    No no....the vest and the stairs are still key, regardless of whether or not you've passed the medical. I'd definitely keep running and be ready to do 3 miles on day one, but stairs will help your cardiac/muscle endurance in ways that more closely resemble the job requirements. You could make it through the academy and never run another day, but I'd bet you do a fair amount of stairs for the rest of your career.

I've been training for a while now and I know i still have some time, so I'm not too worried about that, I'm just not too familiar with the whole process. What comes first, CPAT, medical? Also, what does the medical include? I don't have much of a medical history, but i have no clue what the medical entails. Is the drug test part of the medical? Do they start psych evals as part of the medical? Any help would be appreciated.
    From my experience, im late 900's, I got called to start process now.. they are moving pretty fast with me, 1st I was offered a CPAT prep course starting in late September.. I met my investigator early October, have my medical and psych late October, cpat November. I BELEIVE they called up to around 1300ish to start the process now.. when they addressed us when we went to meet investigators, they told us that we who are processing now, will most likely be july 2014 or January 2015.. They told us only people with a high list number have a shot for January 2014. By high list number, I believe they mean 600-700 range. At the cpat training program they told us 700's have a good chance of being called for January 2014.

    My estimate (which could be WAY WAY OFF) but my educated guess with a list number of 2200 is july 2015, maybe January 2015.

    Well said. I like the stairmaster with a vest, and plan on continuing to do that even after process is over.

    True - I was thinking short sighted.

    1) if I get called for the cpat or medicals coming up (list number 12xx, investigation early November), is it possible to reschedule due to an injury or is that all she wrote for me?

    2) what are some good cardio exercises for a dope that can't use his left leg?

    Finally, coldblood, please private message me. I have a 40 lbs vest available. I know it's not ideal weight
    But if you need it I'm more than happy to talk.
    Hey man sucks to hear but I don't know how big ur boot is but the Rowing Machine is a great overall body excercise and great for your HR I don't know if u could fit it in the strap tho either way u could leave one foot out. Also look into if u can find an Airodyne machine I think that's how u spell it have one at my gym really blasts your cardio. And pull-ups pull-ups and pull-ups and than dips it's not running or the stairmaster but it will keep your hr and cardio where it should be just not quite develop the leg muscles because nothing subs running or a stair machine except running or being on a stair machine. Good Luck bro

    Question about medical questionnaire.

    Did anyone put yes for alcohol use? I put no but then crossed it out and put yes, because I've had a drink before in my life lol so putting no is lying completely. But I've never abused alcohol or had a problem with alcohol.

    Also, it asks "have you ever been disqualified from employment due to medical or psychological reason"

    I was NYPD psych DQ'ed, which I disclosed to my paper work to my investigator. But I've NEVER had any psychological issues in the past, never been on any drugs or scene a shrink. What should I put down for this? Im afraid to put yes, because I've never had any previous psychological issues that caused NYPD to DQ me. They just stated that I don't have the personality for the job. Im afraid to put yes, because I don't want to open a bag of problems for myself.

    what should I put for this?

    If you already put it on your paperwork I wouldn't change it on the medical questionnaire. I think getting caught lying would be worse than a dq from pd. I've heard of guys getting on after being dq'd from pd's psych.

    Be honest. Everybody knows that drinking is a proud tradition of members of the Fire Department. Nobody cares whether you've had a drink, they certainly do care however if you characterize yourself as an alcoholic (at the medical you do a computerized questionnaire where they ask a lot of questions to flesh this out).

    I would say yes to "Have you been DQ'ed?" They'll ask about it, you explain they DQ'ed you for whatever reason, nothing in specific, no history, etc. Better to be upfront about everything and explain what happened. Lying, or the appearance of lying, is much, much worse.

    It's only 3 pages. It should've come with whatever letter telling you you have it Tuesday. I dunno about finding it online. It's 3 pages of diseases basically and you have to check off anything you've had and then explain its relevance to you.

    Does it need to be notarized ? I never received any letter, my investigator told me I had it on the 22nd went I dropped off my remaining paper work after my psych, And when I called to check he said to just keep waiting and to call Monday and hell fax it, but I don't want to wait because he has a habit of not answering the phone
