Posted @withrepost • @fdny By the time Vincent Malveaux entered the Fire Academy, he had already committed himself to saving lives and making a difference as an EMT. His plaque will hang at the Fire Academy where it will be a reminder of his Supreme Sacrafice and inspire future generations of #FDNY Probationary Firefighters. ...

“This Department is my extended family and home. My fulfillment comes from knowing that I did everything within my capacity to have a positive outcome to anyone I come across. Find something you love and you'll never work a day in your life,” said #Division8 #Paramedic Chaundel Homer, who joined our Department in 2012. “Working here has also allowed me to be a  leader and mentor to other Paramedics in the Department. The FDNY allows my love for people and patient care to grow while serving a part of  my purpose here on earth. This career allows me to give an intangible gift of compassion, caring and peace of mind to every patient. It’s a great career.” 

Becoming a Paramedic is a promotional opportunity offered in our #EMS. Take the first step today to get your #FDNY career started by applying as an #EMT or #EMSTrainee at

“Working in New York City is unmatched. With the complexity this city provides, you never know what you're going to see on a day-to-day basis,” said #Station10 #HazTac #EMT Sean Ismaili.  

Ismaili joined the Department in 2019 and he noted that working in the Haz-Tac Battalion was a career goal. 

“In the Haz-Tac Battalion, we have taken part in additional training and we have Personal Protective Equipment that specifically protects us while operating within a hazardous area during an incident,” he explained. “We also have additional protocols and medications in order to treat common chemical exposures within the city. Being qualified to respond to any chemical related incident in New York City and actually make a difference has always been the goal for me.” 

“If you plan on joining the FDNY, take advantage of the fact that every day is unknown,” he added. “Be ready to work and take pride in what you do, because the excitement this job offers is second to none.” 

Like EMT Ismaili, you can also answer the call to serve #NewYorkCity as a highly-trained #FDNY first responder. Apply today to work as an EMT or #EMSTrainee at
