification of residency documents for the continuous period of residency will result in the forfeiture of the New York City Residency Credit and an adjustment in the final score. Under no circumstances shall a Post Office (P.O. Box) address be accepted as proof of residency. As in the case of any intentional misrepresentation of a material fact on an employment application, candidates who claim New York City Residency Credit and who are determined to have intentionally misrepresented facts concerning New York City residency shall be terminated if they have already been appointed and/or disqualified and their names shall be removed from the eligible list, and they may be subject to criminal sanctions.
Candidates applying for New York City Residency Credit must provide any three of the following:
• Mortgage in the candidate’s name valid during the 12-month period between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011 • Cable bills for the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011
• Telephone bills for the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011
• Gas, electric or water utility bills for the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011
• Checking or savings account statements for the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011
• Credit card statements for the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011 and
• W-2 form(s) from the candidate’s employer for the 2010 and 2011 tax years.
Candidates aged 21 or younger have the option of submitting three of the proofs listed above or, as an alternative, candidates who are 21 years of age or younger at the time of their application to take the exam may provide:
(a) (b) (c)
A diploma from a New York City Public High School; or A transcript from a private high school in New York City showing a New York City address for the candidate; or A GED certificate issued from a New York City institution during the 12-month period prior to July 1, 2011 to a
candidate who presents evidence that his last school enrollment was in a New York City Public High School;
one additional proof of residency, from the list above.
The Fire Department of New York reserves the right to accept other documents in lieu of the above, under special circumstances which validate various living arrangements as determined by the Department and approved by the Department of Citywide Administrative Services.
Finally got my intake packet, anyone else going on March 8th.
Anyone have the contact # to reschedule handy? My roommate back home told me I got my packet and an interview this Wednesday but can't make it due to my military obligations.
email@example.com to reschedule.
Danny D0pe, Thank you so much. I'm sure this was answered many times in the previous 340 pages so I'm grateful you saved me having to look through them.
