I got my letter and instructions today, I wonder why it says to wear the FDNY Issued short sleeve uniform shirt instead of longsleeve shirt to orientation.

Yes I want to do my time in ems, but I am young and in no way ready or even have the desire to be a firefighter in the near future and would rather work in ambulance for a few years while I finish my education . All I did was ask some questions, I didn’t want to come off
as obnoxious, I apologize.


Don't mind that guy, he is simply displaying one of the known side effects of ems work, permanent callousness. Be careful because it can happen to you too.

I seem to have lost my wallet EMT Cert Card somehow while getting all my papers ready and in order....

I’m mailing out the replacement form to Albany today. How long does it usually take to receive the replacement card?

And would it DQ me if I don’t have the wallet card by the day I have to be at Metrotech for ID pics and employment paperwork? I do still have the paper certificate, and I would think that my EMT Card is already on file from the investigation process...

It wouldn’t DQ you. I would fax it instead of mailing it out. I faxed the forum and received my cert 4 days later from the day I faxed it.

Thank you. I tried to fax it (3 times) and was getting a “no answer/busy” error message. So instead I just went to the Post Office and had it overnighted so they’ll get it tomorrow morning.

I’ve already informed my investigator of this. He said he was going to speak to his supervisor and see if it was OK that they already have my most recent EMT card on file.
