    The FDNY for the first time in its history will allow someone who failed its crucial physical-fitness test to join the Bravest, The Post has learned.
    Rebecca Wax, 33, is set to graduate Tuesday from the Fire Academy without passing the Functional Skills Training test, a grueling obstacle course of job-related tasks performed in full gear with a limited air supply, an insider has revealed.
    “They’re going to allow the first person to graduate without passing because this administration has lowered the standard,” said the insider, who is familiar with the training.
    Upon graduation, Wax would be assigned to a firehouse and tasked with the full duties of a firefighter.
    Some FDNY members are angry.

    Sounds like they lowered the standards for one female but the others are doing just fine. Not a good thing to do...

            If the need comes I would welcome a blind person in a wheelchair and hearing loss rescure me.

            To the topic.

            You don't pass the test you fail. You fail your out because in this case your a burden to others and not the full help you were hired to do. Hooters is hiring.

              I don't agree with having different (easier) standards for women.



              That said...we have a very competent female Fire Chief in San Francisco. She is currently being courted for the job of Commissioner of the London Fire Brigade.



              SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) --
              ABC7 News has learned that longtime San Francisco Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White is being courted to apply to become the London Fire Department's new chief. Only a few people knew about this, but now, she's ready to make it public. The question is will she take the job if it is offered to her?

              "When I got the phone call, I was a bit surprised and very intrigued," Hayes-White told ABC7 News.

              The call to Hayes-White came from London, England. They asked her if she would consider applying for a soon-to-be-vacant position -- chief of the London Fire Department, or as they call it, commissioner of the London Fire Brigade.

                But you applied for the firefighter position because you had no other skills and Hooters wouldn't even look at your dumpy 33 year old "saggers". Try Village Inn.

                          So she wants to go from a Gay Socialist Utopia to a hard core Communist Utopia...? I guess one who wants to move to the Left can always find accommodation somewhere...
