    I'm feeling the same way. I actually like the fact that we are ranked. Puts the worry behind us. What it is, is what it is. Now we just got to impress the system. I don't feel we are in competition against each other either. Thousands will be hired from our List. I look at the hiring process as an individual event on a team. No one from here, decides my fate except me and the FDNY. The first few thousand will definitely get their shot. Before the List winds down, there will be another test and another ranking. If I don't make it this time, I will try again.

    Irish, I hope you get in for the June class too and if you do, I hope you look around and see me in there too. Don't worry about the EMS people, there is nothing you can do about them. Keep training, stay focused and be ready. The nice thing about your position, you know you will be called and you know you will get your shot.

    I'm definitely more relaxed now that some sort of road map with markers is in place. I'm looking forward to getting further and further (hopefully, of course) down the trail.

    I know each event attended and passed will make me as excited as a kid on Christmas morning.
    Just a peon proby in the greatest job in the world; grinning ear to ear.

    I'm already excited about next week. Can't wait to hear what they have to say.

    Corey, the list we are talking about is for the FDNY test given January 20, 2007. It was designated as List 6019 and is comprised of everyone who passed the test. Each member was ranked by how well they scored on the test and extra credit was given for residency and military service. This list will be used over the next few years for future FDNY classes.

    Mid 300s.
    I spoke to one other guy on here who got it as well. Looks like there's no real order with CPAT, medical, background since all are pass/fail. I go to turn all this in on Feb. 13th.

    I got the packet yesterday and have to turn in everything on 2/13. Which is tight considering all the documents I have to pull together: W-2s, explanation of a ticket I got in college, transcripts, birth cert, driving abstracts from every state I've had a license (3), & etc. Also to fill out all the info in the application. But it doesn't matter-I'm thrilled to be one step closer.

    still waiting at low 1100's.. I'm thinking that they are going to process alot of people in the beginning because they don't know the fail rate yet. I'm thinking that well be going down spring/summer. JMO

Just hope I do well on the CPAT, I'm in pretty good shape but I haven't been working out like I should. That said, congrats and good luck to all.

    I got my packet from the Candidate Investigation Division today. As stated in above posts, it must be completed and brought with you to Brooklyn. I have been scheduled for an interview concerning the investigation on February 13. You have to fill out a lot of paperwork. My recommendation to everyone, start getting all your ducks in a row now. You are going to need all the information about your driving record including parking tickets. You have to furnish all information on about any arrests even if it is sealed. Also you have to furnish a notarized statement explaining the incident and an original disposition of the arrest from the court involved. Other information you should start collecting: a copy of a signed social security card, marriage certificate, divorce or separation papers, for military a copy of your DD-214, College transcripts will be mailed from your college, birth certificate, workers compensation claims, a 2"x2" picture in business attire and a complete breakdown of where you lived for the past ten years or since high school.

    I would start now instead of waiting for your packet and begin collecting the information. Seems like a lot to do. Jeez Louise, I don't think there's enough room on the form to list all my parking tickets.

    Parking tickets? Why in the world would they want those?

    edit: you'd think that after waiting the better part of a year to get us our grades that they would give us at least a month to get all of this information together. man i will be happy once all this hoop jumping is over and is just time to wait for the rock.

    Can anyone recommend a specific weight vest? I don't need a website I can handle that on my own. I've looked to see if I can find out what FDNY uses, but no luck on that front. I'm assuming the ones with the weight higher up on your body are better to train with? I'm not worried about the cpat, but I've gotta get my heat rate back in shape.(for the medical) Been a while since I've done real cardio and I'm cutting it too close for comfort atm.

    To be honest i use the X-vest.It is a vest that has 4 pouches 2front 2 back. The weight can go up to 85lbs and each bar is 1lb and you insert it into one of the slots. Pretty simple.

    I think this is the model that they actually use. But the price is ridiculously high.

    Irish, I like my V-max vest, it's a little pricey but if you are planning to regularly workout with a vest on, I think this is another of the weight vests you would consider. It's an easy addition to a lot of workout routines and these vests can load you up for a heavy duty workout. It's perhaps an overkill and you wind up paying for comfort but it's a snap to get whatever graduated weight up to the vest's limit. In my vest's case, fifty pounds (I can also easily mount another 25# like they do on the CPAT vest but I did the mod). AND as I said in another post, after I train with it, if I don't keep it, it will still be in great shape due to it's durability (another part of the cost) and I will sell it. For cardio, I don't see an easier piece of equipment to get you into a workout. Just put it on and go. Stairs not included.

    i put my list number in my signature. for those that don't know how to do it, click on user cp and signature in there. have to also edit your options so that you can see other peoples signatures. would be an easy way to know who is where without always having to remember/ask.

    Irish, sounds like a good idea. I just put mine in my signature too. If people want to know, that's where they can look to find out. It's no big deal for everyone to display it. At some point in time, we will be gone one way or the other and it will be the 1,000's, then 2,000's and so on that will have to regularly update the thread and people will want to know where they are ranked to gauge the information they are putting out.

    Default Lurking and Posting

    As a reminder to those lurking, when you finally want to start posting, you are going to have to wait a couple of days before your post is allowed to be seen. Moderators read your posts for the first few before allowing it to be seen on the Firehouse boards. It will be posted for the date/time written and may be a few pages back, SO, your question or information may not be seen.

    My suggestion, start posting on any Firehouse thread, otherwise you might be frustrated later on when you have a question or something important to say. We're all in this together.

    Good idea. By the time I found this forum I had plenty of questions and had to wait several days. Post about anything in anything a few times so you can ask when you have to.
