They breezed through their academies. yea it was difficult but none of them trained like im reading some ppl do on this forum. All i'm saying is my motto will be incorporating swimming, jumoing jacks, incline walking, bike riding along with a lil bit of running. better on my knees. anyone else share this same school of thought? granted, i admit as soon as i get my run letter i will be running outside and for more than 1.7 miles to make sure i beat the time.
    If 60 people dropped out of the last FDNY academy, I'd believe that its a very hard academy and nothing like law enforcement academies. Law enforcement academies stress a lot of book work, which can be easy if you have good studying skills and are a good student, FDNY stresses physical fitness more than anything.

    I'm going to go into the FDNY academy preparing and expecting it to be the hardest thing I've ever experienced in my life. If its not as hard as I expect, than good, I over prepared, and if its even harder than I expect, than atleast I know I gave it all 110%.

    I got bad news for anyone who hope to run outside. This temperature will stay in 30s and below for the rest of week and possibly next week. It will only warmup for a snow storm that will come on Saturday and then freeze back up on Monday.

    Good Morning my good brothers! Please don't let these cold climates deter you from running outside. Throw a under armour or thermal on underneath a shirt and a hoodie and you'll be good to go! Dedication, discipline and determination hopefully will equate to your success.

    I've been out running a few times this week. Your pace may not be the same but getting a long run in to get your body used to the distance is still good for you. Under armour shirt pants and gloves are your friend. Stay warm.

    Still running too in this cold... Sucks while doing it but payoff is worth it IMO. Have to be extra careful with the ice at night but just be sharp and pay attention to what you are doing... Glad to see others are doing the same... Was sick and rundown for over a week but my nightly workouts ( run and gym) have actually made me feel better. Just trying to be ready for anything, when I'm not in the mood to workout I just go on here and realize everything is so close!

    Be safe on those runs!

    The right clothing and you'll be fine out there.

    No other academy comes close to being as tough as Fdny. Nypd academy is a joke. I would in no way compare the two.

    As far as the recycles...the medical you take is only good for a year. So depending on when these people dropped out and under what circumstances their medical will be expire by the January class. So unless they made the effort to push their investigator for another one or the dept is doing them now I imagine there will be several that won't be able to make January cuz they won't have medical clearence.

    I can understand not running because of ice, at this point in the game it's not worth the risk. But not running because it's too cold, all I can say to that is man up lol.

    You'll be running in the cold at the academy. Then you'll throw your bunker gear on while your sweaty and cold. And working out in the snow, ugh, so glad I was in the summer class. Lol

    May be a stupid question and will undoubtedly sound strange, so I'll try to word this as best as I can...

    If a candidate gets a packet, does that mean that he/she is automatically being considered for appointment as long as he/she completes each step in the hiring process?

    If a candidate receives a packet, then that person will be hired as long as ALL of the hireling requirements are met. Or some a**hole judge dosent rule against your test.
