My main goal has and will always be to be a member of the FDNY. With my current list number I should be in the FDNY July class if everything goes well, but we all know that the city and courts can just pull that opportunity right from under you as we seen with the guys from 6019. This is my second job offer, the first being Philadelphia fire department, not many people get offers to be fireman and I have been fortunate to have two. I do not want to keep pushing my luck. I turned down Philly( due to the burden it will be on my family) and if I turn down westchester this will be the second time I turned down a FF position. We all know that the economy is pretty bad, but with July being so close I don't feel it is right for me to accept a job offer in westchester to then just quit two months later to join the FDNY. I feel that will be disrespectful, rude, and a waste of a spot for another potential candidate. Any advice? appreciate any response and good luck to everyone in the process right now and in the future.
    I don't know what town or city in westchester, but the only one that I would consider is Yonkers FD. Other than that, I would hold off for FDNY. Yonkers pays well, and is like a mini city, that can be very busy. Good luck on whatever decision you make.

    I don't know what your list number is, but in my opinion you should NOT assume you'll be in the July class unless you are EMS, priority hire, or maybe the top 100 OC. Anything else is certainly possible but FAR from probable. So if you are top 300-400 or whatever, and that other class starts soon... Consider it. Worst case scenario is you burn a bridge in Yonkers. Cest la vie.

    The step mill portion of the medical has the same rules as the CPAT (can't touch sides, etc.) correct?
    And it's 50lbs for 5 minutes @ 60 steps/min while no going over 90% of your max heart rate(220-age)*.9

    Just trying to make sure I'm training appropriately for it. If you fail it's 8 mins with no regards to heart rate?

    You do 3 minutes or so with no vest, then 5 minute break, then the 5 minutes 12 seconds with the vest.

    If you have to do it a second time I believe it's the same exact conditions, except you are monitored by a department doctor, and if your heart rate is too high again they will have you stay on for an extra 3 minutes and pass/fail you based on how well you appear to handle it.

    the PHs are starting to get their medical dates. No idea when they were notified or when their meds begin.

    me too..I don't think they got their dates until after CPAT orientations were completed (just a guess), or else that prob would have been mentioned at some point during the sessions. Sounded like maybe earlier this week, but again just speculation.

    At the CPAT session this AM the Lt. in charge of training said "I believe the PHs have started to get their medical dates" and one guy who was a PH shook his head in agreement.
