    Agreed. I recall his one post when you said that you were going to medical and he responded something like "another F'n May newbie going for medical" and yes directed at you, but I think just more showing him being ****ed off at the process in response to your post/experience. Nobody knows you, including him, so i'm sure he's not ****ed/upset with you personally.

    There are two things that will not get you far in the fire service.......

    #1 - a sense of entitlement
    #2 - a p*ss poor attitude

    It's a good thing CFD don't do psychological evaluations. They figure if we're crazy enough to run into a fire, we would all flunk

    Nice! I assume Miss Hammond is making the calls?

    To change the subject, I dont know if I am getting ahead of myself, but I was wondering on the uniforms, the money for the uniforms do come out of our first paycheck? When I was in the navy, our first paycheck had the deductions for all of our clothing that they gave us. So I was just wondering if this worked the same way, I dont think that they would give us the clothing for free.

    Congratulations!

    I guess sitting in a room for 45 minutes and waiting for the semi-hot doctor to grab your nuts paid off

    hey guys, had my home BI check about 2 weeks ago and have yet to hear back about being scheduled for a medical, just wondering if there is anyone else in the same boat?

    CFD does not pay for their uniforms, however you pay for additional articles as you are only issued one set of them. For the academy they issue you one sweatsuit and make you buy a 2nd, b/c you will not make it 6 months with one, but your actual uniform and first sweatsuit is covered.

    2ndGen was in this boat and just showed up yesterday at medical. They questioned him as to why he was there, but ultimately he pleaded his case and they let him stay and scheduled his medical. If I were you I would call some people to find out where your file got lost, b/c once Personnel has it after you passed BI, you should be called.

    To put the timeline into perspective for you, I got called by BI last Monday (10/7) when I was in Mexico, I got back in contact with her on Tuesday and had her do my home visit that afternoon and I was contacted by Personnel (Ms. Hammond) on Wednesday saying I passed, asking me to report for medical that next day, Thurs 10/10, but I didn't get in yesterday since I was in Mexico. Hopefully that one week doesn't cost me this November class!

    Thanks Dalsh. I shot Ms. Hammond an email, something tells me I'm not going to get a response. Can someone send me the phone number to personnel?

    Personnel: 312-746-6920
    Ms. Hammond: 312-746-6971

    You honestly may be better off finding the time to go down there, but hopefully you can get through to someone on the phone, but with the calls going out today, not sure you will have much luck.
