    I am 100% confident in my source. I now know two EMS guys who were dropped already.

    The info is good. What they plan on backfilling with I have no idea.

    Do you mean dropped, or dropped out?

    they would still have to hire at a 5:3 ratio so they're probably bringing in people from all 3 groups, if there are any left.

    Have you guys been sworn in yet? Cause then the people who resign will be in the department orders.

    They spray a histamine in your throat that triggers an asthma attack and make you perform a pulmonary test (blowing in the tube similar to the medical). There are 5-6 trials with each round the strength or concentration is increased. If your pulmonary function does not drop by 20% or more by the last trial ( strongest concentration) then you do not have asthma.

    I took that test this past spring because I put down "seasonal allergies" on the medical form.
    Test: 2000
    Score: 106
    List #: 1XX

    Might be a stupid question but how can you be dropped before the class even starts ?

    If you work FDNY EMS and have any cases/investigations open under your name for anything they can technically hold you back from any kind of promotion.

    They missed his. He's gotta wait for January and hope it closes before then.

    16 dropping was a rant rumor? Unless there's an 2nd source, or many people on the rant saying it... I wouldn't take it as gospel. We can start rumors here too, ya know.

    Today I heard that this entire class is going to trucks, since the last class went to engines.

    No someone wrote on the rant after it was written here. Not saying that makes it more true, I'm just saying.

    Someone implied here that it came from the rant. I don't read the rant so I can't check it either way.

    I think they meant they saw it was just written on the rant as well.. It was written on the rant well after it was written here though, and the person who mentioned it being on the rant wasn't the person who wrote it on here. Again though, I'm just clearing it up, not arguing that it is or isn't true.

    1) Have they began picking off OC list yet and how far down the list do we anticipate FDNY to go? (I scored 99 and have a list# 4xxx).

    2) Is there a way for us to tell how far down the list they've gone? Like do they update this on the FDNY or DCAS website anywhere?

    Thanks in advance! Good luck all.
    Bro... I'm in the 43XXs with a 99 as well.. I'm on an shoot me a PM.. Trying to get a group together who are all close to us..

    I don't read the rant. But my source is very reliable.

    And not to pat my own back here buy my track record has been pretty good so far with these facts.

    I could be wrong of course, but I doubt it.

    I find it funny that some of these PHs are half white..... I guess they got half discriminated against right? Lol... This whole PH thing is just a big joke.
