I'd wait until you get through to just prepare invade the worst happens. Or buy towards the end
Anyone got called today?
May be a little late to the party, but when I was at quartermaster yesterday they strongly sudjested I purchase a black duffle bag from then and that I bring it to the orientation on Monday, we will be getting a lot of stuff. After tax it came out to just under 33 dollars. Well worth it in my opinion, reason being it must be black with no markings on it, figured I can't go wrong if I purchase the one they tell me to.
I did as well and so should everyone else.
My list number is 48* soooo close!!! Yet so far!!!!!! LOL
I guess list #60* is the next class .
Do they take card
Yes, cash and credit accepted.
Does anyone know if someone can be DQ’d on the medical due to asthma
I don't think so because in my class there were 2 people that were asthmatic. One was so asthmatic that that person had to do pt inside while we did it outside in the cold. And the other one did pt in the cold but had it's pump at all times and used it. The one that did pt inside had a doctor's note.
This is a question for those who graduated and on the job. With the turnout gear and bullet proof vest you get , when are you supposed to wear what? Does it depend on calls? I have seen video when FDNY EMTs are wearing the turnout gear, then others are wearing the vest over uniform and others just uniform. Just curious. Hopefully one day I will be wearing them myself.
I have asthma so I can personally tell you it’s not an automatic DQ, you have to get a doctors note stating it is controlled. Only reason I can see it DQing you is if it’ll interfere with your duties, don’t need a scene turning into 2 patients bc you have an asthma attack walking up two flights.
When in the academy they will teach you with calls you should be responding to in bunker gear (fire, mva, etc), and sometimes people wear it in the winter. The vest is basically just at the preference of the member, most usually just keep it with their PPE and throw it on when responding to a dangerous call.
At the end of the day it’s your equipment and there for your safety so you can wear it whenever you want.
You did the right thing and you will bring it on Tuesday when you hit Fort Totten along with your PPE bag, you will be getting a ton of books and they are HEAVY U just take a backpack on Monday to Metrotech, pens not pad and your money order for swearing in fee. Remember No collar nor cover pins are to be worn. Monday will be one longggggggggggggggggg @$$ day. then Tuesday it all starts.
Somebody at HQ mentioned the $9.00 money order for the swear in has to be from the post office?
Yea this is true
Postal, bank, check cashing place money order. No checks No cards
Not that it has to be specifically a postal Money order
