    I love that a guy whose handle is Fdny4life is asking about time transferring over. As manhattan said go **** yourself. You ain't on this job. How dare you say you're FDNY for life.

    I think the question was asked for a specific situation, not for curiosity reasons. At least that's what it sounds like to me. But, what do I know.........

    Wrong. Your time counts at the back end, it's still within the NYS pension system. What makes him a d-bag is asking what happens when you leave a job you don't have yet for another. You wanna be a Suffolk cop? Great, but you're asking in the wrong place in front of the wrong crowd. Move on and don't take a spot from someone who's trying to get on the greatest job on earth and stay in it.

    True, things were laid back in the day and even till this day it's up to the doctors to decide whether people are fit for duty. But I believe for a really long time now, you had to give the fdny authority to look at your medical records.

So if you have 10 years as a teacher and transfer to fd , you will need to comple your 20 but you will get credited with 30 yeass of city service. For every year you go past 20 years you get a higher percentage in your
    Of your pention.

    FYI for those of you being hired by the city as of April 1 2012 you will automatically be put in tier 6
    Im a C.O, im in the Tier 4 pension (20 and out) are you sure If I transfer over my time will count up front, because I thought now it always goes at the back end, and I was anticipating starting FDNY and having to start over a full 20 year career and push my retirement back, but leave with a 20+ pension with my DOC time at the back

    You stay in your tier, you do have to do 20 in FD and you start at base pay/vacation

    Gotta love this idiot... he's worried about spending money to bring justice to a guy who shot 2 cops execution style but has no problem overpaying a monitor to oversee FDNY hiring on the taxpayer dime.

    NEW YORK (AP) A New York City street gang member was sentenced to death on Wednesday in the execution-style slayings of two undercover police officers in 2003 the latest chapter in a case that's seen his original death sentence overturned, his behind-bars affair with a prison guard exposed and the massive cost of his defense questioned...

    ..."Today, a jury of his peers looked at Ronell Wilson, everything he did and all that he is, and rendered justice," U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch said in a statement.

    Another jury had found Wilson guilty in the point-blank shootings of undercover officers James Nemorin and Rodney Andrews. The gunman shot both men in the head after one pleaded for his life.

    The first jury also sentenced Wilson in 2007 to die by lethal injection, making him the first federal defendant to receive a death sentence in New York City since the 1950s. But an appeals court threw out the sentence in 2010 because of an error in jury instructions and prosecutors chose to repeat the penalty phase rather than let Wilson serve an automatic life term without parole.

    U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis questioned the decision, saying that it put taxpayers on course to spend millions of dollars more on Wilson's defense. He noted that he had just presided over a capital case for a mobster where the defense bill was $5 million and the jury chose to impose a life sentence.

    Interesting. I am actually a current city employee and I have a ton of annual/sick leave saved up. So if I would start at base vacation time as well as pay with FD, would anyone have an idea of what would happen to all my unused leave time by that point? Would I get a payout from the agency I'm with right now? Or would I lose it altogether when I hopefully leave for FD?

    I expected to start at bottom pay, but I thought my leave would transfer over the same way it did when I recently switched from one NYC agency to another.

    Thx

    For what it's worth, I heard the PH overall "look" in better shape than EMS (first class also) and the OC guys.

    It depends on your agency I guess? I worked with a city Agency before corrections, and they would pay us out for annual time we didn't use, but sick time you would lose.

    So my suggestion would be find out and if its going to go to waste, use it all up before you leave

    Well the last class had the most diversity ever, which perhaps means a lot of PH's, and it was the worst class ever (in terms of physical fitness) . Read that in the daily news.

    Daily news isn't the greatest source for truthful info, I'd say its just above the post and national enquirer lol.

    The last class didn't have any PHs in it, it was just EMS promos.

    I heard the same thing from a guy down at the rock. The few EMS left are just taking the promo because they can. I bet a majority of the drop outs will be EMS.

    I agree. Just don't understand how you can go into a "tough" academy looking like crap and expect people to believe you really want this. The worst part is that these drops would be taking more spots in the January academy and making people who really want this wait another 6 months..... That just infuriates me.

    Don't quote me on this, but depending on when you joined the pension system as a CO you may be able to convert your pension to tier 2 should you make it to FDNY. When the FDNY Pension rep was explaining the stuff to us he made it sound like any pensionable time in the city/state prior to 7/1/2009 should qualify you to convert your pension to tier 2. Tier 2 means 20 and out, with previous pensionable time counting UP FRONT. Don't bank on this though because I never paid that much attention to this stuff because I don't qualify for it.

    In a certain amount of time after leaving the other city agency for fire you would be cashed out of your leave balances. For EMS we get all of our A/L, and comp, but only half of our sick leave. FD does not have "sick time" or "vacation time" that you accrue, so it does not transfer over. Check on what the deal is with your agency. If you lose half or all of your sick leave you may want to start to manage how much you have if you start to go through the process for FD. It would suck to lose 1/2 or all of a lot of sick leave.

    All EMS, and don't believe everything you read in the papers. It is true though that by the numbers we were terrible at the beginning. I don't know how it would compare at the end. I can't speak for everyone, just myself. I could have been in better shape then, and could still be now, but I made it through.

    EMS candidates probably will be in worse shape than a lot of the PHs. EMS is a terrible job to have if the goal is physical fitness. Almost everything about the work environment/atmosphere make it harder to stay in good shape than easier.

    Without context to explain why he is asking that question it comes off as absurd and an insult to ask here. It implies someone who is possibly in range to be hired, but will only take the spot until Suffolk PD calls them back.

    FDNY Squad LT in my volly house said that the media was wrong and it was about the same drop outs as any of the previous classes.

    Actually you are the one that's wrong.

    Fdny fireman that transfers to Nassau or Suffolk pd would have their years count upfront to count towards the minimum years to retire. Confirmed this with my buddy on Nassau pd. He had several fdny fireman in his academy class. You transfer your money from the fdny pension to the NYPFRS....ny state police and fire retirement system. One in his pct had 6 years with fd so after he got hired with Nassau pd he only had to do 14. His years counted towards the minimum years required to retire.
