    It looks to me it's not entirely clear yet what the decision means, being as it just happened. S&G, they definitely know whats going on, but they too, are just looking at this and appear to be surprised as we are. It is hard to believe the city did not appeal the entire decision, though. Hopefully this does mean that the oversight and all that goes along is finished, at the very least.

    In the meantime, don't be discouraged, just keep putting in the work. Anything can happen.

    One's not "better than the other" what FDsouthbxNY was describing was engine work. Truck work has it's own things that suck ex. 3 hours of salvage and overhaul. The way i look at it if you reallllllyyyyy wanna see fire then engine work is for you, if you like grunt work like picking things up and putting them down then truck work is for you. But, you'll have to just wait to you get to the rock to see, i'm betting you'll go with truck just judging by the type of guy you seem to be.

    Which one do you favor, my friend?

    On another note, you keep up with the NCAA's at all? Dake and Taylor are heading for a third showdown at National Championships.

    Might want to read that again; its the dirty work of members in both companies. Same with salvage and overhaul; only difference is the tool in your hand, and there are times those get traded too. No matter where a guy (or girl) works, you WILL go to fires. Some places a little more than others, but theres not a house on the job that doesnt.

    Nows not the time to fall in love with either assignment; with the Rock in between, its a world away. Even then its out of your hands. "The needs of the department" preface all kinds of news, and peoples wants are rarely a factor in satisfying those "needs."

    That said, the best firefighters are the reliably well rounded kind.

    From the New York law journal.

    "We are gratified that the court granted our stay. This will enable the commissioner to exercise hiring discretion without the court monitor's involvement," Georgia Pestana, chief of the labor and employment division of the law department, said in a statement.

    Might refer to only the hiring monitor or the priority hires as well. Guess we'll know more tomorrow.

    Oh dear, you know me too well. I guess I should also appear on the calendar a few years from now too huh?

    Unfourtantly I can't tell you about anything firefighter related, I'm not a volley nor a buff. I don't care where I get sent to wether is an engine company or a truck company, I just want to get on the job and love what I do. One thing I can tell you though, knowing about firetrucks is not going to help you when these DIs are screaming at you cause you can't do push ups, sit ups and pull ups. guess who shines now?

    Future brothas, sorry don't post in here much, but I have a quick question. Just took the exam recently (was in Afghan for the actual test date) and came out sub 200 on the list. Just wondering if anybody else in this neighborhood has already been called in for CPAT etc? If I'm talking out of my ***, I'll just shut up and color. Just wanna plan out if/when I have to scoot up to the city while I'm finishing up my last few months in the green machine. Thanks ahead!

    I can tell you right now for a fact this guy isn't 3-4% bodyfat and 6'2 170 is pretty skinny, so maybe you should stop being so delirious and start hitting the weights. I'm, 6'1 190 8% BF

    Actually there's a second part to that where it says to list ALL ARRESTS weather convicted or not...

    Let's be real now, I'm not trying to put anyone down, I;m a personal trainer myself, I just can't stand people being delirious and/or straight up lying to themselves. But I hope I'm wrong and If he is 3-4% that is amazing and I would be encouraged

    First of all i stay at 170 by CHOICE. It allows me to run 1.5 miles in less than 9 mins, makes it easier for me to do 20+ pull ups, gives me alot of muscle indurance for alot of repetitive excersises, you know the stuff that you have to do in the academy? . If I wanted to gain weight I'll just indulge myself in protein shakes and creatine to look retarded with no neck like you probably do. Anyways, I really don't have anything to prove to you, telling me I need to hit the weights, when YOU should be doing less hitting weights and more calisthenics lol

    ^ to jukez statement above. Im 5'8" 150. I have two neighbors who are FFs one who is 6'1/6'2" prob 185-195 and other other who is almost exactly my size. Both of them have told me to not gain weight before the academy.

    Even still my goal is to be 160. The message they were trying to get across i believe is that endurance and muscle endurance way more helpful then strength.

    I just read over the article. It seems pretty clear that the stay is on PHs.

    "A federal appeals panel today froze the activities of a team of court-appointed special monitors assigned to watch over hiring and promotion practices at the FDNY."

    The monitor was in place to ensure that PHs got hired at the ratio they were suppose to be and that the new exam hired reflective of the city population. Without this monitor there is no way that the city would go forward and hire PHs. The city will lose large amounts of money for every PH hired. Not just because of back pay. But the years of pension that will be received from PHs.

    I'm 99% sure this means that no PH will be hired until after a ruling in there favor. And in all likelihood I do not see that happening. Any judge who objectively looks at the quantitative data could not make a decision as Garaufis has. In my humble opinion I think Garaufis had a vendetta for the FDNY

    I really hope this will turn out to be something good for us, just the impact on the list without having the PH going into the academy is huge. They can easily go through the whole 700+ people of the OC list who are about to get processed just to fill that class up. (with EMS taking almost half those slots ofcourse)

    I hope your theory proves to be true man. It could mean the difference between me getting a packet this summer, or next year at this time, or even later. But from what I've read in the past Garaufis has been involved in some sketchy business like nepotism and placing his cronies from Hellenic Lawyers groups in favorable positions. Not to mention the OUTRAGEOUS salary granted to the appointed hiring monitor that he appointed. Hopefully this all surfaces at the right time

    Also, this wasn't too clear. Is he referring to the written exam?

    "The FDNY has implemented written policies for the hiring process, and has every intention to continue to adhere to them," Pestana said.
