    Maybe day 2. But there were no tapouts day 1. That info is wrong.

    I should say there were no buses called on day 1.

    I think we're all referring to Wednesday as day 1. That was the first "real" day with paperwork and evaluations behind you.

    So....who left on the actual day 1?

    Just a heads up for you guys waiting for your initial interview packets. I just got off the phone with CID and they are "speculating" to send the next packets out around the end of sept.

    I know I coming off as a little pretentious with the whole medical notice but DCAS has yet to change my mailing address and I need to know how far down the list they went to save a trip to my parents house. Can anyone who is 500 and up verify they got their notice?

    Methacholine is only for people who state seasonal allergies, childhood asthma, or stuff like that. I don't believe they care much about your credit rating.

    Now wait, which narrative is it: Was this written test totally BS and not reflective of anything? Or was it actually a decent measure of ability? I feel like everyone here always says the first, but if that's the case how critical can you be of low scorers? Cause it's BS right?

    You know I never thought about this but now that you mention this..... Those EMS guys won't be up for promotional because "time of appointment" would be about a week before they hit their 2 years no??? And does the time count from day one in the academy or after they graduate from academy??

    Ask your parents to check the mail

    Obvious answer. Thanks but they're not home. Otherwise I wouldn't have resorted to using a message board.

    The time counts the day they get sworn in. But the Jan 14th schedule would start on a Tuesday so most likely they'll push it a week or 2 ahead especially since this class started in basically August.

    It's possible that there will be people that won't be eligible for the next winter class because they will have just missed hitting the 2 year mark in EMS. Just means they'll have to wait till summer of next year.

    Jukez our EMS time doesn't really count for anything. You are starting over as far as fire is concerned. Someone who is converting to tier 2 gets their pensionable time counted up front, but that means nothing for seniority/time on the job.

    I'm very low 300's, and I'm also anxiously watching the mailbox! However, it usually takes me an extra day to get any DCAS or FDNY correspondence since I live out east on the island.

    I think they will definitely get passed 500 for January. The rumors (and I know there just rumors) say that at least 200 spots in the January class should be OC guys. If thats the case then even a 1:3 ratio gets to 600. I think it will be more of a 1:4 ratio, so thats up too 800. And dont forget they are already up to the low 100s for this july class. I know some of 100 OC guys are probably deployed and may be in the January class, but not all. Just my opinion though.

    Yea I feel like those guys high up with military credits who are deployed wouldn't have a problem getting in fitness wise at all. Almost as if they're a sure thing. But then again nothing is. I'm hoping for next July since a lot of EMS folk took both and there will still be some guys deployed.

    Remember that they send the packets out in 'groups.' If you haven't received on yet and you're close, you may get one in the near future.

    If anything is for certain in regards to this process, we'll all be in the dark, for the most part, until something comes in the mail or you have an investigator and they call you.

    It has always been somewhat of a slow process to get this job and recently, it has been even slower. Unfortunately, that's the nature this pursuit.

    I meant towards the promotion. Is it 2 years from when you are sworn in or 2 years from being out in the field?? And also someone was telling me about civil service status and some people being held back because they didn't have civil service even though they were EMS??? That confused the crap out me lol

    Got medical notice via snail mail today.

    Currently looking for relocation options in Westchester County. Anyone with a room share in the list range that could be in the January class that has something open that won't break the bank or know someone who does, please PM. Thx.
