                        I was at the "rock" a few weeks ago and I heard that the September class is the LAST class for a while. The next class after September is supposed to be in August of '06 and that's probably the LAST class for list 2043. But you never know.....

                          What's up Muttly - good to see you posting here, even though you're on the job already!

                          Anyway - when we went to FDNY headquarters for our background investigation, our investigators said with our numbers we were looking at being either in the January 06 or May 06 classes.

                          I know how these rumors circulate, and that things change daily (especially with the city, and with elections coming up) but, I'd be kind of shocked if things slowed down that much.

                          Hope all is well with you
                          Jim

                            Chances

                            hello, my name is Matt and i just found out that i didnt pass my EMT-B national test the first time. I plan to take the test again. (until i pass it) and i was just wondering how my chances with the FDNY were without EMT. I plan to test in october 06'. My plan was to get on FDNY ems and the take the promotional to firefighter. i feel like a dipsh*t for not passing emt, but i will hopfully have my fire science degree by 06', if all goes well. so any input would be helpfull. thank you!!

                              I was thinking about doing the same thing. After you pass, call FDNY immediately to get your name on the list for the next EMS test. It will take a couple months, then if you get on there, you'll have to wait another while to take the promotional exams. I dont know how many promotional exams there are a year, so if you work as an EMT besides in FDNY then you might as well take the open competitive exam for FF in 06". good luck
