Posted @withregram • @fdny FDNY OPEN HOUSES CANCELED Due to the situation in the Middle East, New York City is expecting an increase in protest activity.
FDNY’s priority is effectively serving the public. Large protests may impede response, which can increase response times.

In an abundance of caution, we are moving our Open Houses event this weekend online to ensure the premium response availability of our units.

Virtual Open Houses will be online beginning Saturday October 14 at 11:00am. FDNY is committed to giving New Yorkers options for learning about fire safety. Visit for our Virtual Open House and more information.

Posted @withregram • @fdny In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, we’re highlighting Luis Martinez, Chief of Staff to Fire Commissioner Laura Kavanagh. Prior to his appointment, he was a lieutenant with the NYPD. There, he spent 18 years in various roles, including Patrol, Counterterrorism, and working as a senior policy advisor. He says that pedigree has made the FDNY an unlikely home for him, but one he loves just the same.

“I see myself as a public servant. I don’t draw distinctions between agencies that do tremendous things. The NYPD does a very specific part of public safety, but so does the FDNY,” said Martinez. “I am here with 100% commitment to the members in the field, and that’s what matters to me. I want to keep our members safe. And anything I can do to contribute to that to me is a tremendous honor.”

As Chief of Staff, Martinez acts as the Fire Commissioner’s advisor on policy matters, strategic initiatives, and the goals of the Department. He is the liaison between the FDNY and City Hall, and he ensures objectives are aligned. The son of Dominican parents, he says public service is the shared mission of his family. Martinez’s father worked for the NYC Transit Authority for 30 years.

“Service is just part of where I come from. I think there is no better work than being able to help a citizen, someone you don’t even know,” said Martinez.
