    For anyone that took the medical, you go on the stepmill for 3 minutes no vest, then they give you a break 5 minutes(you relax have a cup of water), then you go back on the stepmill with the 50 pound vest on for another 5 minutes and your heartrate cannot exceed (220-age x .9)???? And all of this is done at 59 steps per minute????

    Then if you fail the heart rate you come back in 30 days to try again?? Then if you fail that you have to get some expensive special heart test done??? anyone know what that test is called??

    Also, anyone fail because they didnt meet the height and weight requirements?

    Thanks

    Thats it. If youre prepared, you wont break a sweat.

    Then if you fail the heart rate you come back in 30 days to try again?? Then if you fail that you have to get some expensive special heart test done??? anyone know what that test is called??
    I think its just a standard stress test. If it comes to this, you also have to come back to BHS, put the vest on, and get on the stairs for like 8 minutes without looking over-exerted.

    Also, anyone fail because they didnt meet the height and weight requirements?

    Thanks
    Everyone Ive seen that was overweight also failed the stairs. I guess its possible for someone to be turned away just for being too fat, but usually it comes along with something else qualitative.

    i hear everyone talking about the medical...is that all that is required of you on that day is to do the stepmill and keep your heart rate down or is there other tasks that you will have to do and pass..i guess my question is what is that day like?? and how long were you there for?

    Default medical

    The test you have to get done is a cardio stress test as SkylinePCG has stated. You have to get on a treadmill (most likely or a bike) with a 12 Lead EKG and walk on a treadmill. Every 3 minutes the treadmill increases speed and or incline. Depending on what type of test they run (the city makes you get) you will either go till exhaustion or till you reach a predetermined % of your max heart rate. When you reach that mark it is cross checked with the speed/incline of the treadmill to give you a Metts reading of your cardio endurance. The higher the number the better in shape you are and vice versa. Then when you finish the main part of the test they turn down the speed/incline and you walk on the treadmill till your heart rate goes below I think 100 (not exactly sure) and they measure that time. It tells them how quickly your heart returns to normal. This is the best test to measure your Heart and its strength.
    If you want to know more look up Cardio Stress Test most places use the Bruce Protocol if that helps.

    Thumbs up Thx Dude!

    Issues that came up:

    -Dont sign the back of the money order. In fact, dont even write on it until they tell you what to write.

    -Everyone (almost) wore a suit.

    -Dont forget anything. But if you do, theres a copy machine and a Notary Public present. Not too much ball breaking for utilizing either, at this point.

    -Yes, they really do want to see 'originals.'

    -Have breakfast; I was there six hours. No lunch breaks.

    -Factor in a few extra minutes in case the guy running your train happens to be the same trapped-in-slow-motion gent operating 4-line today, so you dont have to needlessly, and silently, flip out in your own head like I did this morning.

    -The worst part of the day is the time it takes, and thats just a necessary evil.


    Really not a stressful event guys, so dont lose sleep over it. You get like a month to put it together and theres no surprises.
    Keep us informed!

    It's definitely awesome to hear that they're kickin butt in the first couple weeks to weed out the folks that can't hack it. But, I am surprised they are tough on the class that is going through now, as they are off the old hiring list and process. Although, I understand that, since the physical test for that batch was quite a few years ago, perhaps many of the people have gotten out of shape since then.
    All probies have to do the 4 pull-ups, 30 push-ups, and 30 sit-ups straight? or do you get a break btw them? The 4 pull-ups & 30 sit-ups, will be easy but the 30 push ups without stopping might be kinda hard .... Please let me know.

I sit in the mid 300s, so I'm hoping he's right.
    That's Great news Keep it comming! You dudes RULE! and good luck

    Anyone know of any good deals for a weight vest? Those things are expensive! I'm going to start using the stepmill instead of just running all the time. My list is 17## so I figure I've got until at least the summer time before I get called for that, plenty of time just better start now.

    Good luck to everyone who has started the process and keep us informed as you go along.
    List # 17## YOu must of got a 98 or a 99 with one was it?

    6'3" and 180 means you're pretty skinny. You don't get taken off the list immediately from what the past has shown. If you fail, you go back 30 days later to try again. If you fail that you either then loose your shot or have to pay to goto a specialist and get cleared. If you prepare you'll be alright. Walk up stairs or use a stepmill and work up to 7-10mins w/50lbs and you'll be good. Also start running long slow runs of 3 or more miles. That should square you away. Good luck bro.

    Default Exam# 6019

    From the FDNY website........


    "The first candidates called to the physical test were those who appeared on the list with list numbers 1 through 1207 as of November 16, 2007, the date the list was made public."

    I read in a previous post (timpala--pg. 25) that the FDNY called an additional 200 list numbers. Does this mean that they called upto 1407 for the physical testing? Can anyone confirm this? I am list # 18**

    Yeah mike, if you fail a portion of the physical, and then fail it again, and then fail it at a specialist...I'd say it's a good chance you're gonna get taken off the list.

    But no worries man, there is nothing unbeatable here. If you're worried about the step test, start training like a madman.

    Christ, im getting LASEK next week just to make sure i dont get disqualified!

    We're all nutjobs. Never in the history of the world have dudes been so anxious to run into a burning building.

    I had to reschedule my investigation packet turn in to tomorrow, because of some family issues.(should have been almost 2 weeks ago) So, I won't be going through the med/psych anytime real soon I think. My first run through the cpat I got 8:09 and was pretty pleased with that time. I wasn't able to go last class, I guess I'll see how I do this weekend.

    How do you prove that you were working full time six months do you need to save all your pay stubs showing you did 40 hours or more?

    Do you mean like fail as in any other part? I think there are second chances for most other parts it just delays what class you enter. Is there a part you are worried about? From what the past has shown on the forum, it's all case by case.
