How Many New Yorkers Will Communist Mayor Bill DeBlasio Kill in Fires? Previously Meritocratic FDNY Now Desperately Seeks After the Most Pathetically Unfit Specimens to Pay to be “Fire Fighters”

DeBlasio isn’t hiring these people in spite of their being unfit, and in spite of that requiring his refusal to hire the fit, but because of it.

FDNY ‘babying’ cadet who can’t pass fitness tests

She walked through her running tests and got winded climbing stairs, yet a physically unfit female FDNY probie was still allowed out in the field like a normal graduate — and given a year to pass, The Post has learned.

“She’s literally the most pathetic specimen of physical fitness I’ve ever seen,” fumed an academy classmate of Choeurlyne Doirin, 39, who was given a uniform and a “light-duty” assignment even though she did not graduate on June 2 with the other 286 cadets.

Prospective firefighters are required to complete a grueling 18 weeks of academy training that includes being able to run 1¹/₂ miles in 12 minutes without gear.

But the over-the-hill Doirin failed to meet the required time, taking more than 18 minutes to huff-and-puff her way across the finish line.

“She started walking halfway through the run,” the source said. “She couldn’t even make it up the stairs to the locker rooms without taking a break.”

Doirin, a former EMT and mother of two, said her age and physical fitness had nothing to do with her abysmal performance — claiming she had been hampered by an injury she received during training.

“I was injured toward the end of the class during training,” Doirin said when reached at FDNY headquarters. “They put me on light duty until I was able to try again.

“If the rigorous training causes you to be injured, I would guess they would allow you to heal first.”

She would not say what type of injury she sustained.

Doirin said she was one of several candidates — both male and female — whose ailments prevented them from completing the course, and who were still brought aboard and given light-duty jobs.

FDNY spokesman Frank Dwyer said, “The probationary firefighter in question suffered an on-the-job injury and is currently assigned to an administrative light-duty position, which is standard FDNY protocol.”

“It’s a scam,” said a veteran FDNY source with knowledge of the admission process. “You’re getting full pay and benefits and all this extra time to prepare either physically or academically for the next test.

“You can twist your ankle and they put you on light duty.”

The woman is a probationary fire fighter at age thirty-nine. That seems to be rather old. She can be accepted at such an age?

The woman already was an EMT and came under FDNY authority. That job took requires a marked degree of strength and not merely knowledge. You have to be able to manhandle unconscious persons and assist and move those that are enfeebled and unable to move on their own.

These folks too know full well what the requirements are BEFORE they go into the program. Hire a personal trainer and have yourself ready before hand and meet all the demands of the tests before hand.

Carry one hundred fifty pounds up two flights of stairs and do so in less than a minute. Etc.
