That person also happened to be a squad leader and ended up going to a 15th Division engine company. The job is now under scrutiny from all sides. Have no doubt that every PH who doesn't quit on his own is definitely going out to the field. They WILL NOT be weeded out by the DI's because the chiefs and Commissioner won't allow them to. And also have no doubt that they WILL NOT be leaned on as hard as the rest of you. So at least with the 26 weeks they'd have to endure it a bit longer.
    I've seen people pushed through as well. As long as they don't out right quit, even if they can't do an evolution, they WILL get into the field. Damn shame

    U weren't rude. To think about it, yeah, it is funny. But, just trying to figure out if people were getting this type of treatment before this lawsuit stuff came about. More than likely it has and if so it is ironic that people are talking stuff about the PHs getting special treatment.

    This isn't the first time there were priority hires. The vulcans and women's groups have been making certain sexes and races a "priority" for a long time. There was a court mandate a long time ago for x numbers of "blacks" for X numbers of"whites". Forgot the years and the actual ratio. And another time the list was help up for years if I remember correctly because the physical was found to be sexist. Keep in mind thou that all the while "minorities" we're making it through on merit.

    I highly doubt there will be any overlap or 26 week academy. I wouldn't take stock in either of those rumors. Longest was 23 weeks and it was a waste according to all those involved.

    Just can't wait for this class to go in so I can get my paperwork.
    Three academy classes were 26 weeks, not 23.

    True AND false. There have been people pushed through who couldn't hack it. There have also been people who were told that resignation was the only opportunity to come back, otherwise they'd be fired. 40+ people started the last class and didn't graduate. There probably should have been more....but not all of those people left on thier own, some were ushered to the door. It's not a great situation, but all is not lost. Many who don't cut it will find themselves at HQ resigning.

    Those OCs at the very least scored well enough on the written to get into the academy on their own merit. In other words, they earned the right to try. PHs didn't pass the exam, and are only hired because of some BS lawsuit. Therefore, and I realize you'll never admit it, PHs have NO RIGHT to be at the Rock in this next class, and SHOULD NOT have been hired at all. At least the people who passed the test in the first place were the ones being pushed through before this nonsense.

    And, just for the record, the individual I was talking about is DEFINITELY in one of the groups of people the EEO office and City Hall like to crow about putting on the job in greater numbers, and was still given the job after they fired other people who may or may not have been of the same ethnicity or gender who could not perform the tasks this individual failed to perform. I'll leave it at that.

    He realizes it; he's just not going to address it. Don't waste any more time on him.

    Maybe some of these people who are so pro PH can give up their spots so that more PH's can be hired.

    How long are you guys resting periods between workouts? I usually take off weekends but for the pass month I pretty much been working out everyday. While doing this I injured both shoulders and right knee. To make it even worse, I got five stitches in my right palm last week. I decided to take two weeks off, which helped a lot for my shoulders and knee but I feel tried, lazy, and just not motivated to workout. Anyway, today would be my first day back into my workout routine but I am dreading the sore body, and the feeling of starting over again to regain my strength, stamina, and endurance.

    Probably won't know anything until this July class goes in. I'm sure each and everyone of us have heard the numbers being thrown around pertaining to how many PH's have made it through every step of the process thus far. I won't mention the numbers because we have no idea how accurate any of them are. I think a week ago JerkAlert posted what the current EMT promo numbers are, I don't remember the exact numbers but his posts shouldn't be that far back.

    Just a discussion piece.

    I saw this on my Facebook as I was ready to go into NYC this week and try to visit a FH lol.

    I figured the FDNY groupie would have gone the way of the dinosaur much like support for troops, and the ammt of American flags and patriotism
    As more time past since the tragedy.

    How do you guys on the job view this?

    It have been going on before this whole lawsuit even happen. But some of the guys up here will make you believe that they are only pushing blacks and females which is so not true.

    On a better note just wanted to know if you receive your email about the list. It's the PH list. It was to come out on June 5 but investigator said it was push back until the 17th she was not 100% sure of the date but that the date she have for now. she inform me that all my paper work was process and she didn't need anything else from me. She also inform me that I will receive a letter in the mail for the 1.5 run and that Ph have priority over promotion and oc list. I told her i thought it was Pro,Ph,OC and she said NO Ph have priority. She said the July class will be made up of mostly PH and pro. So taking from what I was told a lot of PH did in deed pass.

    Ps. I will take getting a low mark on a test over getting push threw the academy. The test you take for the fire department don't have much to do with the job. The academy do...

    Well..it's through.. Not threw.

    And it's does not, or doesn't..

    And it's does..not do.

    Call me silly but I'd rather have someone pushed THROUGH the academy.. Who can write and speak English properly.. Maybe you should consider spell check, or maybe taking some English classes.

    Ok thanks... When I am in the academy come July I will pm you some of my work so you can spell check it for me while you wait for them to call you. You have nothing better to say so you look for things to pick at. No English is not my first language I speak it well sorry if my grammar is not up to your standard.

    Ps. Just a FYI all Ph will be getting paid top pay the start of the academy not After the academy. That's somthing else you guys can hate on.

    Ohhhhhhh....he said yo momma whymetoo. Get ready for that and 10x worse when the guys at the house
    Find out you got an easy ride in. The academy's gonna be nothing compared to the *** whooping the PH's are gonna receive afterwards. And make no mistake, they'll know who you are.

    Yes, I received the email. My investigator actually wanted me to forward her the email so that she can conduct her own research why the list didn't come out on June 5th. Great to hear that your paperwork is completed and a lot of PH are on their way to the academy. I can sense that this class is going to be crazy!! Anyway, stay fit physically and mentally and in due time, we will be firefighters!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the update, ONE!!
