    Did you tell the cop your an FD recruit with the chance of being in the next academy class? If so that guys a real piece of work. I just got a seatbelt ticket while on vacation in California that I was nervous could potentially hold me up in the future but wasn't sure. I was in the back seat for gods sake!

    Would you two dimwits get each others phone number already so you can just talk to each other without annoying everyone with your useless drivel.

    I thought about mentioning it but I figured there's a good chance he either won't care, or will get annoyed I brought it up and didn't want to risk having a ****ed off cop writing me more tickets. It's violation 1110A, which seems fairly "minor" if it's a first offense but still no violation is a good one. Really hoping this part of my background has been completed already. I can't believe you got a ticket for no seat belt in the back seat. Never heard of that before.

    Maybe call your investigator when you are up to that point, or call now if you are, I don't think it should be a problem, they are letting guys with passed convictions on I thought. Just be honest, you don't want to make it seem like you are hiding something.

    Hey got a question for all you guys in the process. I'm a California Firefighter, tested and earned a score of 91 and listed 21xxx. I did a few station visits and spoke with some of the guys and discussed my concerns about residency, military and legacy points. They told me not to worry, as long as I score a 90 or better I'm looking good. Can anyone speak from experience regarding my chances of making a tower in the distant future? Thanks, stay safe.

    You're joking right? About telling the cop you're and FD recruit. That's supposed to entitle you to something?

    It's a ticket, it's not going to stop you from getting on the job. One more piece of free advice. Anyone who tells someone that they're a fireman in the hops of getting special treatment is a huge ******.

    I already met with my investigator about 7 weeks ago. Should I give her a call and let her know about this?

    Your opinions are not valid. You speak from a position of misinformation. That's not your fault, nobody expects you to know anything. Just don't speak as though you have the first clue how things work. You don't. You're a charity case getting a second chance thanks to a judge a racist social agenda. I don't hold that against you personally, but try doing a little less talking and a lot more listening. Candidates in the academy and probys in the firehouse are best served to be seen and not heard and speak when spoken to.

    Been running 6 miles 2-3 times a week. My pace is about 7:30 per mile (7:40 if I'm running over the triboro). Keep up the good training buddy, I hope to be in the January 2014 class as well.

    I'm averaging 8:05-8:20 minute pace over 5 miles. I would like to shave a couple of seconds off that but my bigger concern is knocking out the poorer runs. Like last night I had a 4 mile run and it was lackluster. I averaged under 9:00 minutes but i think my average mile pace was about 8:38 a mile and 50 second difference between my best mile and my worst. Though besides that run my runs are more consistent, there isn't too much deviation with my fastest and slowest mile times. For now I'm averaging 4-5 miles per runs with the occasional run a little longer than 5 miles. But I want to get to 5-6 miles consistently. As for my 1.5 mile runs I'm routinely between 11:40-11:55. But I'm also running in the street so I have times where I have to stop running or slow down for traffic. But if I ran full steam with no stops I think I could shave 15 seconds off that time right away. By the time I get to the actual 1.5 mile run I want to be at least down to 11 minutes if not better.

    I took and passed the CPAT last week and havent heard anything regarding 1.5 mile runs. What exactly did they tell you? Is it like the CPAT trials? if you pass once you dont have to do it again? etc

    No biggie. But don't make it a habit. That's where it becomes an issue. If you have a list of violations as long as your arm, then I'd be worried.
    They're looking for patterns. One violation isn't going to affect you. But yes, give your investigator a heads-up.

    You know what?
    Keep your opinion to yourself. You didn't earn the priviledge to offer one the first time around. You're only here because of a poorly perceived opinion by another individual.

    To beat the dead horse one more time about the side jobs:
    The time will come when you can take one on. Just remember; this is your job. Being the new guy you'll be expected to make it to every event, be able to work for a senior guy (and we all have at least five years on you), pitch in where you can and know your job. So we'll be watching your every move. We'll be side by side with you, but we're still watching.

    Here's the big thing to take away from all of this:
    This isn't just a job.
    This is THE job.

    I passed recently as well.
    Well, I usually go Saturday. The office called and said that there would be no cpat training on the 4th. I asked her if we still needed to come in if we passed the cpat, and she said yes, they plan on having us do a 1.5 mile "fitness" run. Not sure what that Means, she said just pick a day this week and show up
    Instead of the 4th. I'll go
    This saturday and see what happens.

    definitely will not be making a habit of it. I'll give my investigator a call once it pops up in the system on the dmv website. Thanks.
