    I am confused on how run letters work. If you receive a run letter are you pretty much guaranteed a spot baring something like what happened to the guys on the last exam (i.e. budget/hiring freeze). Or if you are one of the last people to get a letter and everyone in front of you passes, will you wind up doing the run and not having a spot in January?

    Thank you for the response.

    Your CPAT appointment came on the 4th or 5th? Or the actual testing?

    When you receive your appointment, how long is the wait? 2 weeks?

    so i just heard something very interesting and wanted to know if any of the guys that just got on can clarify. apparently if you get hurt now within the first 5 years you lose your job entirely. now does that mean broken leg hurt and you don't get light duty or so hurt that it will keep you performing the job for you career? i'm guessing it just means no 1/2 pensions if you hurt first 5 years. hopefully one of you guys can shed some light on this. thanks.

    The actual cpat given by dcas is separate from the training at the rock. I didn't go to the last two training sessions at the rock because i had already passed my 1st cpat trial with dcas. In fact once you start the training at the rock you'll realize the number of people showing up decreases each time because guys finish and stop coming. The wait war maybe 2-3 weeks I don't exactly remember but in that area

    I am guessing this is supposed to mean "if you get hurt outside the job". There's no way that you wouldn't get the disability pension if you got hurt at work. As a rule though you aren't vested into the pension system until 5 years on, meaning if you were to resign for any reason in those first 5 years you're just plain out of the pension (I think you get your money back). Once you hit 5 then if you were to leave, or get hurt/killed off the job, or whatever you'd get a percentage of the full pension amount.

    Just finished up a nice 2.5 mile run. Black ice makes it a scary experience, but I wanted to get a little something in. I'm finally starting to see improvements with my running in colder weather. On a day where ice and snow isn't a problem I can finally reach up to 3.5 miles. It's hard to get used to but keep training and get used to the cold weather. It'll pay off in the end.

    Be careful! I went for a 5 mile run myself and thankfully only stumbled once. The weather is going to stay below freezing for the rest of week so there are a lot of possible icy spots especially at night or early morning. If you live in the Dyker Heights area, be really careful because our lovely neighbors couldn't salt sidewalks on account that the snow fell in the middle of the day.

    Yeah I was gonna bring that up. Are you guys really running with the possibility of ice on the floor? I feel like that's way too risky. An injury at this point is game changing, I don't think it's worth the risk. I supplemented for running with stairs today. How do you guys feel about it?

    Made it 70 floors up on the stair master with 50lbs on. I'm comin for you Gianni, haha.

    I'm with you on this one. Slipping and breaking an ankle a month before the run would be stupid. The risk isn't worth it for me. I'm well under 12min so a few days inside on a treadmill or stairmill won't kill me. I want to run outside but just walking my dog I almost slipped on black ice

    I just got back from a run about 20 minutes ago...lets just say that wasn't the safest and/or smartest thing to do! But on a brighter note, thank god for Under Armour!

    MM, you could probably answer this best;

    On those frigid February days when you guys went running, did you wear the grey under armor like shirts/shorts under your red sweats? I don't see those red sweats defending you much from the cold lol.

    I agree with you 100%. Anybody within January academy range is crazy for running in this weather, more power to you if you could do it ya know but in terms of Risk VS Reward..not worth it at all, but I understand your hype guys lol..but, what if god forbid you injured yourself..you guys cant have that man..You are the future of the FDNY rite now!!! Make SURE nothing stops you from getting into that academy guys. Im in 2300's range and I dont even take risks like that. Reason being is I wanna really be advanced in terms of physical fitness by the time my time comes for the job, and I wanna keep a good rate of progression going. That being said I dont engage in anything thats too risky lol i dont want anything holding me back from making gains in my training. Thats just how I think lol

    Haha you creeping up on me dude! JK good job dude! 70 floors is no walk in the park lol, are you at a 6 steps a minute pace?? Its tough im not going to lie, I did 102 floors yesterday.
    Sometimes I look at the floors and I see im on my 50th floor and my body is saying stop because my legs are fatigued, but my mind says DONT QUIT! Remember Mtk123, one day we might have to walk up some 80 flights of stairs, not with 50LBs, but with 100lbs, AND THEN FIGHT THE FIRE!! Thats what truly gets me to accomplish my 100 floor stairmaster sessions...RIP to the 343

    They are like this through the PD investigation most of the time, I think they are told to be that way to weed out people who are gonna lose their temper, because sometimes they seem almost juvenile about it. but I doubt they are told to be like that on FD, it's either she is stressed or just doesn't know any better.

    So can these Ph's Recycle? I hope not, although part of me would love reading stories about them failing 4 times in a row.

    As some people recently have been telling us, yes the PHs are being allowed to recycle.
