    Met with mine on the 3rd.

    What if the business is closed so there's no one there to confirm these things? Those letters are what I'm most worried about in this process because one or two of my previous employers I didn't leave on the best terms and they might try to screw me.

I hope this helps.
    Yea but they also pretty much inform your boss that your most likely leaving your job. For some people this isn't a big deal but for others it is-which is why in the past I thought they waited as long as possible to send it.

    For businesses that are closed there is nothing they can do. That happened to my brother when he was going through the process. 2 jobs he worked were closed and the other one his manager passed away so they had nobody to contact. As for employers saying bad things, I was worried about the same issue but I don't think that will play much of a role in your process. Especially considering of your current employer, your references, and your character all say good enough things about you.

    Yes this is true. I wasn't expecting them to send these out so early. Luckily for me my boss already anticipated it because I told him my plan to take this job. But for some people this could definately be an issue.

    When I lived in Brooklyn with my now ex, everything was in her name. Lease, bills, etc. Other than my credit card bills and license, I had no actual proof. Don't ask me why, I was very young and she won the coin flip. Thank god I didn't destroy any correspondence with her cause I had to contact her a year or two after we split and ask for her to write a letter and have notarized stating that I lived with her at such and such time in the city. I think back to it and am like, wow, if I was a real %#@#^ to her she could of screwed up everything for me.

    How big a factor is the stair master in getting into the FDNY.. I've been going to gym and using stair master with a vest and its not easy.. I can do the cpat time with no problem, but how is it at the medical? I know its been talked about b4 but can we just elaborate again real quick what the medical stairmaster involves and if it involves vest.

    3 minute warmup with no vest on. Followed by 5:12 with 50 lbs on. If you fail
    And have to go back you will need to so 8 minutes with the 50 lbs on .

    The difference is this time they monitor your heart rate. 200-your age is the max your heart rate can go.

    It's hugely important. People go on about their training schedules and tips/tricks/etc for pages on here for a reason. Stair training isn't important for just getting on the job, it's going to be important for the rest of your (potential) career.

    2nd time heart rate doesn't really matter unless you're under they'll stop you at 5:12. The max is 220-age*.9

    Well ur doing the right thing right now by training with a vest, hopefully one thats 50-80lbs. If the cpat was no problem for you then you should be fine as long as you keep training. After the cpat, i started training with a 50lb vest 2-3 times a week. In only 5 weeks i went from being able to go for just a little over 4 minutes to, now, a whole 10 minutes (give or take a few seconds lol). How long can u stay on right now?

    Out of curiosity how often were you training stairs with the vest on?
