    The 85 number is the number of recycles and remaining EMS promos and PH's. I dont think they even had 85 drops last class.

    They could be from the class before last, I imagine if people were injured they might not be cleared to go back the very next class

    Definitely, I know one Ems guy who will be joining us in July because they didn't want him back in right away due to his type of injury. Was a legit one.

    If, God forbid, you get injured while in the academy, what happens? I'm referring to a legitimate injury sustained while training and not just dropping out because you couldn't hack it. Are you just forced to resign and drop off the payroll until you recycle or do you get light duty until the next class and you recycle?

    I ask not because I'm expecting to work the system but because I've got kids and a family to support and I'm trying to have all bases and contingencies covered if in fact the worst does happen.

    I believe if im not mistaken there was 318 probies in the last academy. I know for sure 242 Graduated. That means 76 people didnt make it. Normal failing academy rate is like 10% I read somewhere, that academy class had a dropout/ failure rate (however you may see it as) of nearly 24%...

    Ive read previously a couple of pages back that theres actually a list of the probies that have just entered the academy that will be available at some time soon. How do you get acces to that? Thats pretty interesting. And why do they allow that information available? Not sayin its bad im just curious

    We get that list in the department orders which is more detailed than the one the public gets.
    Here are department orders for the public, but I didn't see the list yet, and I didn't check at work to see of they came out.

    Are you coming from another city job? That makes a difference.

    If you are, I believe, you go on light duty until you are cleared by the doctor and then you return to whatever your previous position was until the next class.

    If not I imagine they would put you on a light duty status until you get cleared which would mean being on payroll. After you're cleared you'd have to wait for the next class but I don't think there's any job options through FDNY as you wait which would mean you're off their payroll.

    Haven't been in the situation and I am a current city employee so can't really speak definitively.

    Very simple. Your investigator will take your W2s at intake. I'd bring 6 months of paystubs to give them as well just in case.

    I don't think that's the case. If someone has an injury at the academy that prevents them from continuing I believe they are given a light duty spot until the next class starts.

    OK, that's awesome. Just wanted to check, just in case it was a pain in the *** and it would be easier to just go finish some credits lol

    Thanks for the info medic and jk.
    I am not currently a city employee and I know once I leave my current post there's no going back. Obviously if I hurt myself playing basketball on the weekend I don't expect anything but if break a leg or some other worst case scenario during academy training I would like to think they don't just toss you out on your *** until you recover and recycle. Freak accidents do happen and I just wanna be set up if god forbid one does occur.
    Thanks again.

    I don't remember dealing with this the last time, but are the Health Office ppl ballbusters with the TB exam? I'm going in Friday for a visit with their cardio doc and that'll 72 hours (give or take) from my med exam. Ya think they're going to bust my balls and make me get another shot or no?

    I was just gonna say that, guys always say they are ready, and they assume guys getting hurt is a big joke. It's not, the academy takes it's toll on you very early. You must adjust to it, it doesn't adjust to you.

    if people want to try out a new job and see if its for them go work at mcdonalds or drive a bus. some people wait forever to get on this job and to quit on the first day cause your not in shape is a sham. from day 1 when you get your packet they drill it in to our heads to be in shape. its not a joke. an injury is one thing but to not be ready when most of us have months if not years to prepare isnt gonna cut it. these guys who give up wasted alot of time and resources of their mentors and investigators and instructors when they could have been putting in time on people who really want the job and who are ready. the academy sucks we know that but if your physically and mentally ready it will suck that much less. dont mean to stir the pot here just speaking my mind. good luck to all the guys still hanging in there. dont quit.
