    Today I called DCAS for an update on the status of exam #2000, and they told me the list was just established this past june 2013 and that they just started calling off it.

    I read about the list in the chief last fall 2012 and found out my list # that way. Does anybody have any idea what was meant by this info that was given to me?

    It is but they know monitor you during your warmup and you can't double your resting heart rate while doing the warm up. If you double it you don't even get to put the vest on and you have to come back a 2nd time. During the second attempt I if you double it again you can go on with the vest but you have to stay on for 8 minutes.

    Ooo ok, I know that was mentioned here a while ago. How long's the warm up anyways? And I'm assuming they measure your resting heart rate while you sitting down before the warm up?

    I don't understand this either. Your resting rate (assuming you guys have been training like beasts like I have) will be somewhere in the low 60's or upper 50's. A normal active heart rate (assuming you're an active adult male) should be around 145 to 175. I'm really worried on how they are actually conducting this.

    Hey bro, I'm in your boat. Us young guys gotta show these old timers how it's done! haha (kidding)

    When I went for my intake investigation I was still 20. I showed my highschool transcript, W2's from 2010-2011 and a notarized letter stating my parents supported me. I also showed up with bank statements from 2010-2011 and my sealed college transcript but I don't even think she looked at them because I already qualified for my residency points. So as long as you have those three things (H.S. Transcript, W2's and the NOTARIZED letter) you should be alright. Good luck man, you've got some time but don't let it creep up on you either. Gathering some of those documents were a pain in the *****.

    Listen guys, the second stair mill test shouldn't worry you unless you are out of shape, or you know you have a heart condition. Get on, step by step, and plan for a 8 min. trek up.
    If you are in shape, this should be no issue. Just don't be nervous, and speed your hr up, it's just another stair mill session at the gym.

    Damn stair master got me today as well...and most everyone else for that matter! I made it past the warm up and was "qualified" to take the 5:12 test with the weighted vest. At the end of 5:12, my heart rate was over the max, and they said "see you in about a month".

    Anywho, the way it goes is...You jump on the step machine with no vest for 3 minutes. Your heart rate is dependent on your age, there was no doubling your resting heart rate thing going on (at least not that I was told). They have a chart with the maximum heart rate for each age in years. So for example, I'm 36 (Yes I'm an old fart now, lol) and on the chart it says 36 years of age = max heart rate of 166. THAT is the heart rate you cannot go over during the no weight phase, and the weighted vest phase. If you go over that on the no weight phase, you no get to use weights and play with big boys, lol. If you don't go over, then you are "qualified" to take the test with weighted vest.

    If you fail the weighted portion, then you get to pick a date to come back and retry. The longest you get is 1 month. On your retry, you go through the same song and dance (No weight 3 mins, then weighted for 5 mins 12 sec). There will be a doctor monitoring on the retry. If you do not go over max heart rate at the 5min 12 sec mark, you pass and you are done. If your heart rate is over, then doc gives ok (depending on how you look) to go on until you reach 8 mins. If you reach 8 mins, and doc looks at you and you aren't ready to keel over or something, then you pass.

    Sorry for the long explanation, and hope if helped you and not further confused you.

    Question here. I passed everything up to and including the medical and psych. I should be getting a letter for the run for the January academy, and just want to make sure.. They don't skip anybody on the list do they?

    Even though I've passed everything and am still eligible, I wanna make sure that I get that letter for the run in January.

    This is a dream job for me and I'm training 5 days a week for this, as hard as I can. I'll be damned if I pass everything, and somehow still don't get a letter in the mail for the 1.5 mile run come January.
    FDNY exam 2000 score: 104

    list number: 2xx

    guys Im guessing that after the medical and psych thats when the investigators call your past jobs? Would it disqualify me you think if I have been fired from a couple of jobs for just not being good at the job not stealing etc?

    if you fail the stair master the first time around to not worry..seriously do not worry. the second time around it will not matter..YOU NEED TO KEEP STEPPING! do not give up because if you do then you will fail. it doesn't matter what your heart rate is so long as you complete the entire time allotted to you. a dude going alongside me fell off with about 35 seconds left and he failed. focus on your footing and getting a rhythm down and you cannot go wrong.

    I have time to prepare which is why this forum is great. But my best bet would be to buy a weighted vest. Put 80lbs in it. and go on the step mill in your gym and monitor your heart rate. This seems like a sure "fire" way to pass the medical.

    Also my PM is on now so lets get an email group together for ppl in the bensonhurst area that wanna get a group training session going.

    Guys are just getting hurt, there are young guys and older guys getting hurt. A lot of leg injuries that I see. On the quitting side, yes, people just can't keep up with the physical demands. Only a few quit because they are afraid of the job itself.
