    I'd worry about getting through the processing, passing the run, surviving the 23 week training and then getting through 6 more months of probation in your company. By that time all these questions will be answered.

    Go in sweatpants and t-shirt.. As the weather gets cooler, you can go in Long sleeve shirts.

    do yourself a favor and call the DCAS and explain to them your situation ....i called and spoke to a guy who looked me up in his system and he said i should have recieved something, so he gave me my dates and said to just go and they will have my name down on thier roster sheet .....the same crap happend to me when we were taking the written , i never recievd my card so i had to go all the way down DCAS to pick it up 2 days before the written, long story short , it was in my mailbox the next day (The day before the test) It goes to show you how They work down there! you goota watch your *****

    Hey GR6019. You have to wear long pants if you want to try out the tunnel at the CPAT orientation. They won't let you crawl in unless you have long pants. As for the training sessions at Randalls, you can wear shorts if you'd like.

Works out younger guys might want off for the weekend, Older guys with side jobs/kids might want off during middle of the week etc,
    work 2 days on - 2 days off , Work 2 nights on - 3 days off.
    If you get assigned to a house with a lot of guys, you will probably have double groups. which kills OT and when they have surplus in manpower you could be 5th man engine, or get detailed to another house that is short a man, sometimes you go out of battallion or out of borough, which I hear is good as a probie, get to work in a different area, you get treated as a guest , free meal, no chores etc but you have to get yourself there
    That about covers most of it.

    In a nutshell: two tours (not shifts)
    9x6 (9am to 6pm)
    6x9 (6pm to 9am the next day)
    Work two 9x's one or two days off
    Work two 6x's then three sometimes four days off.

    (Groups, charts, mutuals, 5 man engines, details, Roster tours, etc.) Those are all details that will definitely be covered during your probationary time.

    I will address details real quick though: Yes, you are treated as a guest when you get detailed to another house. But you are a representative of your firehouse. Don't just disappear into the tv room while you are there. Help out with whatever you can; meal, cleaning. You'll usually be shooed away, but the effort you make to help is noted. Plus the meal on a detail is usually not free.

    Sweatpants sure sound appealing today don't they? 90F

    From what I have heard you will not hear anything unless there is a problem. About what list # are you? I still haven't gotten anything for psych yet.

    For the eye exam portion, is it just the normal reading the letters off the chart with the big E on top, or is it more in depth than that?

    Thanks

    It's more than that. You put your eyes up to a pair of lenses attached to a machine and it measures depth perception while you have to read off different sets of letters and differentiate between them.

    Hey all,
    I have seen that they are starting to call for medicals for people in the 1700's. Any one in the 1800s hear anything?

    Default cpat orientation

    maples,
    they let you run through the test stage by stage if you want to , you can wear whatever you want but if you want to crawl through the tunnel you have to wear pants, they will not let you do it in shorts.
    -good luck

    Hey maples. They'll give you a chance to try out each event. You can wear shorts if you'd like, but if you want to try out the tunnel they'll require you to wear long pants. I figure they don't want anyone getting scrapes and what not and bleeding inside the tunnel.
