Posted @withregram • @fdny Today the #FDNY remembers four brave members who made the Supreme Sacrifice on January 23, 2005, in two separate fires. It’s a day that’s known in the Department as “Black Sunday.” Six firefighters were battling a three-alarm fire in a four-story building in the Bronx. While searching the fourth floor for occupants believed to be trapped, the fire and extreme heat intensified, trapping the firefighters and forcing them to jump from the fourth floor window to the ground below. They all suffered critical, life-threatening injuries. Lt. Curtis Meyran of #Battalion26 and Lt. John Bellew of #Ladder27 died that day of their injuries. Lt Joseph DiBernardo of #Rescue3 endured multiple surgical procedures before he died on November 22, 2011. In a separate incident on January 23, 2005, firefighter Richard T. Sclafani of #Ladder103 died while fighting a fire in Brooklyn. Firefighter Sclafani and members of Ladder 103 were among the first to arrive on the scene of a basement fire in a two-story private dwelling. They immediately began searching for trapped occupants and for the location of the fire. During search operations, firefighter Sclafani was separated from his company. He was found minutes later unconscious, in respiratory arrest on the basement stairs. He died of his injuries that day. ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny The Department is mourning the loss of Firefighter Christopher P. Viviano, 53, from COVID-19. Firefighter Viviano was a 22-year veteran of the Department. He joined the FDNY in August 1999 and was assigned to Ladder Company 157 in Brooklyn. In his outstanding career he was cited once for bravery. “Firefighter Viviano is the 16th member of the Department to die due to COVID-19,” said Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro. “We have lost far too many incredible people like Christopher to this terrible illness. He dedicated his life to the noble mission of bravely protecting life and property in our city. Our entire Department mourns his loss.” Firefighter Viviano was a World Trade Center first responder and a veteran Firefighter whose actions saved the lives of others every day of his career. He is the second active #FDNY Firefighter to die due to COVID-19. A resident of Long Island, he is survived by his wife, their three children, his parents, and his two brothers. ...

In celebration of #NationalMentoringMonth, join us to meet members of the #FDNY Firefighter Candidate Mentorship Program. This initiative pairs Firefighter Candidates with Fire Officers or #Firefighters who serve as their Mentors throughout the hiring process. If the Mentees become Probationary Firefighters, the Mentors also provide them with guidance during the Fire Academy and the early part of their career.

Today, learn about Mentor #Engine298 #Firefighter Benjamin Chou and his Mentee #Ladder140 Firefighter Andrew Dolgin.

“I was a Mentee in the Mentorship Program as a Proby. I benefited a lot from the program during that time and I think it’s a great program,” said Chou. “Once I got the chance, I became a Junior Mentor first, and eventually leveled up to having my own Mentees as a Mentor. Andrew was my first Mentee out of five Mentees to graduate from the Fire Academy. He was very motivated and that made mentoring him easy. He really wanted to get on the job, so I tried to help him as best as I could and it went great. Being a Mentor is very rewarding. You see your Mentees in the beginning stages from the hiring process, then the Fire Academy and then to see them walk across the stage at graduation is a great feeling.”

“I was an EMT since 2016 and then I was sworn in as a Probationary Firefighter in 2018. It was helpful to have a Mentor along the way,” added Dolgin. “I had friends on the job who told me what to expect, but my Mentor would give me pointers with workouts and he provided extra reading materials that helped me in the Academy. He also offered his help anytime, was easy to communicate with and he offered a visit to his firehouse to show me what life is like once you become a Firefighter. The Mentorship Program was very valuable for me being a first-generation Firefighter. The top three things that got me through the Academy were reading, working out and communicating with my Mentor.” #FFCMP
