FDNY Discards Physical Standards to Accept Female Recruit

The lunacy doesn’t apply only police officers. Under radical egalitarianism, being female is the only qualification you need to be a firefighter:

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.

That means that very possibly an innocent person will be sacrificed so that Wax and the moonbats in charge can indulge in the fantasy that she is qualified to be a firefighter.

“We’re being asked to go into a fire with someone who isn’t 100 percent qualified,” the source said. “Our job is a team effort. If there’s a weak link in the chain, either civilians or our members can die.”

Wax’s graduation comes as … the department is under pressure by the de Blasio administration to hire more women.

As liberals prove frequently, particularly in matters of gender and race, it is easy to ignore reality. But reality is never going to ignore you.

Being nonwhite is also highly likely to get the otherwise unqualified into the FDNY. If you are going to get caught in a burning building, make sure it isn’t in the moonbat dystopia of New York.

Too bad Ms. Wax doesn’t demand to be an NFL quarterback instead. At least that wouldn’t endanger lives.

    God forbid there is another 9/11. The firefighters did a great job last time, but probably no more.

    I can see the headline now…”Wax melts under heat.”

    Civilians and her fellow firefighters aren’t the only ones she is placing at risk. She could well become the first woman firefighter in NYC to pay the ultimate price.

    She’ll be soooorrrreeee! She has marked herself as a Second Class Firefighter, one who cannot do the same job as a man. Whether that is true or not is irrelevant. They will shit all over her until she proves herself, and that will be twice as hard as for anyone else.

    Seen it; she will automatically expect the MEN to pick up her slack. At the same time she will quibble about how they don’t treat her as a team member and discriminate against her, because she is not a male you see, by looking down on her. She will never get that the crew is just as tough and demanding on each other when it comes to carrying their own load…

    You are correct. They are doing her no favors. My husband went through that grueling test; it was extremely intense, like a warzone. You have to have that experience under your belt to be prepared for the real thing.

    I once had to work a beat with a badge heavy female who would stir up many of her contacts with her angry mouth. Then she would expect me to help clean up her mess. Told he the next time she did that I was going to leave or not show to begin with so she could deal with the angry citizen all by herself…that got me a talking to.

    Some people don’t seem to understand that standards are there for a reason. We don’t let people with chronic depression become commercial airline pilots for a good reason…they might fly a plane into a mountainside. We don’t let people lacking physical strength become firemen because they can’t haul heavy hoses around, or haul people out of burning buildings if needed.

    We aren’t just trying to be mean.

    And we shouldn’t let people with communist mentors become president, regardless of the color of their skin.

    The people posting here are a bunch of cisgender, misogynistic, sexist racists. Women must be paid exactly the same as men for equal work. If these patriarchal male firefighters can run faster, lift more weight, endure more heat and carry more gear, then they are just showing their insensitivity and male gender bias.

    A man abler than his sisters insults them by implication. Therefore, not only must standards be relaxed, but men must be forced to perform down TO those lower standards to ensure that everyone is getting equal pay for equal work. If people burn to death and property is lost, it’s the price we all must pay, the sacrifice we all must make in order to ensure that everyone is equal, that social justice prevails and that the highest we can rise is to the level of the least among us.

    Nothing else would be fair.

    Yep, they want to be paid for equal work, but if they can’t perform that work, they should be held to a lower standard.
    There may be a flaw in that reasoning, I just can’t put my finger on it . . .

    That’s just racist, er ah, I mean homophobic, um, eh, oh, SEXIST! There, sorry, I struggle to keep up with the latest cultural Marxist insults.
    Notice how they demand the same pay for the same work, but if the work is physically beyond their capabilities, they just lower the standard. As a white male in my 60’s, I can no longer pass that test, so I think I’ll apply, then sue for age discrimination when I fail. Wait, then I would have to live in NY – Never mind.

    How unreasonable of the FDNY to expect a 130lb woman to carry 90lbs of gear, 69% of her body weight. The military load outs typically run over 75% of the body weight of the soldier, sometimes over 90%. The difference being that a fireman must carry the equipment PLUS be able to carry an injured fireman or victim out of the burning building, thereby easily exceeding 100% of their body weight. Soldiers on the battlefield must also occasionally drag or carry another out of the line of fire but battles happen far less frequently than fires.
    Someone is going to get killed because of this but no matter, the media will not report on that because it does not fit the progressive agenda.

    I took tests for local FD, passed, at #14 in class, but was refused employment because of my lack of political connections. They ended up with somebody way down on the list because he was “connected” and on the job less than two years got “hurt” and ending up suing the FD for a few million dollars because he was not properly trained… Karma is a wonderful thing…
