    Now, how is it he was registered for the test in his Sept. '06 post, which would mean he was planning on taking the next test, which the list for isnt even out yet? He is clearly not on this job.

    And there are plenty of guys actually on the job, that actually suffered burns, that would disagree with the glory he seems to find in "burning your ears off" in a Brooklyn "taxpayer".

    Ok. No more FDNY guys are allowed to post. Or else we may be accused of "ganging up" on someone again.

    If you are looking for people to look up to you - or looking for glory,
    then get a cape.

    If you are looking for a career, and can do the job, who cares what some
    limpd**k says about how you did it, as long as you did it by the book?

    Personally, if you can put up with NYC EMS for a couple of years, being treated like a stepchild, you deserve a boost!

    So if you score a 100 on the test, and a minority scores a 66, and he/she gets hired before you, you are ok with it? Because in some places, that is, and has been in the past, by the book.

    Whether its by the book or not, its a scumbag move, especially in the past when one could FAIL 2 events on the physical, simply pass the written with a score of 70, and get hired before someone who got 100 and 100, and who worked hard to get to that point.

    It says a lot about someone's character when they write off anothers opinion and calls guys limpd*cks. Its people with this attitude, laziness, and thinking that the city owes them something that are infesting firehouses.

    You deserve nothing, you earn this job! Take the test, compete with everyone else, wait for your list number to be reached, get on the job, shut your mouth, open your ears, and give it your all...thats how you earn respect!

    Other than that...earn a living however you want before this job....nobody cares what your "backround" is. That being said....I would take a former Iron Worker, or tradesman over an EMS guy or firefighter from ___________ville
    any day. From what I've seen, they end up making the better firefighters. That is not all-inclusive FFred,but just a general observation.

    .
    You are right - its a bad situation. Should not happen that way. I will **** and moan at my lawmakers for making it happen that way. Durn straight. Never should be that way.

    I am not going to fault the guy who got the job that way, I will wait and see how he does the job. Its not his fault that the system sucks.

    Anyone who is going to give the guy crap because he played by the book and got hired that way, instead of putting the blame where it belongs, with the lawmakers who made it that way, IMHO would qualify as a limpd**k.

    Thats simply my opinion. (cue background music, Star Spangled Banner) you can have yours, I can have mine, and we can both be wrong.

    Come to a town that never had a great fire. Come to Boston because there is still plenty left.

    Thats simply my opinion. (cue background music, Star Spangled Banner) you can have yours, I can have mine, and we can both be wrong.
    Did I miss something? What company do you work in LVFD? I figure it isn't in any of the 5 boroughs so perhaps you don't really know what the hell you are talking about.

    In my view the only limpd*ck here is the volly from Upperbumf*ck nowhere putting his two cents into something he really doesn't even begin to understand.

    It isn't his fault the system was set up to allow lesser qualified people to slip on to the job...that is why there is an open competitive exam where people of sound character can take the exam against all others and prove that he is really the best man for the job.

    Someone who takes backdoors and shortcuts in life will continue to do so throughout his career and that isn't someone I want to work with.

    People who are in collusion with lawmakers (certain "protected classes" and their afilated groups and those who participate in their charades) are just as guilty and culpable as the politicians themselves who are pandering for votes with those who want something for nothing.

    I want nothing to do with any of them...perhaps we can have our backdoor loosers,the ones who fail the exam or drop out of the accademy after barely passing the exam(their fail-rate is extreemly high for obvious reasons) come sign up at the LVFD...you apparently see nothing wrong with them.

    Where can we direct them in aquiring applications?

    Yep, you figure right. I don't work for any NY Fire or EMS agency.

    Now.

    Used to. I see from your profile you have 10 years in fire/ems. I stopped
    working in NY 5 years before you even got on the job. One could say they
    must have dummied down the test after I left - so that you could get on....

    Regardless, we both have our opinions. Nothing I do is going to change
    yours, so have a great day.

    First I don't know why that is listed...It has said that since day one when I joined the forums...Once I tried to change it or remove it before...but for some reason...it gives me an error message or it simply doesn't change...also November 30th isn't my Birthday...not sure why that is listed either...I never put it there. Regarless...it isn't accurate and I don't put much faith in that part of the database.

    Second...are you telling us you worked here? Dumbed down what test? You took, passed and were hired by my dept? Your comments seem to infer that I passed a weaker version of an exam that you were hired off of? What was your exam number? Where were you assigned when you worked here? Borough is fine.

    In reality you probably worked for Haztola or the old EMS...either way...you don't know the first thing about what you are talking about.

    BTW-Where can we have our failures send their applications? What is your LVFD Bureau of Personel's address? I'm sure you'll want all these hairbags signing up for your job as well.

    The housing market is HORRIBLE in the New York City Metro Area.

    I'm about 40 miles west in NJ and it's so freaking expensive. I have a smaller home, in the 10 years I've owned it, it has almost tripled in value. Great for me, bad for someone starting out. Also, my property taxes on my smaller home is $5100/year... car insurance on 2 cars is $1800/year... that's only the start.

    Someone else mentioned Cal Fire. Seems like a good move, big department, nice state, lots of opportunity...

    If I was younger and single, that is where I would go too.
    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.
