    I'm sure it's because DCAS has the legal obligation to establish a hiring list. Those on the list, yourself included, have met the court ordered requirements. I'm sure Civil Service law outlines that this must be published and public. Since they use the O/C and Promo lists to call for the 1.5 mile run, I'm sure they need the PH list for the same reason. Regardless of passage or failure. For the O/C candidates, failure will result in someone being forced to retake the medical and try again in a future class. As was said yesterday at Metrotech, PH candidates may not be able to recycle, but no one was certain.

    Ph will not be recycle. They can defer from the July class to January class only for medical reason. If they fail the 1.5 run that's it, its over for them no more chances.

    Just wonderin, is it just the run when you get the letter? Then when you come back for the 1st day of the academy, you do sit-ups, pull-ups, push-ups, and the run to see if you need remedial?

    Now with that being said
    There are about 197 Latino candidates and they have July class and January class to hire these candidates. They can hire at the 1:5 ratio for both classes making it 64 for july and 64 for january, because it stated 107 or has been exhausted.

    Even tho it stated until list has been exhausted they only have two class to make that happen. Its no way they can place 197 Latinos in at 64 per class with only two classes to work with. So about 69 may not be going in.

    But please keep in mind that if a lot of people fail the run the Oc list will start. That is why some people from the Oc list has been process.
    Hmmm. You would know more about this than I would but I interpreted the ruling as this: We will hire Latinos on a 1:5 ratio until we hit 107, or until the Latino claimants have been exhausted (if there are less than 107). I didn't think the "or" qualifier gave them the right to go over the maximum, it just gave justification for them not filling all 107 spots if there was a lack of candidates.

    But like I said, you're probably much more familiar with this than I am so thank you for the info.

    As per court order 186 black candidates and 107 Latinos candidates are to be hire for a total of 293.

    For this July class they are only ALLOWED to hire 128 black candidates and 64 Latino candidates. That will give them their 2:5 for blacks and 1:5 for Latinos ratio. They are not allowed to add more Latinos just because they do not have a total of 128 black candidates.

    186-128=58 black candidates left
    107-64=43 Latinos candidates left

    Now the ph lists have 282 candidates ABOUT 85 are black candidates and the rest are Latinos candidates. So for this july class they would have place all black candidates in this July class with only Latinos left over.

    So if you do the math
    282-85= 197
    85 black candidates and 197 Latinos candidates. For a total of 282.
    They can only hire 107 Latinos. If they continue to hire with the ratio of 1:5 for Latinos that will be 64 Latinos per class.

    The ph list end in January so that will give the Ph two class. Hiring Latinos at the 1:5 ratio will be 64 for July and 64 for January.
    64+64= 128
    197-128=69
    So there will be 69 Latino candidates that may not be going in.
    But dealing with the city you never know.

    Ps. Every one still have to pass the run. At the meeting it was stated that a letter will go out to more than the number allowed in the event that some one don't pass the run. But in the event that 64 pass the run the others will be place in the January class.
    Jesus, just give everyone a 5 digit number, don't even ask about ethnicity, you study work out and keep a clean slate score high you should get hired, if you see an ad on a the side of the bus and think you want a pension and good schedule and you think all you do is sit around all day sleep or work out and you score a 72, there's the door thanks for trying

    yea i agree, Im pretty sure a couple of guys explained it in a way that 107 is the most they can hire, but if there are less, then they will just hire what they have and won't go out looking for more guys to get to that 107 mark.

    But, like you said, who knows we could be wrong. I hope not.

    From what I understood the PH test was given in January 2013. Why is this saying that the list is being established from a test given 3/17-4/22/2012?

    The court order also stated In the event that there are more than 186 black and 107 Hispanic individuals eligible for priority hiring relief, the City may determine the order in which it processes eligible claimants to determine whether they are currently qualified to be appointed as entry-level firefighters.

    Now with that being said the life of the ph list ends in January. They are not going to go pass that January class. So as long as the list have eligible candidates. They can still hire using the 1:5 ratio. The city will hire more than the 107 but will do so using the 1:5 ratio. I do not believe that they will hire more than 1:5 ratio. So two class at 1:5 will be 64 Latino candidates per class with about 69 Latino candidates left providing that every one pass the run.

    But again please keep in mind that the 1:5 run can really turn things around. From what I was told Ph don't get a sceond chance at the run like the Oc candidates do.

    I know Ph took the test at a diffrent time but its still the same exam. Some people on military deployment take make up test all the time but still place on the same list.

    With the news of the wait to get on to the FDNY getting pushed back in addition to this heat, it has my already low desire to run even lower and I'm basically forcing myself to do it. Stay hydrated.

    What's the possibility of every PH passing the 1.5m run? Hoping at least someone gets hired from the OC list.

    Someone posted on the FB Merit Matters page that they're going to be allowed to retake the written exam.

    That's not true. They can not take the written over. It was a one shot deal.

    Why wouldn't they give the PH's a second chance if they fail the run? They might as well since they have already been spoon feeding them throughout this whole process. If they aren't given a level playing field with the OC exam then they will just cry racism and the city will bend over for them once again.

    I can't talk for all ph but a lot of ph candidates that I have talk to said they are under the 13min mark. It might be better for the Oc list to start in January which will allow more guys off the list to be hired.

    You might be right. I was told that Ph do not get a second chance at the run at the Vulcan meet that I attend. If they do not have a medical reason for not showing up for the run or if they do not pass they will lose their spot. They are only allowed to defer to the next class for a medical reason and it was not a guarantee they will be place in to that January class.

    Perhaps he's one of the people who had technical problems. I remember hearing last year some people saying their PCs froze or flat out crashed during the test.
