        You need a life outside the Fire Dept, and pretending to be a FDNY Firefighter doesnt cut it

          For those of you looking at this and thinking 'why?':
          -Trainning-
          You would be surprised how much you can learn from just being around experienced members of this field. FDNY Online strives to provide top of the line trainning opertunities for its members. We have members that specialize in everything from 'fire talk' to advanced vehicle extrication!

          -Brotherhood/Sisterhood-
          I have spent a great deal of time getting to know the members of this site, and let me tell you they are really top of the line individuals who are vast in their knowledge of fire/police/medical practices.

          -Wide range of 'things' to do-
          We offer both fire/EMS and Police subjects. We even have members doubling up that just cant decide which is the most interesting and benificial place for them to be.



          Now I am sure some of you are thinking 'why are these punk kids coming in here telling us this, and pretending to be with the FDNY.' Well, truth be told, its because we want more members. With more members we can expand our practices into other forms of emergency operations to provide as much help in understanding the fire/rescue/ems/police world as possible!
          We dont pretend to be the FDNY, though a couple of our members are with the FDNY. We simulate fire, rescue, EMS, and police calls to provide our members a look at what really happens on calls to see if they want to do this for a career, volunteer work, or even just to contribute as a civilian.

          We run this organization as a professional and educational resource for anyone looking to start a career in any of the fields mentioned numerous times in this post.

          If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to contact me through me email or send me an instant message through any of my screen names listed below.

          Sincerely,

          D. Rogers, Chief

            Masquerading as a member of the FDNY even through a website that clearly states such can still be misleading and reduce trust. But if it was clearly stated that it is just a role-playing website for fun then there would be no problems, but attempting to say that it is just a training tool is misleading. Besides the firehouse and iacoj forums are a more widely trusted source of tips and advice.

            Just my .02 cents.

                Actually, if you want to "play" FDNY, then this is the EXACT site you need to go to. Apply for FDNY if you want a CAREER in the fire service. I think this site offers a little fun for someone who is a fire buff, or really interested in fire service. I had no clue anything like this even exsisted until I checked out the site. To all the naysayers.............It's not hurting you one bit.

                  How are you going to "run calls" as an "online fire department" ? What value is reading a bunch of text in a silly chat room going to have when it comes to real world training? How will this teach your members to recognize smoke conditions, experience the heat of making a push down a hallway to the source of fire, feeling the tool reaction as you're spreading doors on a crushed car?

                  You can "roleplay" all you want, but to make it seem like it's "valuable" is a joke. When your members are 2nd year, and 3rd year Explorers that are wanting to be Captains and Chiefs... seems a little weird. The resumes they post to get a position are jokes. It's roleplay, not training.

                  Also, who are these "FDNY members" you speak of? I can't imagine someone on the job in NYC wanting to babysit a bunch of Explorers claiming to be "FDNYPD" or whatever you're calling your "joint public safety department" on the internet.

                    This is a concept that is hard to understand for most people, I realize that. To understand how this works and the values that can be learned through this takes time.

                    We have members that are fire explorers, career firefighters, career fire chiefs, and members that dont have any actual fire or police experience.

                    Personally, I am second in command at my real life station.

                    Our ranking system, while it may seem wierd having younger people high in the leadership system, is your basic Administrator, Moderator, Member system, only we use fire and police ranks rather than those names.

                    FDNY Online, NYPD Online, and NYJDPS are in no way affiliated with any fire department, police department, public safety department, or EMS department.

                    Some could look at the firehouse forums and ours and see vast similarities. We are both here to exchange valuble information with our members. We are both here to provide trainning information from experienced members of this profession, and we are both here to give memebers and future members of this profession a place to discuss the fire service and learn the fundimentals of it.

                    Yeah, I will definetly give you the fact that their are some parts fo the fire service that are not able to be taught in a forum, chat room, or even a class room, but does that apply to everything? Definetly not. Here are some examples of things that can be learned to a functional level in a forum or chatroom:
                    Radio operations
                    Unit jobs(such as ladders, engines, rescues, ect.)
                    Ranks
                    Chain of command
                    ICS
                    Legal and Ethics
                    And many more


                    Keep in mind while viewing what members post, they are hear to learn, not to be perfect.

                    This form of learning is by far not right for everybody, and I am not in any way trying to say that it is.

                    We state frequently that the trainning we do is not in to be assumed in any way that they are recieving certification, licensure, or being trainned to a level of compitency, as they are NOT. You might even want to think of this as a form of study.

                    Anyway, join if you want, but keep in mind this is designed for people that have NO experience in firefighting, EMS, or police services, not for people that are seasoned veterans of said services, nor is it to be used for anything other than that stated in the forum.

                      This is something I would have did 6 years ago. This is pretty childish. And for legal issues, you might want to change it to NYFD and PDNY. You shouldn't make something up "that is is no way affliliated with" using their name.
                      I could care less if their are actually FDNY guys on their. Grow Up! That's something like 5th graders do... probably something I would have done when I was 9 or 10. Not when I'm 16 or for other people's cases over 21 years old. That's pretty sad if you're over 21 and doing something like that.
                      It's like playing Cops and Robbers when your 18.

                      GROW UP!

                        Maybe I just don't get it... So you have like 10 guys but like 50 staff positions in Fire, Police, and EMS? Maybe you should start off with like 3 cops, a couple engines, and an ambulance and grow from there? Everyone there is a Captain or higher! Who's going to be doing all the work while the brass drinks their coffee? I guess that's not really an issue since there's no work to be done on the internet...

                        If you want to run scenarios, get with your fellow explorers (assuming you are mostly explorers) and go through things that are likely to happen where YOU live using YOUR SOPs. If you want to learn how to write reports, sit down with REAL firefighters and ask them to go through it with you. This will do nothing to prepare you for real life, you'll just think you know everything which is more dangerous than knowing nothing!

                        Also, I hope the images you use on your forum were taken by yourselves, you got permission for their use, or are public domain... something a webmaster has to be concerned about.

                            Yeah so did I.... I think utilizing FDNY, NYPD, and the EMS was a bit bold. Why couldn't it be made a smaller, Unknown type name like USA City or Metropolitian Fire/Rescue or something like that ? FDNY ? Come on really. Everybody wants to be on the FDNY, Some think they are, while others claim to be just to say so.

                            Hey, good luck with your fourm but my opinion is naaa I won't be participating.
