    I'm quite sure that that must have been Peggy Quinn, who should pretty much be treated as a God by you guys, since she runs candidate investigations. She's a very nice, wonderful woman, but God help you if you try and BS her.

    At the run you will presumably meet your DIs. If you pass you'll get your official job offer, possibly your proby manuals, and further instructions on the next step. Just follow the instructions on the run letter to a t, and you'll be fine.

    Unless things have changed, you'll get two class A dress shirts, tie, tie clip, collar brass, dress cap, belt and two pairs of work duty pants. That is what you'll wear to and from the academy everyday. You'll also get two pairs of PT shorts and two shirts. A PT sweatshirt and sweatpants. They don't always have enough, so I don't know if you'll be ale to buy more. If they do, you can.

    Sometime during the first week or so you'll get your work duty shirts, long and short sleeved with your name embroidered. This is what you'll wear in class and lecture. At some point you'll get your job shirt and BI jacket, ect.

    That's most of it, but certainly more than you need to worry about now.




    ***Lastly, forget what it says about a medical part B and what not. Fr all practical purposes, if you don't make the run, you're out. No one, almost literally, passes that second medical......nor do they deserve to. If you can't run a mile and a half in an embarrassingly long 13 minutes, you can't fight fires.

    I don't see how some one could not run 1.5 miles but they could carry a vest for 10 minutes on stairs with their body weight plus 50 pounds.

    Some are just not fast runners, I know a guy that breezed through everything, but was worried about the run. Guy was strong as a bull and in shape, he said he was running in the 13+ min. mark and couldn't drop time. I guess it's possible.....
    As far as what to wear, shorts and t-shirt. It's gonna be muggy, and I don't want sweats to hinder my time. Plus sweat pants will just be annoying if its pouring out.

    Some advice for the run. Definitely wear any FDNY apparel you may own. Also don't shave that morning. And right on time is acceptable. Even a few minutes late is no biggie.

    Working out on a full stomach reduces the muscles ability to work as the blood is going to the stomach to aid in digestion/processing of food and nutrients..instead of delivering oxygen to the muscle(s) being trained

    You can have some carbs. I bagel should be fine. I have noticed a difference when eating a meal with any fat in it. I get especially sick when I have any fat with out carbs.

    Ugh it was a joke.

    On a serious note, before a run I try not too eat too much, though before the Tunnel to Towers 5k 1 year I did eat a full breakfast at Ikea and it did not end terribly so... there is that.

    Be sure to step on all the sidewalks too! And definitely ask where lunch is going to be served for those who pass the run. After all, you worked hard, you deserve a free lunch right!?!

    I hear that full beards are recommended and they actually tell you to go home if you show up with only peach fuzz.

    Sad part is you would be surprised how some people actually show up...


    In all seriousness, leave ALL your belongs in the car. Take your car keys and a pen.

    DO NOT wear any buff attire.

    Shave an extra layer of skin off your face.

    Wear your clothing the way it is meant to be worn.

    Cant hurt you to just shave your head now but its a bit early.

    Odds are the senior drill instructor will be the same as the previous class. Best to start off on a good note. These guys remember faces and names surprisingly well. Your goal should be to make it through the academy as anonymous as possible.

    Good luck. Stay classy.
