Posted @withregram • @fdny Posted @withregram • @fdnypro Today, we are sad to share news of the death of Janet Kimmerly, the longtime Editor of WNYF, Chief Vincent Dunn's “Battlespace” trilogy, “Firefighting with FDNY Chief Ronald R. Spadafora,” annual Medal Day Books, and countless other #FDNY publications over the past 23 years. She was also a former firefighter with Protection Engine Co. No. 1 in her native Port Washington, NY, serving for 32 years. In the Fall 2020 issue of WNYF, she wrote a farewell message that read in part, "the FDNY and its members will always have a place in my heart. Please stay safe and healthy. Thank you for a grand ride; it has been a privilege and an honor to serve the FDNY." ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny On Monday, April 5, #FDNY Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro appointed Daniel E. Flynn to Chief Fire Marshal of the FDNY Bureau of Fire Investigation (BFI) at FDNY Headquarters in Brooklyn. In this newly appointed role, Chief Flynn oversees approximately 150 Fire Marshals of BFI who are responsible for investigating the cause and origin of more than 7,000 fires each year in New York City. FDNY Fire Marshals are law enforcement officers with the power to arrest those who commit arson and other crimes within New York City. Investigations by Fire Marshals provide critical information used by the Department to improve the safety of FDNY members at fires and other emergencies and provide fire causes that are used to direct fire safety education efforts for the public.  

Chief Flynn joined the FDNY in 2005 and his first assignment was at Ladder Company 114 in Brooklyn. He worked there until his promotion to Fire Marshal in 2009. Five years later, he was promoted to Lieutenant and worked in the 8th Division. In November of 2016, he was promoted to Supervising Fire Marshal. Before joining FDNY, Chief Flynn served as a Police Officer for the New York City Police Department from July 1999 – May 2005.  

He has received 38 total citations for resourceful investigative work from 2010 – 2018. Most notably, the recipient of the Deputy Commissioner Christine R. Godek Medal in 2012 for his efforts in uncovering a criminal conspiracy that included arson, kidnapping, assault and robbery following a 3-alarm fire on Staten Island where 10 Firefighters had been seriously injured. That long-running investigation concluded with the incarceration of four violent felony offenders.
