    Okay, I abbreviated it somewhat. But this is what is gone by at BHS, based on a MAX 20% Body Fat for a given height in inches:
    Height Weight
    66" 196.8
    67 201.6
    68 206.4
    69 211.2
    70 216.0
    71 220.8
    72 225.6
    73 230.4
    74 236.4
    75 242.4
    76 248.4

    If you are over these numbers, you are considered overweight and will need to be under in order to pass the medical.

    In other news, the Lt. at the Rock doing the CPAT prep classes said that due to the drop-off in attendance, he's lifting the 'only come to the day/time youre scheduled for' rule, and encouraging people to come whenever and as often as they want.

    He also said that once people start passing the test, hes going to separate them and start training for the academy.

    -Is it safe to say that this "drop off" in attendance is another confirming fact that this first 6019 class will roll through a decent amount of #'s ? The FDNY website confirms they have called up to #1207. Wondering how deep they will go for the first class

    Is this "drop off" in attendence at the cpat practices another confirming fact that the first class of list 6019 will roll through a decent amount of #'s

    The FDNY site says that they have called up to #1207.

    Wondering how deep they will need to go for this first class

    This is great. If you think you're already in shape for Probie School, you are mistaken. There will be some who aren't too challenged, but the majority will be. Take advantage of this. I don't know how it will be run, but if you're lucky, it'll be like a regular PT session.

    Hey Irish I went in about getting lasik done and they told me that I would need the PRK surgery also. I was wondering where you went and how much did they quote you at? Because my quote was for $4,000 was just curious if this was alot or about right. O yeah and how it all worked out? being you said you was going in the day after you posted.

    Sounds like a rumor since I have searched all over and haven't seen or heard about it. I went to the Daily News, NY Post, silive.come and Wcbstv.com oh yeah and I even googled it and nothing. If anything fdny guys who look at this thread and remain quiet will chime in.

    Jimmy, you can only go to the practice sessions at the rock if they have gotten up to your list#, i think they called up to 1207 for the prep calasses , but they are calling more and more because the people that were in the first prep classes are taking their physicals now and in the next few weeks to into the month of may. When you go to the rock you need a fdny recruitment postcard card to get into the gate and then you have to sign in with picture id and they check your name from a list

I'm sure it's kinda tuff but I wan't to hear some details from somebody that did it recently (from the last list/test ) or somebody that's doing it now. Thx in advance.

    I went to an eye surgeon upstate in fishkill. Dr. Eric Brocks at Hudson Valley Eye Surgeons. I paid 4800 for my surgery for both eyes, they knocked 200bucks off for me for saying I was doing it for FDNY. Talk to them about it though, it's not an automatic thing.

    About the suregery itself. PRK is the only eye surgery that the military allows. Instrad of cutting a flap like they do in lasik they remove the surface of your eye with a brush thing. It's really not bad at all. Just a very very weird feeling, becuase you're not used to anything like that. The whole procedure from the time I laid down in the chair to when I got up couldn't have been more than 10 minutes. The laser part took me about 15 seconds per eye. ( I got em both in the same day even though they don't recommend it) Today I went in for my 24 hour post op. and had another eye test. I have BETTER than 20/20 vision already. And with PRK your vision continues to get better for about 2-3 weeks. I can see better than I could with my contacts. Obviously by typing this long post you can see I'm ex tactic with the results.
    4000 is about th tange you should be in for both eyes yes. Ask them how often the get their **** calibrated, and I don't mean right before every patient, which is prob what they are gonna say. Cheaper places only get the equipment checked once in a while, while the good places do it often( the process is very expensive).

    Well all said and told, I'd reccomend PRK to everyone that has vision problems, it was simple, doesn't hurt at all and best of all you can finally see like you were supposed to. Feel free to pm me if anyone has any more questions

    The classes start at 6 during the week, mon-thurs. ON sat and sun, the morning class starts at 8, I think the afternoon is at 1. I go on saturday mornings.

    Don't worry or listen to ANY rumors regarding a freeze. If your number has potential to be in that first class, you best be working your *** of to be ready. F-ck hearsay, and bust your @ss for the academy.

    Interesting article I found ,The first class might not be half ems promo half 6019 as others have said, Look what FDNY has done in the past. 150 + EMT's in one shot would be a big blow to staffing.

    FDNY'S Medics Burned in Bid to Attend Fire Academy

    Posted: Monday, September 26, 2005
    Updated: May 9th, 2006 07:15 PM EDT

    A "severe staffing crisis" in the Fire Department's EMT division has cost a group of medics their promotions to the Fire Academy, according to their union - and they are not happy about it.

    A group of 26 EMTs were slated to start at the academy tomorrow, but received word from their union Friday night that their promotions had gone up in smoke.

    "We got a call out of the blue saying, 'Sorry, but you're not going to start at the academy after all,' " said one furious EMT, who has been waiting for 13 years to become a firefighter.

    "This is my dream. I took the test. I took the physical. I resigned as an EMT. And now I have to go back?"

    Bob Ungar, a representative of District Council 37's Local 2507 Uniformed EMTs and Paramedics Union, said the pending closing of St. Mary's Hospital in Brooklyn - coupled with a huge number of EMTs being promoted to the academy - has caused a "severe shortage" of "men on the street."

    "This is a tough thing, but the department planned to promote too many people," he said.

    "Our union has been working with the Fire Department over the last week trying to get this crisis resolved, and they've taken several steps, including sending these 26 people back to EMT."

    Ungar also said an overtime cap has been removed from the EMT division, allowing "personnel who want to work to fill in those empty seats."

    EMTs who are affiliated with the FDNY are allowed to take a promotion test after a year on the job for a shot at being a firefighter.

    An FDNY spokesman could not confirm negotiations with the union, but did confirm that 26 EMTs were being sent back.

    He said the EMTs had not completed their one-year probation period - but two angry EMTs told The Post that's not true.

    "I have worked so hard for this every day and then it's just taken away from me," said a furious EMT. "It's like getting a car and being all excited, and then having the dealership say, sorry, we have to take that back."

    Patrick Bahnken, president of Local 2507, admitted that the move is "regrettable" and said, "It's hard that these guys are caught in the middle."

    The 26 EMTs are supposed to report to Fort Totten in Queens this week to return their firefighter equipment.

    Although many medics were told they'll be in the January Fire Academy class, one furious EMT said, "How do we know this won't happen again? It's just absolutely, positively wrong."
