Please explain for those of not on the job about the transfers.  I see these are not associated with promotions in rank/grade so are these transfers requested by the member (i.e. voluntary..selection for a SOC company, desired location, etc) or does the FDNY move folks around as a matter of need or policy (ie non-voluntary for borough staffing levels, etc.)?  Just curious.

Members transfer to units that they wish to go to for various reasons, i.e. more experience in a busy company, change from engine to truck and vice-versa, senior members looking to slow up a bit, members looking for easier commutes and a host of other reasons. If, say, a new company is formed and not enough members express a desire to go to it some unrequested transfers may be enacted by the job.

Gee, I suppose "Aarco" books, Delehanty's and self motivation don't count anymore, or am I just getting old?

MM,
Unfortunately, those are standards and ideals of the past. With a few exceptions, today's generation is the "give it to me, I'm entitled" generation....oh, I'm so sorry if that wasn't PC, but it wasn't meant to be.

  This is clearly a total insult, to the thousands of members who worked so hard and did what they had to do to pass all of those test in order get that job. "A slap in the face as I see it".

Should a doctor be able to perform surgery even though he can't pass the required test ?

Should a lawyer be able to practice law even though he can't pass the bar exam ?

Is this fair to the millions of people of New York City who depend so much on the members of the FDNY ? Is it fair to them ?

Should the visitors and commuters coming into New York City feel comfortable knowing that not all of the firefighters passed the minimum test to do their job.

And what about all those who hadn't passed the test before and were told they weren't qualified to become members of the FDNY ? Is that a slap in the face to them also ?

  I am not a citizen of NYC, but I do visit NYC often. I can only speak for myself. Do I feel comfortable about this ? Absolutely not. The same way I wouldn't feel comfortable about hiring a doctor or a lawyer who hasn't passed the basic test. 

  At some point, cities just can NOT keep lowering the standards so that everybody will be able to pass a firefighters test. If there is a problem, then this is NOT the answer to an issue that needs to be addressed in some other way.
