    I'm sure it has been discussed somewhere in this thread, but do you have a quick breakdown of current pension system works for new firefighters?

    The Drill Instructors are professionals and it's only day 1. I have faith in their abilities.
    Considering you've already been hired, graduated the fire academy and are now assigned to a company, I'd say you've advanced beyond the luxury of knowing to the luxury of actually being a part of the department. I do congratulate you for that fact. I can only imagine what it must be like going to work nowadays. I would,venture to guess - great.

    I'd dispute that we have the luxury of knowing we'll get in. I was fortunate to have scored well enough to have been up for the second class hired off 6019 and well... It's nearly 5 years later and I'm still waiting. I was assured then I'd be in. There are many that experienced that. Now, I've scored well again and I'm being assured just as before. However, until you're there, on the grounds of the Fire Academy and sworn in, nothing is for certain, regardless of what the city says about it's hiring plans.

    No disagreement with your statements about training and preparing. As far as I'm concerned, I think it's a waste of time to worry about who's not is shape or any other number of things. The lull in hiring has given ample time for all of us to prepare and to be ready. At this point, taking care of 'business' on a daily basis is probably the best answer.

    22yrs to retire w/ 50% pension
    25yrs to get COLA
    LOD Disability pension is 44% of final year salary
    LODD Benefit is three years salary to your family

    Its more detailed than that, but thats a broad/brief summary.

    The last two are disturbing to say the least, and IMO needed to rectified right around six months ago. Benefits can be won or lost during contract negotiations. Hopefully we can reshape the current tier to more resemble Tier 2, but it will most likely take the duration of your career, if ever, to make that happen.

    Man I hope that's not the case and that this gets corrected soon. Hard to believe their trying to take away benefits from people who are risking their lives everyday to protect this wonderful city.

    Every time I see that last one, about the LODD benefits to your family, I think about what a joke that is and what a joke this state has become. 'Thanks for giving your life in the performance of your duties, serving the City of New York... By the way, screw your family.'

    Also, what is happening in Detroit is down right scary. 'We promised you these pensions in return for your service, but now we're going to break our promises and cut that pension we promised.'

    Question:I recall reading that the heart bill and lung bill were taken away as well. Is this true?

    All unions concerned are working VERY hard to adjust the pension tier to reverse the atrocities that were committed when tier 6 was adopted. I doubt the additional years of service will be reduced back to 20, but everyone is optimistic about LODI and LODD benefits.

    Quick question. I check the DCAS hotline periodically to check my list status, recently it stated, " not qualified for certification...you can appeal this...etc." Albeit, I am waiting on a CPAT invite for January's class, this sounds disconcerting considering I've passed every wicket until this point. Anyone familiar with this?

    Rumors on the forum from various posters:

    122 PHs
    17 OC

    Actual numbers (as per news):
    318 candidates
    175 EMS
    123 PHs
    20 OC

    Pretty damn accurate, good job boys!

    I was so close to getting into this class, especially with that ratio. I must have missed it by literally 6 spots with my number being in the 130's.

    am I the only one who drives a little bit out of my way, or other way home to pass by a few firehouses? lol
    On another note, does anyone have any idea up to what score will they send out the next group of investigation packets? I just missed the cut with me being in the 700's.
    Still working hard and training, praying for the january class, but maybe the july class of 2014

    I get 379 matches between the two lists... Although, I am sure there are quite a few of those matches that are not within hiring range <97...

    If you can't get from work, get a USB and save the files at home. Then when you open excel, find an empty column and use this formula code:=IF(ISERROR(MATCH(X1,$Y$1:$Y$N,0)),"",X1)

    Those who are seriously tech-savvy, you should recognize that this is the syntax of a pseudo-conditional statement where: X and Y are the two columns you want to compare and N is the row number (not list number, those are two different things).

    Then on the column with the formula; click on edit, find fill and select down. Those who have earlier versions of Office (I have 2010), the fill option should be in edit and if not I don't know where else it would be.
