    Medic, since your OTJ I was wondering if you have any information to help ease my mind about my injury. I have a partial tear of my meniscus and had arthroscopic surgery about 5 years ago. I could possibly be in the next January or July class and was wondering if this issues could keep me out of the Academy. It does not look like I will need surgery for my meniscus if that helps.

    Medical scheduled for August 16th, list # 42X... To the guy asking about reaching 500, looks like they may.



    In regards to the notice they state "You are cautioned to abstain from the ingestion of quinine water ....... You must also abstain from consuming any poppy seed products." Any idea why that is? Just curious.

    Was it an email or did you receive it by mail??

    I read it and I didn't answer because I don't really know. If you disclose it in the medical you will likely need a specialist to be willing to say it's fine. Whether or not it could automatically disqualify you... don't know.

    Sorry for singling you out, I wasn't sure if you read it or not but figured you may have some better insight. But thanks anyway, I'm just trying to get some good news to calm myself down.

    1st tab is 2000 list. 2nd tab is 2500 list. last column in 2nd tab is score if they match name from 2000 list... hope this helps.
    Major help; it looks like half of the 2500 candidates who took 2000 are within the hiring range. Thanks for your effort and time! The site admin has vBulletin's "reputation system" (used to identify quality posters) disabled. If they ever activate it, you can expect some green beans from me.

    Hey, new to the forum and just wanted to double check something. The medical is always the last thing that has to be done, right?

    Second.....do you think we're always perfectly hydrated before a fire? Not always. You never know what's coming. If some puss-cake crys and whines after a little trot on the park, where are they going to be when the sh.i.ts on and you have to search an apartment blindly or push a hose line down an 800 degree hallway.

    Everyone who thinks they want this job needs to sit back, forget the pay, the pension, the shiny trucks and flashing lights and decide if this job is really for them. The 11,000 guys on this job now went through the academy. Hundreds of thousands did it before us. If that p/t give you a little tightness in the chest, "supposedly", what are you going to do when you can't quit?
    Not making excuses..I've ran until I've thrown up on myself.. And kept going..

    I'm just saying.. And agreeing with Brooklyn that if you can pass a CPAT, a dept physical, AND run the 1.5 mile TWICE.. How can you get chest pains durring a PT run..

    I know that you guys may not be properly hydrated before a fire.. Or maybe you guys had a big meal then went to a big job with no time for your food to settle in the heat cold etc.. Not taking anything away from you guys on the job or the guys in the academy now..

    Either someone is exaggerating or maybe they had legit problems..

    Not trying to start a fight..just saying.

    And congrats to the guys getting letters for your med.. That much closer keep your eye on the prize.

    yea thats a big question, how many ems guys are going to be going in this class. We know there should only be a max of 64 PHs in the January class, I wonder how many EMS are left and make it into the class.

    Look, I'm not picking on you. I just think this is what happens when you have people who don't want this job enough, in the running. Like you said, you've ran till you threw up. GOOD! I've seen guys humping their hundred pounds of gear up 15 flights in July to fight a fire and throw up in the stairs. Oh well, you keep going.

    These folks today, obviously, didn't feel that way. They felt pain, they felt discomfort and the rolled over and played dead. We don't need those people. Seeeeee-yaaa!

    Well most of the EMS guys that were promoted were in the Jan class and now in the July class. However there was a hiring freeze for a little bit in EMS about a year and a half ago. There was a gap from July to Jan 2012. The EMS start date was the 23rd of January. Who knows when the class will even be for this winter..

    just wanted to thank everyone for posting on here. a lot of useful information on here.
    a little out of shape now because of my previous job but im training like a bat out of hell now.
    my list number is 20xx so I figure july 14 or jan 15 would be possible.
    a few questions does everyone have to take the methacoline test? and do they take credit score into consideration on your background? my credit got messed up in 2009 but im working to rebuilding it.

    thanks
