    I'm afraid to ask what FST is.........LOL

    Functional skills test.. Not quite sure what it is made up of.. I'd assume its done in gear, to time.. Consisting of firefighting stuff.

    Something like this I guess......get ready all.
    FST:

    Arguably the most physically challenging task assigned at the academy which, like everything else assigned, gets progressively more difficult. FST is given once a week and mimics the CPAT, though it is a bit more demanding. The first few times engine operations are mimicked (climbing stairs with roll-ups, hoisting hose lines up well holes, etc.), and is followed by truck operations (climbing fire escapes with saws, forcible entry, etc.). After the first two times FST is assigned the probie wears a 45 minute SCBA (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus) cylinder and is encouraged to complete all the events with air to spare.

    Received my CPAT letter. Almost have the same exact dates as you bro...5/4, 5/16, 5/21. Work those grippers, they'll help a lot! Pull ups are also great for grip strength and pulling that charged hose.

    My list number got moved up to the 360-365 range since I requested veterans points be added....question for you guys. What was the first thing you guys received to start the whole hiring process? Was it a piece of mail or literally a phone call? From what I understand I won't even start the process until this fall when they start selecting people for January's class since my score was updated this late.

Once the quota list is exhausted, hiring will begin in order of merit......
    This is my speculation of what list number will be reached for the OC. There are 3 case scenarios based on how many promos will be hired. I calculated a 3/5 Ph to OC ratio and a 1:3 OC hire ratio. The EMS varies because of recycles and promos needing 2 years on the job to get hired.

    150 EMS + 108 PHs + 72 OC = 330 Total Class: OC List# reached 216

    125 EMS + 123 PHs + 82 OC = 330 Total Class: OC List# reached 246

    100 EMS + 138 PHs + 92 OC = 330 Total Class: OC List# reached 276

    If you guys are looking to improve your grip strength give kettle bell swings a try. If you use the correct form & weight those will help a lot

    True indeed. Kettle bell swings are an all around awesome exercise when done properly. When I was doing Crossfit a while back, those things used to kick my butt...awesome exercise.

    why not do something that will work your forearms, grip, quads, hammys, back, core, glutes, and shoulders at the same time? Get some bang for your buck!

    I thought we were just talking focusing on grips only, but in that case you are 100 percent correct bro. Dead lifts and pull-ups strengthen grips also.

    I added that ab wheel to my core workout...nice. That thing is no joke. I was doing planks and crunches before, I love that ab wheel though

    I love me some FST, 12 mins or so of balls to the wall firefighting skills, I prefer FST over 5 mile runs. IMO

    So I got my intake interview date and it's set for the end of April, but I'm still in Afghnaistan and won't be able to make any appointments until this fall. That's what I requested to be rescheduled for, whenever they start calling people again in the fall to call me then. Anybody know if I have a chance at that happening or am I screwed if I can't make an appointment soon????
