    A probie, who just got out of the fire academy, didn't know how to connect to the hydrant?

    MM could you elaborate on your training.

    They were probably training, i would think training doesn't stop at the academy.

    Training never stops, but I would think he/she should be proficient at that by the end of the academy.

    I also know there's usually an academy way and the way its done on the streets, maybe that's what they were teaching the probie.

    I agree about the bridge. I work in brooklyn and could probably make some time to stay around and run in a group. It's definitely my weakest link. Need to get that 1.5 mile run down.

    I train in prospect park, as I live down the block, almost every morning and I've never once seen a large group of guys training but I'm usually there earlier than 1.

    I also do Astoria sometimes before work.

    Do you train Saturday afternoon around 1:30-2:00. Hopefully, I can attend this saturday depending on what time my daughter soccer game ends. Usually, it is about 20 plus guys there, and the group more than likey will grow since the weather is getting nice.

I accept the fact that others worked harder or deserve the job more than I do (EMS, veterans, legacy beneficiaries etc.) and therefore they are ahead of me, and I must wait. I will be in this forum waiting for my turn and my time will come. Unlike myself, you are skipping men who risked their lives for this country, children whose parents died in 9/11, and those that wanted the job more than you and worked harder. You are going to get seniority which our heroes earned putting their lives on the line fighting fires while you were picking your ***. The least you could of done during that time was learn how to spell or how to use proper grammar. You are going to get a payout at the expense of hard working tax paying dollars.

    What are you going to tell your kids when they ask, "Daddy, how did you become a Fireman?'' Please explain to me how you are going to sugarcoat it so that they can interpret your reasoning as hard work, perseverance, and dedication instead of lucky shot, second chance, and hand out.

    And please do not tell me that you are working hard now for the CPAT, Medical, Academy etc, like almostthere brags about, because in order to get to the next step of the hiring process you had to compete with 40,000 applicants but you didn't.

    I won't need to sugarcoat anything - my kids will know how I landed the job of my dreams. You on the other hand will not be able to lead your kids by example. Your are going to have to tell them that luck comes only once in a lifetime and they might not get as lucky as you in life.


    Okay, we may bad mouth each other on this forum but please do not involve people family, especially their kids.

    For those who live in Brooklyn, Wingate park has a track were I do sprints and jog at. Great spot for a good workout. Also, within the park is an adult park were you can do pull-ups, sit-ups, dips, etc. Come check it out. Its like an outside gym without the weights.

    For all those who have had major surgery like shoulder, knee, back, etc. Make sure you bring the "operative report" for that particular surgery. It will save you a trip back to Metro Tech. Ortho will not see you without it and you will be temporarily placed on reserve medical status till you get it evaluated by the FDNY doctors. BTW out of 18 people this morning, only 4 passed the stair master. The second time around is usually where most people pass it.

    Christ Whymetoo! Spell much?

    If you do in fact make it to the academy at all, yes, people will be bitching. Because you jumped ahead of every single person that earned that spot you just took. Not because you earned it, but because you were part of some perverse lawsuit that you willingly joined in on when asked and enticed with the blood money of so many that came before.

    So yes. Tell your children and your children's children how you applied yourself and how you literally poured blood, sweat and tears into your efforts to achieve a position on this department. (Hint: You didn't. So you can't.)

    I have something else for you to Google; it's called "HUMILITY".

    These kids were going in before any of us regardless. So wether it was as hard as a BAR exam or this sad excuse for a civil service exam they were STILL be hired before you and me. So your little statement is irrelevant, and you are being a HATER.
