    They'll build you up to running... the first or 2nd day is the first PT test... the biggest thing is the run in under 13 mins. the Pushups are at their count for a minute, situps for a minute, and 4 pullups... if you fail these - you go to remedial, which means you stay after or show up early to hit the gym for an hour a couple times a week... it's not that big of a deal and you get more exercise out of it... but it starts you off with a bad name and a black stripe on your shirt.

      Not that big of a deal huh? Well junior just wait until you have to rely on some fat bag of sh*t who didn't care enough to show up in shape for a job that presumably they would kill for. There are literally 1000s who will take your spot in a heartbeat and you don't think it is a big deal that you can't even perform those menial physical tasks on day one?

      If they weren't disciplined enough to show up on day 1 in shape and ready to go, what makes you think they will maintain their physical fitness after they are out in the field without a DI looking over them? How much do you think they care about knowing the job and being in the right place at the right time? Can they be depended on to do the absolute best?

      There was a time when there was no such thing as remedial...I wonder why that is no more?

      Not a good attitude to start out with. Try keeping your mouth shut if this is the advice you are going to spread around here.

        I have heard that they are going to hire everyone off of List #2043. Has anybody else heard this or does anybody have any more information about this?

          I don't believe that they would say anything like that. They hire what they need and thats that. I don't think that anyone other than DCAS pays much attention to what list it is. DCAS gives the list to FDNY and they just investigate and do medicals. I don't think they plan on hiring EVERYONE. They could do it, but that would be purely based on need and not a predetermined plan to "hire everyone". I hope they keep going, I need them to.

          Best of luck!

            Out of NYC area.
            I'm trying to get an idea of where I can live. Can anyone give me an idea of where to look. Im not picky, just want a place not horribly far from the Rock and in FDNY Probie price range (i.e. less than $95 a month. lol) just kidding.

            What neighborhoods should I look in?

            thanks, guys

              You do "get more exercise out of it."

                thanks, guys
                Oh here are some up and comming areas....SoBro, SpaHa, Stuyvesant Heights, Weeksville,Wingate Heights, Northern Flatlands and Southeast Queens are all nice.

                JUST KIDDING!!!!

                Do not fall for any BS from anyone, especallty realestate agents. All of the above Neighborhoods are also known as the South Bronx, Spanish Harlem, Do or Die/Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights, Flatbush, and South Jamaica, Queens....ALL ARE SH*T HOLES to the nth degree!

                There is a trend of using archaic and seldom used names for neighborhoods which are obviously not where you want to live to fool you into signing a lease in a crime infested dump. One hint...if you can see projects...don't live within 5 miles of the joint.

                Some good suggestions, Riverdale, Throngs Neck, Woodlawn in the Bronx, Marine Park, Sheepshead Bay, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst and Bay Ridge in Brooklyn, Bayside, Woodside, Astoria, Glen Oaks and the Rockaways in Queens are all nice places.

                Best of Luck

                    Does anybody know when the psych is going to be given for the guys just doing the medical now? I guess some of the information we are hearing is similar about the class after March not being until September. Another thing to consider is that the class after the March class will have some candidates from the other two lists not just #2043. When I went for my medical, I think 23 guys showed up and 3 were from the other lists (EMS) lists. So there will be spots taken up that are not from #2043 , question is just how many?

                      List 2043 has been running concurrent with two EMS lists for a while now. There are not many guys from the promo lists. It is usually not a major factor. This is nothing new.

                          ABC,
                          I know a lot of guys that stay in Astoria. It's just over the bridge from Queens. Nice short commute. But you will need at least one more room mate, probably two. And that goes for pretty much anywhere you end up staying at. No joke, rents are high and pay sucks. Start looking for a roomie.

                              I know the lists have been running together. But from what I have heard it usually accounts for a factor of around 5%. There were 3 guys EMS out of 22 or so, so that is more like 10%. I think the biggest factor will be the actual numbers of FF who retire this year. That is why the academy after March is being pushed to the Fall Sept/Oct, maybe the number of guys retiring is slowing down. I guess nobody can really predict any list or how far they will get on our list.
