    Default NYPD to FDNY?

    Hey guy's, i have a few questions.
    I was wondering, if i don't get on at the age of 21, and i decide to join the NYPD. Then when i take the FDNY test again, pass it with a high score and decide to transfer over, will i be getting a rough time from the Fire Fighters, much like the same attitude toward a person who took the backdoor way?
    Also, since i'll be working for the city, and i transfer over, will i continue the same pension plan as i did for the NYPD and continue over to the FDNY?

    My dad's best friend's brother-in-law went that exact route and has told me time and time again how happy he is with the decision, and he always had wanted to become a fireman from when he was young. My cousin actually works in the same house as him and as far as i know they both get along great.

    The pension plan is the same for the cops as for the fire dept.

    Ok, that's good. It would be awesome to a ESU officer for a few years, then transfer to the FD, that would be like the ultimate resume lol.

    police and fire pay into the same state pension, so you carry over time

    you might catch some flak from some of the guys, but not the majority because you're still taking the same test as everyone else, except the EMS "promotions", which I don't even think is a bad way of coming in, except for the lower standards.... and after April 9, 2006 your time doesn't carry over... you'll start at the bottom for pay and seniority... but the pension stuff is the same.

    Yea everything is "awesome" until you get an open ccrb and that holds you up from entering the fire dept. Do some research. " Oh no the perfect plan is spoiled!!!" Yea this stuff actually happens to people. Read some other forums and you might just see how fast your plan of a sugar plum and lollipop world has reality to it.

    P.S. There is no "ultimate" resume. You really do not need one.

    looks like you would have to be in PD for a few years to get into ESU. I work with a bunch of retired guys and it takes about 5 years to get in so to do a couple years you would be at best in your late 20's


    And forget it if you tell them your planning to transfer to the FD

    lol, thank's guy's. I'm just a person that wants to work for the city in first response. I heard if i enter the Marines, and come back after my tour, it will be alot easier for me to enter the ESU. I'm still planning on taking the test when i turn 21 again, and i'm going to be in Top-Notch shape. Once my Uncle gets out of the Navy Seals, hopefully soon, he said he's going to work with me.
