    My buddy who is otj says that if you fail the final you can't recycle. That was also 5 years ago with none of this other nonsense going on.

    I would take anything said in the past about recycling with a grain of salt. The city is willing to do anything to avoid any further backlash from John Coombs and the Vulcans. Even if it means letting PH's recycle as many times as possible.

    Anyone who went thru the last academy let us know what the take home pay is? Bi-weekly, after taxes, all that? Someone that wasn't getting top pay of course. Apologies if this has already been discussed. Just trying to gauge finances. Thanks

    is this the part where someone jumps down your throat and says money shouldn't matter...and that you should want to do it for free?

    Your looking at approx $1,000 every 2 weeks after taxes. Give or take depending on how many dependants you claim, how much you put into 457/401, what's tier you are hired under etc

    But I don't think someone would be starting a chainsaw off the ground like the guy at :59. Unless he's trying to get his leg chopped off.

    YOU can do it for free. Just donate your bi-weekly pay check to a brand new probie making 40k a year.

    Called DCAS today, and still at 388.. I just have a hard time believing it can be so low.. People in the 500's processed a year ago, they just sent out packages up to the 2000 range... how is it only 388 are on the certification list? what are the investigators doing, putting everyones file on hold while sending out more packages?

    I just can't believe this and don't know how much credibility to give that.

    Congrats to all waiting on their run letters and the ones who are starting the process.

    PH can recycle.

    Remedial is not only for academics. You can be place in remedial for FST and Hands- on. So don't say you won't be place in remedial you never know.

    "Not on a outstanding certification" = waiting on run letter.

    When you first get that book, start reading it. 12 quiz and a final.
    Looking forwarded to seeing you guys in the field good luck...

    so PH can Recycle on the failing grades? If they fail again, can they recycle again??

    Also if some PH recycle then that means they cant hire the other ph yet that didnt get their 1st try at the academy?

    I thought the rule was there had to be some percentage,,,, unless they are rewriting their own rule book....



    How about Mark cohen in the post today!! whats a couple mil on taxpayer money for these guys to recycle again? SMH

    whether it be PH, OC, or EMS, can a guy who failed at the end or final (whatever the reason at the end of the academy he/she got kicked out for) can they recycle?

    So does that "not outstanding certification" mean that the FDNY is done with its hiring process for the candidate (other then the run) and just waiting for DCAS to process that information?

    You really have no concept of the world outside of the racist bubble of corrections, do you?

    What you so eloquently fail to realize is, is that everytime you post one of these seemingly "innocent" comments, you provide ammunition for organizations such as the Vulcan Society to "prove" the underlying racist culture of the FDNY. So I beg of you, please stop posting any of the ignorant thoughts that find their way from your head to your fingers. I really don't feel like like watching my lifelong dream taken away from me due to another lawsuit that uses your ignorant comments to justify it.

    I don't expect you to stop being a racist, but I do expect you to ackowledge when enough is enough and stop leaving the rest of us as easy targets to more bogus proceedings.

    Calm down, it was just a joke, nothing racist about it.

    The other form member replied they are busy celebrating diversity, nobody jumped on him.. and since its holiday season and they are moving slow, I made an innocent joke. relax!

    dude, come to my job and work there a month, and you'll change your viewpoints.

    And no im not racist, and calm down, I made an innocent joke.

    2nd off, when I went to the rock for the CPAT training, I heard PLENTY of people making comments about the PH's and stuff, and nobody was calling them racist.

    I understand the other forum member said "celebrating diversity", and that wasn't exactly right either. But I base things off of a pattern and you said it yourself, "I made an innocent joke", some people don't view that as an innocent joke.

    The whole "point" of the Vulcan lawsuit was that there was an undercurrent of racism in the "stubborn white bastion" that is the FDNY . If you can't conclude why your comments are more than an "innocent joke", then maybe you need to re-evaluate your sense of humor.

    So to acknowledge your request, no, I won't relax. I won't relax when there are literally thousands of candidates screwed over because of a lawsuit rooted in proving racism through "innocent jokes."

    Have you see the Daily News or the Post recently? Because I would be willing to bet my salary that there are articles about the "disparate impact" that past firehouse culture has had on minorities and women. Whether or not you find validity in these arguments, doesn't make them go away! Your ignorance and the ignorance of a few has a serious impact on how the rest of us are perceived.

    KEEP YOUR IGNORANCE TO YOURSELF!
