    You guys are horrible at keeping OT. I hope when letters start coming you do a better job. I don't think you realize the harm you are doing yourselves in posting all this jibba jabba..

    The city might be putting about 3 more lieutenant classes through until the lt list expires next year.
    The ranks are still above max. However, the city has been under or just barely over for every tour in the past two weeks.

    Every once and a while I come back to see how you guys are doing as I was in your shoes not so long ago. And everydamn time there are some retarded posts about ridiculous rumors that are so irrelevant...It's just stupid. Stay on topic. Talk about training, letters you've gotten from the dept. phone calls with investigators, things like that. Don't worry about the mayor, don't worry about rumors. Focus on what you're trying to accomplish. Just getting to the academy isn't enough. You'll see. When guys don't show up the second day, drop out of runs the first week, pass out after pt. Don't be like them. Be ready; Fk the mayor, Fk the commish, Fk, everything. Turn yourself into a monster, and be ready for hell..

    (and for god's sake, stay on topic)

    According to a story on the NY Times web site...we stand at 11,415...almost 200 over the head count.

    One can only speculate on why they'd claim to be putting classes in later this month and early next year....

    ....Election year,
    ....Vulcan lawsuit,

    ????

    I don't want to bring everyone down but Don't get to excited about the planned classes.

    Is it true or not that there are about 900 ff's on medical leave? Anyway, after what happened to us last December we shouldn't be excited until we graduate the academy and then we can worry about being laid off next year.

    here is a list of a couple of thing i am doing to train hope this helps.

    1) built a sled out of wood with rope on the edge and made it 180 lbs use it as the dummy drag on a grass field
    2) (2X) 35lb buckets filled with rocks and weighted vest walk up and down my block about 10X's
    3) iron gym perfect for pull ups and inexpensive
    4) pyramid pushups, ex one than stand up than do two stand up three stand up etc...and than work your way back down the pyramid. (total 100 pushups)
    5) run rain or shine

    Of course i do not do all this in one day spread it out to how you want to work out. also if any one lives in the staten island area and wants to workout could always use a partner. usually workout after work about 2:30-3:00 ish, Pm me and we could set somethign up.

    SI6019 -

    Runners knee

    1. Keep icing it and ice after every run for 45 minutes

    2. Cut down on your runs for now (runners knee is aggravated when you are running more then your legs are used too). Work your way up in the runs every other day, increasing by 10% each week

    3. Stretch more before you start your run and after you run, also walk for 10 minutes before and after run

    4. When you work out, make sure to do squats and regular leg lifts (runners knee can go away with stronger quads)

    I am a runner and actually training for the ING 2009 NYC marathon and am going through the same, annoying injury.


    hope that helps

    SI6019 if the pain persists you should prob see a doctor about it, it would suck to have to defer proby school for an injury like tendonitis or something. Cross training is a good way to keep yourself safe from injury. i throw in a stair workout every few days or so to change it up from running. Keeps its fun as well.

    Anybody ever do Burpees for conditioning? I do them sometimes if i'm not in the mood to run or its really ****ty out. they're great for building up endurance and they kick your *** its awesome. def check them out if you feel like trying something new.

    The gravity of Friday's memorial ceremony(s) is still setting in for me. It was an eye-opening experience; the respect and reverence the uniform we wear gets from people who come here literally from around the world, to be here on an anniversary of 9/11.

    Of course, the treatment we- the Uniform- receives, was paid for in blood. Now in following in their footsteps- just by raising your right hand, by putting that uniform on- we are charged with assuming the responsibility to both uphold their memories, and maintain the reputation they built and traditions they lived by.

    Its no small task, but theres no way two ways about it.

    To the men who were there that day, my utmost respect.
    To those that will be there the next time, Ill be there by your side.

    Gentlemen:

    Anybody have any experience working down in PG county? Know anybody who has?

    Im on the edge of the (possible) January class, but we all know how reliable that is, and im sick of waiting. I want to start working. Thinking about selling all my crap and heading down there.

    If you have any insights, please PM me.

    [QUOTE=aal2016;1095706]Gentlemen:

    Anybody have any experience working down in PG county? Know anybody who has?

    A friend of mine worked down there for a few years but has since moved on to South Carolina. From what he told me, I would say that it is a great department with no shortage of fire. I too have considered the department, and would recommend to anyone seeking an opportunity in the fire service to give it a shot, you can always come back.

    On another note, this is my first post on this thread but I have followed it religiously since its inception. There has been a lot of great information and some not so great. I scored reasonably well on the exam (91) and received 5pts for being a veteran, which brought me to a 96, and list number 38xx. I realize that given the circumstances of the economy, I am going to be waiting a bit longer than what has been the norm.

    I guess my question to anyone out there willing to answer is: does my test score (96) reflect my list number accurately? What I am saying is, is there anyone with the same score who is lower or higher than my list position?
