firsttimestep question

When a namd free equilibration job is resumed, we usually change
firsttimestep to the last time step of a previous run.

My question is: is it ok setting it to 1 and calculate the correct
timestep later by adding the last time step of the previous run?
Setting firsttimestep shouldn't affect any other physical parameters
of the simulation such as energies etc. Correct?

Thanks a lot in advance,
