    Just hit "free" and it will stream. You don't have to download anything. I think I may watch it again myself...

    Can the city run a new promo even though the current promo list is essentially exhausted? And also with a current OC list ?

    Think we will get notices for psych by end of November or December?

    Or are most of us just going to get packets and CPat and take psych and medical in 2015?

    For the people who got the CPAT test release. I just want to make sure you only need a doctor to sign it if you do not believe you are medically fit?

    It is confusing because it says you don't need it signed unless you have medical condition or don't believe you are medically fit to take the test but on another line it states the following.

    "I have examined (Candidates Name) and that there is no medical contraindication to this candidate taking the firefighter CPAT test.

    The line above is confusing because to me it reads that a physician needs to sign it to state there I no medical "contraindication", but why would you need that if you only need it signed if you believe you have a medical issue. Isn't that a contradiction, LOL.

    Good thing I'm trying to be a firefighter and no a lawyer.


    I just want to make sure here that nothing needs to be signed.

    Interested in seeing how I fare at the physical preparedness assessment session this Saturday at the Rock, more looking forward to the actual PT session the following Saturday but it's awsome that they are providing both classes. And the countdown until run-letters continues...

    That's pretty great.
    I'm at like 2.5 at like an 8:20 pace for now, hope to get up to around 5 for 8 min per mile by the academy (hoping for July 15)

    Some of these chapters, man. Jesus. The "Foam" chapter is like trying to read the terms and conditions page on software upgrades and the such that literally everybody in the world just hits agree without reading.

    I think it boils down to the first line: "To be signed by a physician if you have any of the conditions listed on the reverse side or if you believe you may not be physically or medically fit to take the test."

    So if you don't have any of the listed conditions, I don't think you need to get it signed by a physician. I think the other line you're talking about with the "no medical contraindication" just means that the physician is stating that you don't have any medical conditions that should prevent you from taking the test.

    Just my interpretation... If anyone disagrees, please share, cause I don't think any of us want to show up and get turned away cause we didn't get something filled out.

    To whoever asked: The promo talk comes from someone (I believe OTJ) who said a somewhat reliable person at HQ mentioned running 15 week classes (so they could do 3 a year) and a new promo exam.

    1.5m in 10:40 before academy, 10:00 at the end of the academy
    5k times <8min/mile

    Ran my first half marathon today at a 9min/mile pace, which is pretty good for a first time. Would be better if I lost 20# and did more tempo/speed training.

    Literally everything in the proby book is an abbreviated version of the real books. If you think it's bad now just wait.

    Meaning the chapters that they give us access to online now are abbreviated versions of the books you get when/if you get into the academy? Or it is all abbreviated versions of the actual books when you're through the academy and on the job?

    Just to clarify for my dumb *** if you could...

    The probie books are basically a summary of the actual department books relating to procedures/tactics/etc.

    No problem. Also in regards to your reading of Foam. The only way I can remember the settings on the eductor for the alcohol resistant foam (which can be used for either alcohol or hydrocarbon fuels) is beer comes in 6 packs. 6 pack = 6%, you set it to 6% for alcohol, 3% for hydrocarbon.

    That's actually really helpful. Little tricks like that I'm thinking are key in trying to retain this stuff. Gonna try and work on that in general.


    Do you even know about the Venturi Effect bro?? *mean mugs you*

    this is a great tool. you can pay less attention to the splits or your phone etc - i like to run with nothing but my front door key

    http://www.arkansasrunner.com/calcul...minpermile.htm

    also everyone knows about this, right? you can make up a route as you see fit, or if you follow prescribed running regimens they usually have one day where yo run for like 40 mins etc not concerned with distance... well you can use this tool after your run

    I use map pedometer to map out long runs before doing them. For running I have a garmin gps watch to record it, and carry my phone (for tunes), money, id, and metro card in an arm band.
