    The department sets it up, you meet your mentor. Depending on the person you will either keep in contact with them, or rarely ever hear from them. My mentor is awesome. We've met up a few times, he has given me papers on truck and engine operations, I went to his firehouse and he showed me rope stuff as well as where everything is on the engine and ladder. We talk pretty often too. The only downside to our set up is that he is in Staten Island.

    Wow! Damn thats awesome dude! I think thats an awesome oppurtunity to get an insight on the job or just for general info. It does suck that yours happened to be in SI, but none the less its a good deal lol. Thanks for the info man, I appreciate it, and congradulations on getting your run letter.

    I haven't got the letter yet, just my investigator saying I will get it.

    Yeah, in my experience, the mentor program has been awesome. Its not some hand holding thing or whatever, it is just a cool thing to be able to have someone to talk about the FD, especially if you don't know anyone on the job or, if you are like me and don't want to bother your local firehouse with questions it is nice.

    Lol that's one good experience mine has been ok. Never met the guy. He no showed at the mentor meeting where every mentor went. He does text though usually few times a week. Never any info I haven't heard here, for instance he gave me the dcas number like 2 days ago but we had it posted here for like the past 2weeks. So eh, I guess some are more hands on than others

    Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, first time using the forum but have been following for quite some time now just never registered. With my list number being MUCH deeper than 700 to 900 range, (7XXX) I just have a general question was hoping someone could shed light on.

    I know the list was made available Oct. 5, 2012 from DCAS, but when does it actually expire? Its good for 4 years so Oct 5 2016? or is the life of the list good from the beginning of the first class?

    Default Post- run

    To all of you on the job, does the run letter end your relationship with your investigator (granted you pass)? I can't see what you need to contact them for after passing your run.

    So in other words, you're taking prescription pain meds without the prescription.
    Yeah. I worked for a short time with a guy who was being processed out of the job for doing the same thing.
