    Here is a running template/interval workout some may be interested in.

    http://www.specialtactics.com/intervaltraining.pdf

    Hill/Stair sprints and shuttle runs are also good training tools.

    As for training for the academy/FST/the actual jobs... Weighted carries, sled pushes/pulls and partner carries and bear crawls are great tools... in my opinion... I am simply trying to share info.

    I know that actual sleds are expensive... However, I made my own with an old tire, a large eye bolt, a couple of nuts and washers, along with some webbing (or rope)... I put 50lbs inside the tire, but it will fit more, if you have it... You can also have someone sit on the tire, if available... It can be pulled on many surfaces, but asphalt seems to be the hardest (I usually pull it on an AstroTurf surface).

    Another tool I was able to procure was an old length of hose, folded into a 'pack' to carry... However, if you have an old duffle bag... one can be made without much cost.... Take two heavy duty garbage bags, place one inside the other... Get some sand and place it inside the bags (50lbs play sand can be bought at Home Depot/Lowes for about $4-$5)... Then tie the top, tape it with duck tape above/below the knot... Place this into the duffle bag and now you have a 'pack' to carry on your shoulder... If you have rope, you can attach it and drag that around... Except on asphalt/concrete.

    Also... I typically use these tools alone... Sometimes, if I am lucky, my girlfriend comes along and sits on the tire and allows me to carry her around... But if interested, anyone is welcome to come along and train... minus the carrying around part!

    Question does the medical form have to be completed before the info session? Or can you bring it the first day of your training that you sign up for?

    In regards to LASIK there's two options. There is LASIK and PRK. If you can take off at least a week from work I'd recommend PRK. It is much safer.

    LASIK: cut a flap, do laser, lay flap down but flap never actually heals and can be dislodged from impact and such which can cause infection and all kinds of other crap

    PRK: much easier and safer procedure for you as well as for the doctor to perform. No flap is cut but the downside is during the first 2-3 days some people have found it painful, I didn't it was just itching annoyance because it's technically a scab healing just like a regular cut but you need a full week before you'll be able to see very well.

    Both methods are practiced but PRK has a much longer and safer history. When I choose that my doctor though I was silly but he said he was very glad I did given my line of work and how much easier it would be for him to perform the procedure with a lot less of a risk for messing anything up.

    Found an interesting documentary in the apple App Store about the Denver fire academy. Follows them going through their exercises, training and classroom stuff. Search "Ricky's Rib Shack". It was $5 but definitely worth it for an hour and a half movie. Worth watching if anyone is curious. Very educational and informative.

    Yep, get ready to get your *** kicked. Only thing is I only wish you get to put your face piece, hood, and helmet on with no gloves. At the Rock, you will do that with gloves and they are yelling at you to hurry your *** up......lol

    hey fellas, I spoke to my investigator yesterday and while she still wouldn't tell me anything specific about my case she said all of our "folders" have gone to the investigators superiors for review for sign off.

    Not sure if you guys ever saw this page but I found this a while ago.

    http://www.nyc.gov/html/fdny/pdf/pub...edals_2013.pdf

    Scroll to page 26 and you'll see the investigators. I myself have talked to 3 of them.

    Hopefulff, good to hear from you again. So by going to review for sign off does that mean if you get the sign off youll get a run letter?

    if you're within their hiring range for January, ya. When I met with my investigator in March she mentioned there was something like a review board that goes over all the cases once the investigators pass them off. Just my opinion based on no inside info, but I can't see this board trying to dig in to our cases if the investigator signed off on them unless maybe you've got some arrests on your record or something. My investigator would never tell me anything about my case. All I'd get is "if there's anything wrong/I need anything I'll contact you". So if you can trust that advice, if you haven't been contacted I'd assume you're all good.

    For the class that just graduated, they stopped just a handful of list numbers before mine, and my contacts didn't get reference letters until just a couple months ago.

    under 350 and mine still haven't either. Everyone I've asked about it says it's no big deal.
