I mentioned it about 200 pages ago, but I'm a (mostly retired) competitive runner and coach a high school track team. If anyone wants advice on running, cardio vascular fitness, crash training, injury prevention/maintenance, just send me a pm (or ask publicly) and I'll do my best to help you out. Don't wanna sound like a know it all, but this really is my area of expertise and I'm more than happy to help out anyone who's willing to work for this job. With a list number that's out on the bubble, I need all the good karma I can get.
Should be on now
Whats up, im new to the Forum, Congradulations to everyone on here that passed the written exam, I wish you all luck, I also took the FDNY exam #2000, im in the 2,3XX area, I was wondering if anybody from exam 2000 has been contacted further from the Fire Department, Thanks
Seeing some of the candidates at the cpat training at the rock last night really makes me feel better about my level of fitness haha.
One guy couldn't even make 3 minutes on the stair mill after walking up 4 flights of stairs. All with vest on.
Does the detailed earning statement just past 5 years or from high school to now?
Man alot of you guys sit here and talk S*** all day!....Obvi EVERYONE here has a good enough score to get into the Academy...weather its a few months from now or 2 years from now...Why do some of you guys feel like you need to shoot others down or constantly talk smack (everyone is at a different fitness level...if they make it great if they dont fine at least they tried!)....At this point there is nothing that can be done about the PH's... just accept and get over the fact that they are going in before alot of the OC list...Instead of complaining and talking about how fast someone should be able to do a mile....just be focused on getting YOURSELF ready...I hate logging in here and reading the same garbage over and over and over again...its getting old...I said before that i dont post but i do log in everyday to try and read up on useful information...but instead i see attitudes,complaining, arguments about the dumbest S***, and etc....come on now relax! and lets get this S*** done...
Good morning all... First time actually replying on this forum.... First off I only came on here to give some information on my husbands process being that I always get productive information on here from most of you.. I would like to start off by saying he is a priority hire, but he was also on the previous list aswell and on a special military list going in to the previous class that had gottan cancelled due to this whole lawsuit. Being that he could care less about this lawsuit and even if he thinks its is wrong should he give up an opportunity that he always wanted because whats right and wrong. He comes from a household of retired and on the job firefighters and that is all he knows and grew up to love.. 1st academy he was supposed to get into he was 3 credits shy to make it (yes his fault) the next time he passed eveything Cpat, Medical,etc.. But a few days before he was supposed to get sworn in he went away to Afghanistan.. Which lead him to be put on the special military list which of course expired this past July.. Only to find out that when he gets home that the next class is put on hold.. He is not getting younger scored very high on both previous test never thought that there was anything discrimitory towards him he just had some bad luck. Or like I would say babe it just wasnt your time... Anyway you guys do not know most of the situations of the priority hires who cares if they are not what you want them to be its the process and attitudes they have to go into now that will determine if they will be great Firefighters so stop with the hes taking my spot because you dont know anything about them.. Granted they will be some who are A holes who never wanted it but their drive and determination will tell who really wants it. My husband took the OC list and scored a 97 because he couldnt even believe it was a test he thought it was a questionier and thought it was retarded but mind you both previous test scored in the 100s so now he should just say No please I dont want this job because it is not right I'll pass it up Hellllll Noooo he better not... No one would... When ask does he want the money or job he put the job.
Anyway heres the status and where he is at in the process
Met his investigator handed all his paperwork End of Feb
Medical which he completed everythin in 9 min but failed the stair master by I think 3 ( which means there not just giving anything to priorities you have to work for it. He goes back the 1st week of April to retake.
He has been going to the Cpat sessions and everything seems easy to him even the stair master but being his is 35 he needs to work on his heart rate which he has been.
So they are moving things along very quickly..
Sorrryyy I forgot to add he had taken his written Psy early in March
Quick question to guys who have gone over there already. The social security office in Brooklyn is the one at 26 court street yeah?
Thank You Kennybobo, I understand exactly what you are saying. This is my first time posting something but I have been following this forum since day 1. After seeing all the negative post her I cant put help to wonder if the FDNY is what it really is when coming to being raciest or is it just a few people that’s giving it a bad name) I wonder how I will be treated, I am NOT a PH but I am BLACK and a FEMALE at that. I took the test 2000, which was my first time, I still have a long wait to be hopefully called with my list number 3XXX (can’t believe my score was a 99, and such a high list number) but I am keeping my figures cross that time flies.
I don’t totally like the whole idea of how the PH’S came about but it’s nothing that could be done. We all just have to make the best of it. As the timing goes running under 12 should be nothing if you are in shape, I was a competitive runner for most of my life and yes almostthere you will have to run much faster miles than that at your peak heart rate for you to see a difference. You have to push yourself.
Anyone agree, disagree? I'm not sure myself
