The city’s personnel agency bungled a civil service test for promotion to fire lieutenant last year, then botched its corrective action – so now it’s going to score the test for a third time, The Post has learned.

The Department of Citywide Administrative Services posted a list of 1,166 firefighters who passed the test, a major step up the career ladder at the agency.

But it wasn’t long before complaints came in that one of the multiple-choice questions had two correct answers.

So the test was re-scored — only to be messed up again with new scores that made no sense.

“This is total incompetence on the part of DCAS to have to score this three times,” fumed one firefighter who took the test.

“I don’t blame the Fire Department. They are handcuffed by what DCAS does. But when you spent two to three years studying to take a test, you expect the people running the test to also put in the same effort.”

Firefighters say they bombarded the testing agency with dozens of calls to seek another correction.

But DCAS only budged after The Post inquired about the mess.

In the first re-do, DCAS credited everyone who accurately answered the botched question, which dealt with using an elevator during a fire.

But after the revisions, many firefighters were stunned to see their scores go down.

Exam results comprised half an applicant’s score. The other half was tallied off a formula based on a firefighter’s seniority, department awards and, if applicable, military training.

When DCAS added up the scores again, it only counted the test portion without factoring in the rest of the data for all candidates.

Many outraged test-takers aired their gripes on the FDNY Rant website.

“Holy crap. I lost points and dropped 45 names,” posted one firefighter.

“How can DCAS be so incompetent in their jobs?” asked another. “It’s hard to believe.”

DCAS confirmed an internal investigation determined the mistakes were caused by human error, but declined to say whether anyone would be disciplined.

The agency said it is working to correct the issue and will publish a third civil service promotion list to fire lieutenant list by Friday, and mail individual notices to candidates early next week.

Both FDNY and DCAS said the re-scoring will not affect the promotion timetable.

An FDNY spokesman said top scorers would “likely” be notified they’re being promoted in mid-September as planned.

“This was an unusual occurrence and we apologize for any inconvenience,” said a DCAS spokesperson

Killexams : Troy faces firefighter shortage

TROY – The city has discovered that buying new fire engines and ambulances and repairing firehouses is far easier than finding the firefighters required to staff the equipment and fire stations.

The city swore in a new firefighter, Thomas Halpin, Friday morning at City Hall but won’t see him on duty for months.  The new firefighter heads off to the Albany Fire Department training academy Tuesday, then will complete his paramedic training at Hudson Valley Community College.

Halpin’s appointment leaves the city down 11 firefighters from its authorized staffing of 120 positions. With retirements, the department could be short 20 firefighters later this year, Chief Eric McMahon said.

The situation has become so serious that it led Mayor Patrick Madden in his State of the City address to say, “Departments across the country are having difficulty filling their ranks and the problem is particularly acute for those that offer emergency medical services.”

The city had required all new firefighters to be certified as paramedics before they could be hired. The city dropped that requirement and will send its newest firefighters to school to be trained as paramedics. In July 2022, U.S. senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand obtained $702,545 to pay for the paramedic training from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency's Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program.

Madden said the city fire department hopes to be able to fill its vacancies from the 140 people who have signed up to take the firefighter test on Saturday, Feb. 11. The city waived the test fee to encourage participation.

The city had expected to swear in two new firefighters Friday, but one called to say he had decided to join the Saratoga Springs Fire Department instead, McMahon said.

Officials said the city fire department’s call volume of 13,713 calls in 2022, a jump of 11 percent over 2021, and lower salaries than other departments make it difficult to compete.

TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The city of Troy is facing a shortage of firefighters, but officials are hopeful that the next firefighter test will bring them a new wave of department members.

Fire Chief Eric McMahon said his firefighters have been working a lot of overtime lately to make sure all shifts are covered. He claims they’re down 10 percent of their workforce, or 12 members. Going into the summer months, retirements are expected, which will lead to more vacancies.

“We could be down as many as 20 members by the time we start our hiring process, and that’s a scary, big number,” McMahon said.

The chief is hopeful that the big pool of people signed up to take the firefighter test on Saturday will help fill the empty spots.

“Right off the bat we’re starting with 144. We’re hoping that all 144 show up, we’re hoping that they all do well, and we have a large number of candidates to choose from,” he explained.

McMahon said many of those test takers will cross-apply in other municipalities. He praised the city administration and his own department’s members for aggressive recruitment measures and spreading the word about their need for applicants.

Killexams : Firefighter recruits sacked for cheating in exam

Nine trainee firefighters have been sacked for cheating in an exam. Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service said their actions were unacceptable and that it had acted quickly to deal with the situation.

The fire service put its training course at Earlswood Training Centre, Jersey Marine, on hold last November after allegations of cheating were made. Twelve recruits were suspended and an investigation got under way.

A fire service spokesman said: "The internal investigation has now concluded and based on the information provided and the evidence before us, the service has resolved to terminate the employment of nine individuals with immediate effect.

"As a service, we expect our staff to conduct themselves in line with our core values, which set out high levels of expected behaviour. On this occasion, those involved behaved in a manner which is not acceptable and as such, we acted promptly to bring this to an appropriate conclusion."

The training course puts recruits who have passed a selection process through their paces. The fire service's budget for 2023-24 will be £63.2 million, more than £9 million more than currently.

The above-inflation increase was approved by Mid and West Wales Fire Authority, which oversees the service, earlier this month. A report before the authority said trainee firefighters earned £24,191, as of July 2021.

Killexams : Firefighters battling massive fire in Florida

WASHINGTON, Feb. 16 (Xinhua) -- Firefighters are working to contain a massive fire in Kissimmee, in the southeastern U.S. state of Florida, on Thursday.

The fire broke out at a nursery in the early hours of Thursday, involving more than two acres worth of pallets holding plastic planters, according to emergency authorities.

The pallets at the nursery retail outlet are outdoors, and firefighters are trying to protect the outlet's building from the blaze.

The Osceola County Fire Rescue and EMS said on Thursday noon that "75 firefighters and 21 vehicles continue working to contain the fire entirely, with it expected to be fully contained in the next hour or so."

"We estimate an additional couple of hours of overhaul as there's quite a large mess of melted plastic, etc.," the agency also updated.

Video footage circulating on social media showed flames and plumes of thick, black smoke rising in the air.

Crews have established air monitoring devices and are prepared to issue evacuation orders, if necessary, officials said. No injuries have been reported so far.

The nursery is located about 21 kilometers from Walt Disney World, an entertainment resort complex near the cities of Orlando and Kissimmee. Enditem
