    Sounds like 60 have passed so far and that the medicals might still be ongoing.

    If list 2000 is not touched, the countdown doesn't start..then, hypothetically wouldn't more people in the end be hired? So.. That's a good thing?.. Right?

    Man, these PHs are killing you guys. Hang in there; seems pretty bleak now but it'll get better. I would plan on this happening a couple times until city hall sees enough diversity to shut the feds up. Bloomberg may not be on board with them, but he sure as hell doesn't want to hear any more crap. I don't know what percentage is deemed appropriate, but some bean counter has it figured out. Also, have no doubt that attempts will be made to fudge the scores of PH candidates who fail something in order to get them on. This is big time politics here, and the job as a whole IS going to suffer for it. What's happening to you guys now is just the beginning; pretty soon lives are going to be in the hands of almostthere and company.

    Hi Guys,
    First post but I've been a long time follower of this thread. Thanks for all the great info!

    Just took my CPAT yesterday, another box checked! Anyone from Jersey looking for a training partner? These long runs are getting pretty tedious by myself. I'm in the ocean/monmouth county area.

    Oh and a heads up for all us waiting for Medical appointment dates. My investigator told me the cut off for July has passed so don't expect anything for a while. However, my list number is 63X. Just food for thought.

    Be a U.S. citizen at the time of appointment;
    Be at least 21 years of age;
    Be able to prove your identity and the right to obtain employment in the United States under the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986;
    Meet established medical and psychological guidelines and pass a drug screening;
    Demonstrate proof of good character and pass a background investigation;
    Be able to understand and be understood in English;
    By the date of appointment, have a four year high school diploma or its educational equivalent and at least 15 college semester credits earned as a result of satisfactory completion of course work at a college or university accredited by an accrediting body recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education or; full time military service with an honorable discharge; or 6 months of full time, satisfactory paid work experience;

    In addition, you will be required to be a Certified First Responder with Defibrillation (CFR-D) by the end of your probationary period. FDNY provides a CFR-D training program during the probationary Firefighter training course. Upon successful completion of FDNY's CFR-D course and receipt of our CFR-D certificate, payroll deductions will commence at a rate of $30 per pay period until the total cost of the training course is recouped by FDNY. Those who fail to obtain a CFR-D by the end of probation will be terminated.

    You have to be a resident by the time of appointment. The only thing is that he wouldn't be able to claim res points on the exam. Unless he has family and mail going to their house this whole time while he's living in jersey. Believe me there's a few people like that out there in this crazy planet
    Test 2000

    Do I stand a chance?

    I will not tire, I will not falter, and I will not fail!!!

    Yeah man, anyone from anywhere can TAKE the test. I've met plenty who came from out of state, but you need to be living in the 5 boro's or outlying counties by the time you hit academy.

    When you said "I would plan on this happening a couple times until city hall sees enough diversity to shut the feds up", did you mean that they may try and get the January class fully consisted of PH's as well? How could they do that with the 3:2 hire ratio? Wouldn't them not hiring any off of the OC list be violating the 3:2 hire ratio terms? This is ridiculous.

    I could be wrong but I think after this incoming July class, there won't be enough PH's to fill an entire class even if every eligible one passed every step of the process...I hope.
