    Thanks for writing periodically and sharing what you have.
    Far as I'm aware it has been done for past classes. Assignments were given out in alphabetical order.

    How do you get assigned to your actual permanent firehouse? Does everyone go to an engine? Or do they assess your strengths and weaknesses in the academy and go from there? Or is it totally random based on need/ alphabetical order etc?

    I think it's need, and they try and get you as close to your residence as they can. That's what I was told, MM can send some light on this.

    First and foremost is need. After that they will consider your residence as it relates to assignment. If you live upstate, think Bronx/Manhattan. L.I., Queens, Brooklyn. Staten Island.......Staten Island. Most will fill Engines, some will fill trucks. The way to go is Engine first.

    Does your academic - physical - overall performance in the academy have an affect on where you are placed?

    Manhattan Medic, are you physically capable of doing work outs outside of the academy. Or is the workout session at ths rock so intense you just spend after hours and weekends stuyding and spending time with family. Would you recommend working out outside of the Rock?

    Some do workout on the side, but I don't and I don't think it's a great idea.

    No. How could it? Is there someplace on this job that is easier than another? No, there isn't. Whether you work in Brownsville, Melrose, Douglaston, Mid-town or Riverdale the expectations of your are identical.

    If you hurt yourself outside of proby school, and can no longer continue, you can be terminated. I should say, probably will be.

    I'm sure once you get used to the physical and academic workload I'm sure you could toss in a run or some lifting here and there but as others said...

    Is it really worth it being sore, hurt, tearing muscles.. Rolling ankles.. Etc.

    Plus.. I'm sure between PT, wearing gear and doing drills... More then enough PT..

    One of the probies was at my house last week, and I'm happy to say he was awesome. Did the right thing all week and we'd be happy to have him assigned to us next month, although I hope he goes to a slashing company of his choice because he deserves it. I didn't think Rob Derrig would let us down. And all he did was this: he showed everyone the proper respect, asked questions, wasn't afraid to get his hands dirty, and continually asked us to drill with him on every run we went on. And he was in the sink when he was supposed to be without a word of complaint. I expect most of you guys will be the same, but the few on here with attitude problems can learn something from this. But I did want to give an attaboy to the class that's in now. If all you guys conduct yourself like this kid did, this job is going to stay the greatest job in the world.

    Like I said, I expect this will be the norm. We want you guys to be awesome, and we're looking forward to showing you the way to do things both around the firehouse and on the firefloor. It's part of what makes this job great.

    And for you specifically, you sound like you're on the right track as well. Keep it up. It gets real for you in a few weeks, but just from how you've conducted yourself here I expect you're gonna do fine.

    Does anyone know the process and who to call to defer. I'm away with the military and every number I've tried to call I get placed on hold forever . I have been emailing and rescheduling all the appointments I have been scheduled for so far. And in every email try to explain my situation but have yet to here anything back yet.
    Thank you

    So i'm not sure if this was already answered but I was wondering. I have my cpat this thursday and on the paperwork I received in the mail there is a section that is to be filled out by a physician. But it says that I should only get it filled out by a physician if I have "any of the medical conditions on the back of this paper". I don't have any existing or pre-existing medical conditions so does that mean I can show up to cpqt without the physicians signature. Thats the impression i'm under, I just want to be sure.

    You do NOT need that signed by physician unless you have a medical condition. Also, do not sign your part until you get there.
