    I went to the mentor thing today, basically no one showed up. Each mentor there was supposed to have 5 candidates, but it ended up being pretty much the opposite. They just had some food out and we sat around and just BS'd about fire department stuff, so that was cool. A LT there was saying that if we know anyone on the list to encourage them to attend the mentorship program.

    We didn't actually get assigned mentors today though, I assume that is something that will come through email or something, I don't know.

    I was there yesterday, and we pretty much had a full house, every mentor had at least 2 I think. It was cool talking to them, but we all got to meet our mentors if they were yesterday.

    When I went yesterday, we actually got assigned our mentors. After the whole chit chatting thing in the beginning, they had us all sit down, showed a video, and they started calling names. First they would call a fire fighter's name, then they would call the mentee's names that wnet with the said fire fighter. Then we would walk off with our mentor, and talk.

    I'm just going to give them a call tomorrow and see if I can find anything out. There were seriously like 5-10 of us that actually showed up to that session.

    Working in the heat isn't bad. It's sucks initially, but give it about 7-10 days and your body will acclimate. Stay hydrated..stay hydrated.. Stay hydrated...

    Some things I would do before shipping out to Iraq was hang out in the sauna.. Maybe it was just mental but I felt the transition was easier..

    They will motivate you to fall into sync. I can assure you of that.

    Are you late 300's? From what I've been hearing they ask you to come down 2 weeks after receiving your letters. May 18th is pretty late. That scares me!

    I'm in the 4XX so I hope i can sneak into this July class

    No, I am between 300-350. The date wasn't what I was expecting either but I think someone else here said they were notified about their psych date before their med date even though the medical was going to take place before the psych. Maybe that's it...or they'll both happen within a week of each other.

    This is BS!
    Some buff was given a tour of The Rock and violated the trust of whomever let them in by filming this and then posting it.
    There are some things that should not be available to the public and then this tool puts it out on the internet.

    Honest question...why is it such a big deal? All the fire academies in my area, including the two I attended, are open to the public. How is this any different than the filming that takes place on Family Day?

    It's probably something to do with they(the FDNY) does the filming on family day.. So they control what is filmed.. Cleared through the PIO.. Etc.

    I could see where he is coming from.. It's a respect thing too.. If you are given the opportunity to go/do something special then you should abide by their rules regardless of how stupid they might seem..

    Stupid was the wrong choice of word..

    Rules are there for a reason, probably because someone filmed something and released it on YouTube and it caused an issue..

    Family Day ain't the same as a regular training day. The point is that the academy is supposed to be a rite of passage, and one that you will discover as you go through it. Extensive documentation of it ruins that.

    Bam: I'll do ya one better, if I remember correctly it was a buff that came to the Rock for the training symposium they did a few weeks back.
