Just for the record.. Don't think the instructor's at the Rock won't know about PH's bragging about how there in the academy ahead of OC guy's who earned there spot the right way. See how that works out for you guy's. There's obviously a divide with OC guy's and PH guy's and I don't see it going away anytime in the near future including when there on the job together. I think it's pretty clear how I feel. You took a test, you didn't score well enough to get hired. That should be that. But the world's an imperfect place so unfortunatly you get the job handed to you. It'd be great if you just took the $ and moved on and came nowhere near the department, but like I said, the world's an imperfect place.
This doesnt even make sense! Bickering and fighting over the PH hires and the OCs. At the end of they day they were awarded a second opportunity not because they asked for it but because a ruling by a judge. I thought the FDNY was a brotherhood and not the color race or creed matters! Everyone should be judge as an individual for there hard work and perseverance whether its an OC or PH!
Does anyone know when they'll reach the 6xxx range on the OC list? I'm trying to see when I should push harder on my cardio workouts. Right now I'm mostly doing strength training for my workouts.
Who care if it don't go away... I am here and I am not going any where. I don't have to prove any thing to any one on this board... I took the test, pass every thing i need to pass and now waiting for the 1.5 run. ( and yes I am going to pass it). I will prove what I am made of once I get in to the academy. If you want to put your life on the line because someone a ph by all means go right a head. But I tell you this once i am on the job i don't care if a person is a ph, white, black, blue or purple. I will make it my business to protect them. i dont care how they might treat me in the fire house. I was born by my self most likely am going to die by my self. its when i get out on a call that they will have my back. Other then that i don't care how they threat me in the firehouse. What every one fail to realize is that everyone get to a place one way or another, it's when you get there you prove you belong there.
Based on your spelling I can see already your going to have problems in the academy. It's not all dragging hoses, raising ladders, and learning knots. There's alot of written tests as well. The fact that you can't spell simple 5th grade words and use capital letter's correctly tells me your certainly going to have trouble as improper grammar usually equates to an inability to read and comprehend very well which is why you probably bombed the test on your first go round. I tried to use small words so you understand. Good luck corky.

.[QUOTE=almostthere;1369678]...Even those who are minorities that are not PH but on the OC list are sh----- in their pants because they don't want to be labeled or confused as one.
Not at all. Vet and Res.
I have heard about 3 years for the 6xxx,s Hopefully sooner but I will be happy to get called.
I train in prospect park, as I live down the block, almost every morning and I've never once seen a large group of guys training but I'm usually there earlier than 1.
I also do Astoria sometimes before work.
