    At this point anything is possible. We may even get a call the same day we receive a letter to go to commissary. Or the letter itself may have a date to go to commissary.

    I did mine on Monday, October 14th as that was the first available day. 7:30 A.M. I have not heard anything.

    I was part of the 44 group that went in on the 10/10 and the dates available to us were from 10/14 - 10-25. I completed my medical on 10/15. Haven't heard anything since.

    To clarify, I passed the VISION portion that we took at the medical, what they gigged me on was that I had LASIK eye surgery 6 days prior to my medical and less than a month ago. So what my doc had to sign off on was that I am capable of wearing an SCBA unrestricted. NFPA 15** some number states that a person has to be able to wear an SCBA, with a mask pressure of 6 lbs continuous, without restrictions. After LASIK your eyes are sensitive and take a long time to heal, so the pressure from the SCBA could conflict with interocular pressure of the eyes and what not.

    So, I passed my vision, but they wanted my doc to sign off saying I can train and wear and SCBA without restrictions. Most places require at least a 6 week lag time between LASIK and starting an academy or the like. Get it now, basically the city is covering their behinds.

    I think only alternates will be called for FP and it would be last minute. Just incase people don't show up for FP or the academy. Otherwise it only makes sense to mail out 130+ letters.

    I can see FP letters but I think we will continue to get commissary calls. That's a lot in just such a short period of time. But you never know.

    Anyone going to the commissary try and find out how many people they have fitted, just flat out ask. They are only a privat contractor for the city. It would answer some questions. Thanks

    Someone posted last Friday that they were called to go in Monday. Go back a few pages to a Friday or Monday, pretty simple to figure out really.
