    Could someone who got a letter confirm? If you got a run letter but you also don't receive the emails from the FDNY about "the count down to the academy" and "are you ready?" , let us know. That could solve where the email is coming from.

    Chad I just called recruitment today (@ 718-999-FDNY) and had them update my email. Idk how much good it did considering thirdtimesacharm got one of those academy emails today and I didn't get it. But it's worth a try. Call your investigator at 9:01 tomorrow. Then call recruitment?
    Yeah, that's a good idea.

    I also dont get most of those emails people mention on here. Every now and then a joinFDNY one pops in, but usually Im not getting them.

    People said the email came from CID FDNY though, if that's the case, that's the same email address that sent a notification in May that we were approaching the deadline to submit our proofs for residency credit. I did get that email back then.

    I guess that's it. Haven't seen any new updates from anyone. Sucks. Thought I had a good chance in the 500's.

    Okay chad, that rules that out than. So it's not an email thing.

    Simply give your investigator a call in the morning and say a guy you know got a letter and he's past your list number and you were just calling to make sure everything is good. Good luck sleeping tonight buddy, haha.

    Not necessarily. You and I are close. They need to send out letters and see who shows up. Then get a number from that and then send out more letters to fill in what's left. (assuming the pass rate isn't 100% lol)

    I know, right. I'm guessing it has to be either one of or both of these things: I'm going to be scheduled for the run on a different day other than the 7th (has anyone gotten anything different?) or because my investigator had me bring in that paperwork last week again I'm being processed with people with lower list numbers despite my list number being very low.

    There are multiple run dates, and they may schedule additional dates if for some reason they need to call more people. They obviously try to only send letters to people that definitely have a spot. Don't want to have 20 people run and then get told "yeah sorry we don't need you this time around".

    I never received any of those "countdown" or "are you ready" emails. Only Join FDNY ones once in a while. The run letter is infact from CID.

    I think they still get to just under 700

    Wait! So does this mean that out of the 350 or so they went down on the list and it was only 20 people?

    Well I hope the letters keep coming in for you guys,seems like all our predictions were off for this upcoming class. It seems like due to the large amount of recycles the list is gonna move super slow since there isn't a cap on how many times people can recycle.

    Well from what has been seen they only called about 200 or so more names. It's hard to believe that it's the last of it, but seems to be. Congrats to the guys that got the letter today.

    Oh, so you have to call and confirm you got it? Does it say when you need to call and confirm by? (maybe a week or so prior to the run?) Because I'm sure there will be people who don't call and confirm and they will probably send out more letters to compensate for those few. That may be another 20-40 more list numbers added on right? (who may be squeezed into the run on the 7th)

    It just says you must call to confirm your appointment in all bold letters. It tells you attire and where to park.

    Default run letter

    Stop with these negative pessimistic comments. This isn't all the run letters. This was the first wave. the run is on 3 different dates. all the emails sent out today were only for January 7th. Dont start panicking just yet.
