    Just some interesting info from the American Spectator story, titled (Justice Denied), the

    author does not speak too highly of a Ms. Loretta King from the DOJ who is actively

    involved in the Vulcans case, not surprized to see where she is coming from.

    Finally got my punk *** around to reading "Report From Engine Co. 82"

    Excellent read. Every one of you should get on that ASAP if you haven't already. I blew through it in like 4 days.....

    Great pick. Theres a few other solid books out there, but none that paint the vivid picture that Dennis Smith does in this his. IIRC, the last page was key. You either get it or you dont, and if you dont, his explanation of why people do this job was on the money.

    Another great book is 20,000 Alarms by Richard Hamilton. Hamilton recently passed away, and was the most decorated firefighter in the FDNY's history. He was a firefighter/Lt. w/ Rescue 2 among other great companies. Not sure if they still publish the book, but if you can get your hands on it...read it.

    Also check out this website:

    http://fdnysbravest.com/

    This book is not published anymore but it shows what it was really like to fight fires in those vacant tenements of Harlem and the Bronx. Companies like Engine 69/Ladder 28 ('The Harlem Hilton') among other ghetto fire companies back in the day. It must've been something rolling up to a fully involved vacant with only 2 and 2 and told to go to work and that was all you were getting on the alarm. Fighting a 3rd alarm fire with less than a full assignment. The only place now-a-days that sees an inkling of this kind of work is probably just Detroit.

    Stay safe brothers.

    Test is going to be thrown out.

    Absolutely not a single sign in the universe that bloomy (NYC) or anyone else is going to appeal any of these bs decisions. Company from the left coast is currently working on the new test. Don't know the name.

    Looks like it's over unless billionaires come out of the woodwork to take this fight up for us.

    If they went with an online exam you could find out your score on the spot. Obviously you wouldn't know your list # right away, but at least it's something....i guess.

    I can't see how it would be feasibly possible to have what will most likely be AT LEAST 40,000 people taking a computerized test at the same time. I highly doubt the city has enough resources for that.....

    You clearly have no idea what you're talking about. The city has stated that they WILL appeal. They cannot appeal until the judge issues his final order and he has NOT done this yet. Only when the process is complete can the city appeal.

    There was a merit matters meeting last night. A whopping ONE person decided to show up from the 6019 group. I think you should have been a little better represented.

    The same way they're doing the NYPD Exam right now, I would presume. The test is open all month, M-F with several times a day.

    While we're on the subject, has anyone else taken the NYPD Exam!?

    - I know, I know, it's not the job we WANT... but, you hear from all of the guys "Take every test there is!" ... So I took it - scores automatically.

    Without the residency credits and with the "proposed answer key", I scored a 90.58... not as high as I was hoping for... but not too shabby

    Anyone else take it?? How'd you score???

    I recently re-opened my case (exam's from 2007), but they mysteriously lost any record of me coming in to re-open it. So now I have to fax them my transcript and driver's license. I'm still not set on joining the department, but I figure it's better to just go through the process and then have the power to make the choice later on (assuming I pass every step).

    I firmly believe that FDNY is my calling, and part me is telling me that I will be out at the Rock training with all of you some day... Hopefully 19FDNY77's rumor comes to fruition. I'm sure everyone on here is praying every day and night. It's about time the Higher Power(s) listen(s) to our prayers...

    P.S. My list# for the NYPD is in the 20's.

    P.P.S. Our apologies for not showing up to the Merit Matters meeting last night, FDsouthbxNY. I'm sure more of us will show up to the next meeting. I'll certainly try my best (hopefully my schedule isn't all focked up. Arg...).

    that would actually work well, because if you can electronicly check off that ur a vet and a resident for extra points they could be added at the final score and then at the end of the month the tests are already graded a list is formed electronically. making it alot quicker than the grading process now, and could have a class in quicker is that correct or am i way off?

    do all city agencies award 5points to both vets and residents or was it just a way of recruiting for the fdny?

    Yeah trust me, I thought about that. Especially being that I recently took NYPD as well. The problem with doing this for FDNY would be protecting the integrity of the test. I am thinking they must change things around in the NYPD exam on certain days. Also, everybody has a different version of the exam, chosen at random. And they definitely use a different memorization portion, probably very frequently.

    With the utter insanity that FDNY has gone through with their testing, I don't see how every body can be given different versions of the test. This would cause the world to implode on itself. I can just imagine how quickly lawsuits would be filed.....

    (Yes I know, NYPD never gets sued for their testing. Trust me, I am friggin baffled at this. Their test is more difficult)

    The Vets and the Residency points were not part of the computerized test... they were on a scantron separately

    ...and not sure about whether all city agencies awards points for vets, res, sibl/fam, etc... but I believe I saw all of the above on the Police test
