    Does anyone know if childhood ADHD would affect me in the process with FDNY? I was on Ritalin for a few months when I was under 10 don't know exact age but this did impact me with NYPD. They never called me back or sent any paperwork so I called my investigator and she said I was DQ from the psych people and did provide any further info. The Dr did ask me to get further info on this and believe me I tried but these records that they want don't exists anymore I even spoke to the Dr I saw when I was a kid and he nor the school have any records of this. Since that I have served 5 years active coast guard and and six years in DC as a police officer. I'm worried that Pds DQ will knock me out because of this. Also to add nypd never even sent me a letter stating I was DQed nothing. I also explained that to the pysch Dr. So with that said what do you all think?

    From what i've gathered over the life of this thread is that people have been DQ'd from NYPD psych and it did not effect them when it came to being hired by the FD

    Anyone know what the medical actually is, is it the stair mill? I know they check heart rate among other things, but do they do the stair mill like the CPAT?

    quick question during the background investigation do they ask for any tax forms such as your W2? i know they do if you are applying for the residency credit but what if you aren't applying for those 5pts?

    at the end of my "strength and conditioning" workouts I finish with 4 sets of 25 push ups. Which i would like to get to 4 sets of 50 before next year. Mind you this is the end of my workout and im pretty exhausted by the time i get to this. I was thinking of doing one day a week of sets of 20 as many as I could do with 1 minute breaks.

    Do abs on cardio days. Who does sit ups anymore? So bad for the back. :-/

    Thats a pretty common story, especially since the economy tanked and they can be choosey. I have a feeling that this is mostly to with the gun PD gives you but I am not 100% sure.

    I think you hit it on the nose the first time. PD has become very chosey ever since they raised the the starting pay from $25,000 in 2008. Before that, barely anyone could afford to apply for that job so they were kind of more lenient back then. I know guys in my Guard unit that got on PD before 2008 with issues that other guys cant get on with now. With that said i dont think a DQ from PD will be a problem in this process.

    Yeah before that contract was a different story. I know people personally who got on then who might not get on now.

    I wonder if the specific issue is a problem on FD?

    me personally dont see the need to do them before the academy. Ill be able to do enough to NOT get into remedial, and i dont plan on doing one sit up after probie school.

    Why put the extra strain on ur back? know what i mean?

    Sit ups are terrible for your back. Even the Army stopped doing them, at least when i was in Korea. The Army now does crunches like the Marines becuz of the back issue. For pt test anyway. Gonna take awhile for all the old agencies to catch on to that fact. My guard unit still did sit ups but my active duty unit switched to crunches.

    You don't do sit ups in the academy, only in the baseline testing.
