F or the first time in FDNY history, the Office of Recruitment and Retention launched a Physical Agility Test Preparation Program (PATPP) for EMS Candidates on March 23. Throughout that afternoon, our Headquarters in Brooklyn was bustling with Exam #9014 Candidates as part of the program’s first-ever Information Session. In addition to meeting our EMS Recruitment staff and learning more about the EMT hiring process, the candidates also completed initial fitness assessments to help get ready for this new career beneficial program. The free training, which will feature fitness workouts, will give candidates the opportunity to practice the physical exam before they complete the official test at our EMS Academy at Fort Totten in Queens.
“It is very important to gain an understanding of the techniques that are necessary to pass this exam and that’s a key goal of this training,” Director of EMS Recruitment Brandon Mahon said to attendees during the session. “We’re happy to have you here training with us and we want to help you improve your test performance and fitness level throughout the duration of this program.”
