    I read some where (tbh don't remember where, I read way too many forums/articles on this topic a day, it all gets blended together eventually) that the idea is for the judge & vulcans to sign off on the exam, with the understanding that the results will be what they'll be. That seems way too good to be true though. Hopefully the dept/city is only trying to cover their *** with the mandatory race Q, so if the results aren't drastically different the city can't be found at fault, again.

    Your Q is legit though, def worth asking, can't hurt.

    On another note...I was walking through the FDNY Wounded Warrior Bike Ride Finish Area by 70th St and 18th in Bensonhurst and I could be wrong but I didn't see a single FDNY recruiting station. I guess if it was finishing in Castle Hill or Bushwick they would have 5 of them.

    That's why those who don't want to work, who don't want to go into dangerous environments will be weeded out along the process i.e won't study, won't prepare for the CPAT, or..just won't show up for either.

    Your right but unfortunately organizations like the vulcans and the justice department will still have a problem with procedures.

    First off..when I make this statement don't look upon me as racist..with that being said..

    It seems to me that the FDNY is making a huge effort at attracting African Americans, or minorities for that matter..they are even doing the fee waiver if you are unemployed, and the test is easier. I feel like they know that people are either going to want to do the job or not, and they are just going out of their way to cover their bases so that that crap doesn't happen.

    Ya, Griff, that's how I feel as well. Desire4theJob, you're prob right, we won't see the recruiting stations in areas where the majority of people are white, but I don't take offense to it. The city/dept is under a lot of pressure to make sure they cannot be accused of...well we know what they were found guilty of in the past. I always felt they know about the 15+ thousand people who are going to apply without having anyone tell them when the filing period opens. They don't need to worry about us, but for legal reasons they do need to worry about the minority turn out.

    Do you not have any idea about a single thing that went on with 6019? Or do you just live in fantasy land?

    Well, I like to live in fantasy land, however, I am somewhat familiar with what was going on..I am also fairly familiar with how the process works, since I've been apart of a few..

    bottom line..
    *If you are lazy, or you don't take it seriously you won't study for the written and work out for the agility test..that is what it is..
    *People WILL NOT show up, I've been apart of processes where I've moved up 10 spots because of no shows, or failures..that is what it is..

    Now, If the FDNY recruitment team does EVERYTHING that they can to recruit "minorities" when the test results come back..there isn't anything that anyone can say because they did what the judge and what all those other idiots wanted..that's it.

    If you don't like it, don't take the test..

    Unless they claim that the test is discriminatory because the "minorities " don't end up getting hired.

    You really don't have any clue as to what's gone on with 6019, do you?

    I don't blame these recruiting procedures on the department persay, I just like to poke fun at the fact that a huge event with FDNY, NYPD families and veterans wouldn't appear to be a good place for someone to be like "Hey everyone we're having a new test, come sign up regardless of color, sex, or religion." Not to mention that these days Bensonhurst looks to be about 50% or higher Asian, but I know Garaufis and the Vulcans don't care about them.

    You would think by the academy that the hiring process would weed out people that wouldn't want to be there, but from what I heard from people in the last classes there were people who acted like they didn't want to be there as well as people who were demanding days off for things such as religion and the sad part is they have organizations who demand they get these "days off". I don't care about a persons religion but you can't just take off a day whenever you want and you can't just duck out of work if you have to be home before dark. Its not a 9-5 job and never will be. Alot of people don't seem to understand that. Whatever religion you are, someone else in your house is the same with more seniority then you who will get that day off before you will. How many Catholic or Christian Probies are off for Christmas or Easter?

    I am from bensonhurst and I have never seen recruiters here. I will make sure and mention that to every person who ever tells me the department has racist practices.

    Since you are going to be stupid..my new answer is..

    No, I have no clue what is going on with list 6019..you know why I don't know, because I could care less, because I am not on it..and because it is pretty much no longer valid...so when they start to hire people off it..let me know.

    Is that better? is that the type of answer you were looking for?

    for those of you on that list, other then this momo, please excuse my sarcasm.

    Desire4theJob, do you mean in the last class off 2043, or the class off 6019? I always assumed the first 2-3 classes off a list were full of guys pretty much amped about having the job. Wouldn't expect to hear that about the top 1000 guys on a list.

    does any one know if the emt cert you need for the Fdny FF is the same as the one you need for the EMS?
    The reason I ask is that I need a job. I know I wont make the promotional but figured I would get the EMT I need for FF and I could try and get on EMS in the meantime. If I don't make it onto EMS I would have needed the Cert anyway, assuming its the same one?
