    For dcas jeans and a polo are fine. For the first meeting at the rock wear business attire/suit.

    Good luck to those who received their packets.

    On a side note, does anybody know a good mechanic? My Relvo Unit has been acting up, the Vortion meter seems to be busted.

    Ok, broken down nice and simple.

    Metrotech for you to turn in your investigation/packet/paperwork::

    Suit - it's not an actual interview but its still a "job interview", look like a gentleman.

    First day at the rock for your "cpat training" where you won't do any actual training just some paperwork and walk through no hands on stuff which most of us I believe our first day was the 16, 17, 18, and 21st::

    Suit

    EVERYTHING ELSE:: Gym clothes which are sweatpants and a long sleeve shirt. No shorts or tshirts and no FDNY clothing of any kind.

    Some updates from Metrotech (finished my medical / 8-min stair machine this week):

    No less than 68 candidates have dropped from the Rock so far (including medicals who will recycle and straight up resignations). Expected that another 40 (!!!) will be dropped at mid-terms next week.

    Six people were no-shows at my medical date and are thus dropped. Out of a group of 11 during our 8-minute stair redo, at least two more did not make it through (one medical issue, one tripped) and I left before everyone had a chance to give it a shot. There may have been more.

    To reiterate what has been said, it was confirmed that the plan is for the January class to commence on the 27th. I am done with everything, just need the go-ahead for the run and to stay in shape/stay out of trouble. Good luck to everyone else going through packages/medicals and those waiting on their shot.

    PLEASE HELP:

    I have just received my package a few days ago and filled out the CPB booklet today..

    1) Do you think this will be for the January class or july?

    2) Im currently a city employee (DOC) I saw something in the instructions saying city employees don't have to fill out that questionnaire but need to fill something else out which was not included in the package..

    3) Does my job have to give me the day off, aka official business to go to all my appointments if im working those days, or do I have to find a way to get the day off or use my own vacation time to take the days off... my job is telling me its on my time but they aren't sure.. I've heard from former city employees that the job has to give you official business and its on their time.

    I haven't gotten my packet yet and I'm in the 900's. When you receive the packet, how much time do they give you to fill it out and return it? I just moved to the area from Phoenix a couple weeks ago.

    Well done! I have a question about the medical stair test. Was this your second attempt or first? I hear a lot of people are failing the first time but it seems the second test is pretty successful. I am in good shape and practicing at a gym on the stairs but I'm constantly worried about this part. Is it hard to fail a second time?

    I'm sorry, I thought I was being clear. That number -68- includes those who will recycle AND those who simply resigned. I did not hear a more detailed breakdown of how many will in fact recycle and how many resigned.

    If you don't get anything over the weekend, then I would call on Monday. No need to panic, but you don't want to wait to long either.

    Good job bro, at my medical this week there were 9 of us and one no show. I believe all but 1 passed, a guy fell off at 7:38! He yelled pretty loud too almost screwing up the guy next to him. I was close to the wall in my zone they could have been banging pots near my ears and I would have sailed through. Don't think those guys are done tho, it should be 2 and out but all they have to do is file an appeal and take a few medical test and come back in another 30 days or so. Either way myself and a few of my brothers on here are completely done and waiting on the run

    There were 16 of us re-doing the stairs yesterday. By the time I was finished (I was close to the end of the group), 3 guys had failed. The two guys that were with me in the room failed. The one next to me fell off before the 4 minute mark, and the other fell off no more than a minute later after the first guy. I felt bad for them, but it was very evident they did not train properly at all.

    You know, this sounds kind of crazy but I have heard one other person mention this. However, I believe it only relates to civil service exams and not processing as well. I have no idea if there is any truth to this rumor, but I have heard grumblings about it. Let me know if you hear anything about this, your department is way bigger than mine so you have more people to ask.

    Also keep in mind that if they were to give you off on their time, they will know what you're doing. Your agency isn't supposed to hold it against you but you and I both know how the city works sometimes. You might be better off doing it on your time.

    had to disclose about nypd psych DQ on my paper work.. im kinda scared this will be a problem.. Im with DOC, and ive been appointed for other law enforcement agencies for which ive declined.. And I currently hold peace officer status.

    How big of a part will this nypd dq play in me processing with fdny? I have the DQ letter from nypd and it says their Dq is specific to nypd and doesn't reflect on my suitability for other employment.

    1. There's absolutely no way to know.

    2. I'm currently a city employee as well but I just filled out every paper that was in the packet. EMS guys who took the promo still had to fill out all that stuff so I'm sure we'll have to also despite them already having all this info. Just fill it out and be done with it.

    3. I'm EMS and I was told that if I request it they have to give me the day off for any official part of the process such as going in for the intake but days for the cpat training I would have to figure out on my own. But as the other guy said I don't want them to know until I get the letter for the run. That's when ill tell them unless I can't find a way to get off a day for some part of the process but I doubt that'll be an issue.

    And if you think a lot of those 68 people won't be recycling than you're crazy. I'm sure a good amount will. They seem to be very loose this time around with the ability to recycle.

    PHs can't, at least they are not suppose to be able too recycle unless they get hurt. Also, correct me if Im wrong, but someone who went through the first class told me that they believed that guys who are forced to drop out because of grades can not recycle. Another thing to think about is a good amount of these guys resigning might have done so because they realized this job isn't for them or couldn't handle the academy. I'm a firm believer in this because so many guys dropped out in the first two weeks, and its hard for me to believe that they all dropped out because of injury and they definitely didn't drop out because of grades-it was too early to be failing that bad.

    Don't get me wrong, there definitely will be guys recycling, I just don't believe most of the 68 will recycle. Unfortunately for guys trying to get in the next class, the number of drop outs continues to grow so even if half the amount of drops outs recycles, that still may result in a large number of recycles.
