I think any PH guys who want to get on for the right reasons, should prove it by donating the back-pay money to an FDNY/NYPD related fund, such as one that helps families who lost a loved one in the line of duty.
Also whoever was asking about how you are actually offered the job, it goes like this. Assuming you pass all the tests and are in hiring range for a class you'll get a letter inviting you to the 1.5m run. It explains that the run is the final step, blah blah blah. If you show up to the run and pass you are given a job offer letter on the spot. We were also given the textbooks at the same time as well. At that point you're in, unless you want to defer out of that class, at which point you have to call candidate investigations. If you know you're going to defer I'd suggest calling candidate investigations or DCAS before the run, and not even bothering with it.
Wasn't sure, just saying what they told me. Hey MM, when would the run be as opposed to the first day of the academy?
Anything that is obvious, like a fever, to something more serious. Diarrhea, cold, flu like symptoms,sports injuries, etc. Basically if you can hurt yourself by doing the exam, they want a release form signed.
Everything I've heard says that in order for any PH to receive the back pay they must fully completely the hiring process AND make it through the academy.
After that they get the money after which obviously they could quit if they want but the academy is a must.
And unfortunately the public is very uninformed about this situation. I haven't met anyone who has found out either through me and others and doesn't think it's ridiculous.
If enough hype was generated it might actually get somewhere.
Well they have to make it into the academy first which for most won't be an easy task in itself. And from my understanding they will only be given one chance, no recycling.
But who knows, everything changes every minute of the day.
So this morning I decided to go all out and see how fast I can push myself to do a 1.5 mile run... 8:05, my all time best. Thanks to all those hills I have ran In the past few months, I'm motivated as **** right now!
Great time Jukez.
Guys wondering about dates for this summer can expect runs to be around July 17th - 20th with swear in and text books on the 22nd and qaurter master in days following with a start date of July 29th. That's if it at all like this January. EMS was kind of fast tracked so dates for this summer could be different. This is pretty much all I think about as I count down days. I've played it out many times in my head and I pray to god this is exactly how it works out!
PS I could be totally wrong on this and look like a complete A-hole lol. But I'm hoping I'm right....in the meantime GO METS!! Walk off grand slam last night. I'll take
