    Jukez- Iknow you mentioned it before, but how many EMS promos do you think or have heard being in the January class? It seems like you got some more info so I figured I'd ask.

    Hard to say bro. There was 40-50 up for promotion this January minus the ones from that group that failed cpat or investigations minus the ones that will fail the Medicals which they have coming up in the next month/months PLUS the ones that got held up and resolve their issues PLUS the recycles from this class going to the January class. Too many variables going on for me to give you an accurate number BUT if I was out on the spot to take a guess ill say 60-80 EMS for January.

    Have any of you guys OTJ read "Strong of Heart" by Thomas Von Essen? I just finished it and thought it was a real good look into the behind the scenes of what went on during 9/11. He even published some of his notes from the notebook he kept during that time.

    "Firehouse" was also a great book as previously stated by SouthBX.

    I was talking to a buddy who was on the promo list and went in last class. He brought up something I didnt think of before, he said that alot of guys who are on the EMS promo list are also on the OC list so if that is indeed the case then that may eliminate people in front of you on the OC list.

    Do you guys think all the ems pomos are on the OC list also? and if so is there an easy way to see how many are before your list number on the OC list?

    I'd be surprised if they were allowed to take both exam 2500 and exam 2000 since they were identical. Since you only need a 70 to get in before everyone on the EMS side what would be the point of taking the same exact exam? Also seems like being able to take a test twice would be quite the advantage no?

    I brought this up a few weeks ago. A buddy of mine is around 2400 and there are about 200 names on 2000 ahead of him that are also on 2500. He actually sat there and "ctrl + F" 'd the whole promo list with the OC list, don't think there's another way to do it.

    They were allowed to take both. But it wasn't taking both essentially. I was talking to a guy who graduated from the May class and he told me he simply put both 2000 and 2500 at the top of the application sheet where it said exam #. He was in the first class with the promos and said he was around the 3000's on OC. I'm sure there are many cases like that.

    I know you can be on both because my buddy in on both list. You dont have to take it twice you just have to apply for both test or something like that.
