Just trying to figure out how long it will take me to get on as an EMT if for some reason (god forbid) I don't make it under exam 2000. Been number crunching in my head to see if it would be possible to have 2 years on by the time the next NOE comes out.
    You will get hired with a 70, just a matter of debate as to how long that will take. You don't need 2 years in title to take the exam. You could sit for the promotional exam with 1 day in title as an EMT/paramedic, you need 2 years in order to be promoted after passing all the steps.

    It's always anybody's guess, but considering the current list will expire in the summer of 2017 I would expect the next NOE to be issued in 2016/2017 so that they could have a new list ready to go relatively soon after the current one expires.

    If this is a dumb question, forgive me. I am fairly competant with the FD process but am lost as to the EMS side of things.
    If you get hired by EMS and then get reached on list 2000 you will be hired off 2000 no questions asked. You aren't on the promotional list so the promotional rules don't apply. That would only come into play if on the next exam you take it as a promotion, but by then I'm sure you'd have the necessary 2 years.

    Thanks for the insight. Much appreciated.

    Question for the guys that are going through the process now, when you got the CPAT orientation invite did you have you investigation packet yet or did you receive it after the CPAT invite, receive it together ?

    I have not been receiving any e-mail correspondence from the city, is this a DCAS or FDNY issue?

    Check your spam folder. And if you use gmail they have their new system so for me mail from the FDNY was going under Promotions.

    Thanks! I just spent the better part of a half an hour updating all of my information. After I moved, I made it a point to inform DCAS of all info but didn't think to call FDNY. Glad I did.

    I asked for a list update and the FDNY rep just chuckled...hey I tried.

    According to the NOE to take the promo from EMS to fire you have to have one year on to be able to sit for the exam, 2 to actually make the switch.

    So, I called my investigator using the main ext. She wasn't too happy. First she answered with the angry-spouse voice: the "what the hell you calling me on this number for, bitch you trying to get me fired" voice. Anyway, the reason she didn't answer her actual extension was because apparently (and I use this loosely considering the fact that that was her excuse) she was conducting interviews. This left me very curious because, even though it sounds like a lame excuse, I'm wondering if she really was conducting interviews. Did they proceed to the next step already or are these the packets that they sent out?

    Took me about 6 tries via email/phone call to get in touch with my investigator. Once I did get in contact with her I politely asked my arsenal of questions and every response was: "Yeah I'll call you back. I'll get around to it." This may be the hardest part of the hiring process.


    EDIT: Anyone have any advice for getting the information you need from your investigator? I don't want to be calling her day in and day out and annoying him/her and have him/her "accidentally" loose some of my paperwork, if you catch my drift.

    I got my residency stuff the week the NOE came out, I still check it about every month just to make sure I still have it all lol. When I got evacuated for Sandy the first thing I made sure to grab was my residency paperwork lol.

    Honestly don't remember ever talking to my investigator outside of handing my crap into her at the table in the auditorium, where she didn't have phone access.

    we first went to the auditorium. Then we were called up stairs in groups of 5 where we sat with our investigator and he/she reviewed the documents you were handing in, and told you what you were missing, if anything. If you're all squared away you prob won't sit with your investigator for more than a half hour.

    Almost positive I did all that downstairs in the auditorium when I went, but I know what you're referring to now. Thanks for clarifying.

    Where are you reading this? The applicable section of the NOE is as follows:
    ELIGIBILITY TO TAKE EXAMINATION: This examination is open to each employee of the Fire Department of New York who on the first date of the computer-based test:
    (1) holds a permanent (not provisional) appointment in or appears on a Preferred List (see Note, below) for the title of Emergency Medical Specialist - EMT or Emergency Medical Specialist - Paramedic; or
    (2) holds a permanent (not provisional) appointment in or appears on a Preferred List (see Note, below) for the title of Supervising Emergency Medical Specialist and is on an eligible list for Firefighter Exam No. 6019 or 6506 or on a Special Military List for Firefighter, Exam No. 2043 in existence on or after July 22, 2009; and
    (3) is not otherwise ineligible
    (Note: A "Preferred List" is a civil service list which is only for certain former permanent incumbents of the eligible title who have rehiring rights.)

    If you do not know if you are eligible, check with your agency’s personnel office. You may be given the test before we verify your eligibility. You are responsible for determining whether or not you meet the eligibility requirements for this examination prior to submitting the application. If you are marked “Not Eligible,” your application fee will not be refunded and you will not receive a score.
    In plain english it says that on the first day that the computerized testing was held you had to be a civil service appointed EMT or paramedic. You could even be an EMS-Lieutenant and still be eligible if you had taken one of the previous exams. Nothing is said about a 1 year minimum.

    Far as I know they process candidates for Fire, EMS, and all civilian positions so... I would not assume they were interviewing people off 2000.

    You could always call the payroll dept from your company for prior years. I think they gotta keep on record for like 10 years..
