A female FDNY recruit has graduated from the Fire Academy after her instructors fudged on her strength, agility and running requirements, insiders say.
Choeurlyne Doirin-Holder, 39, never achieved a passing score of 17 minutes and 50 seconds on the Functional Skills Test, a course of job-related tasks in full gear such as stretching hoses and dragging dummies, according to an FDNY source familiar with the training. She did not come in under 24 minutes in practice tests.
Doirin-Holder also failed to run the required 1.5 miles in 12 minutes or less — even after the running course was slashed by an estimated quarter-mile, the source said, alleging that the start and finish lines were moved to shorten the run.
She completed the abbreviated run in 12:06, the source said.
Under a recent loosening of rules ordered by FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro, probationary firefighters who fail the run can demonstrate adequate aerobic capacity on a StairMaster machine — which she was allowed to do, the source said.
The FDNY has come under fire for its lack of female firefighters, who now number 49 — less than half of 1 percent of the 10,500-person force.
