    Considering the timing of your vacation I was afraid that you actually were 'investergated'. Welcome back.


    Mutuals: A nice scheduling option that will be given to you at some point, but no walk in the park as a probie. Also I wouldn't expect to even think about a 2nd job until after probation, which is 18 months so....

    Some more tips for the new guys:

    Any kind of black duffel bag will do. I got something pretty cheap and middle of the road from Modells. You want something reasonably sturdy, but not too big. You will carry that thing every where, all the time, and sometimes have to carry it in pretty uncomfortable ways. You have to manage how much junk you have in there beyond the bare minimum, cause otherwise it gets pretty heavy.

    Good ideas: a few garbage bags in case it rains (put your binders and any other loose stuff inside the garbage bags, then inside duffel bag, keeps them from getting ruined),
    anybody who is as pale as I am is going to want a lot of sunscreen for PT for the next few months,
    a big bottle of ibuprofen,
    duct tape,
    sharpie,
    lots of snacks,

    I'm sure there's other things I'm forgetting, but you'll figure it out along the way.

    Yep know exactly what you mean. A sunburned dome might be worse though.

    Prob cause it doesn't matter all that much for the next 4 months. I had guessed that they would reach about 1000. I bet up to like list number 1500 get packets

    Yea really, I dropped about 500 spots because of the social security number. I think thats a ridiculous way to break ties, they should have just went to decimals. Im sure if I get on in July then Ill look back and not care... I just gotta get on haha

    Jukez- Iknow you mentioned it before, but how many EMS promos do you think or have heard being in the January class? It seems like you got some more info so I figured I'd ask.

    Hard to say bro. There was 40-50 up for promotion this January minus the ones from that group that failed cpat or investigations minus the ones that will fail the Medicals which they have coming up in the next month/months PLUS the ones that got held up and resolve their issues PLUS the recycles from this class going to the January class. Too many variables going on for me to give you an accurate number BUT if I was out on the spot to take a guess ill say 60-80 EMS for January.

    Have any of you guys OTJ read "Strong of Heart" by Thomas Von Essen? I just finished it and thought it was a real good look into the behind the scenes of what went on during 9/11. He even published some of his notes from the notebook he kept during that time.

    "Firehouse" was also a great book as previously stated by SouthBX.
