Posted @withregram • @fdny “I started as a Fire Cadet in 2001. September 11, 2001 was my inspiration to join the Department. I wanted to make a difference. This has always been the plan and it is truly a special job. The brotherhood and sisterhood is real and I enjoy how we’re all there for each other. We’re just a big family. I’m looking forward to being an inspiration to others. I went from being a cadet and now I am an FDNY Captain. It’s a great thing to inspire others and I’m excited to be seen. I want everyone to know that anyone can do this if they want it bad enough,” says #FDNY Captain Darrell Couch, who was promoted today at the FDNY Officers Promotion Ceremony. ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny “I have been a Firefighter for 21 years with the Department. I come from a family where Firefighting is a way of life. My great-grandfather was on the job. I have uncles, brothers and cousins who are members of the Department as well. My father, Henry McDonald retired as a Battalion Chief and was a Firefighter for 30 years where he served at #Ladder114. I am proud to follow in my father’s footsteps. It’s an honor to be promoted to Battalion Chief. It took a lot of hard work and I look forward to passing on the values, traditions and education passed on to me. This Department does the right thing on a regular basis to help the people of the city. We have a high standard to abide to and a tremendous work ethic,” says #FDNY Battalion Chief Matthew McDonald, who was promoted today at the FDNY Officers Promotion Ceremony. ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny “I have been with the Department for 16 years as a Firefighter and prior to that I was the Assistant Clinical Director of our Counseling Services Unit (CSU) for five years. I am a Licensed Clinical social worker and still work with the CSU unit. Since joining the Department, I have worked with dedicated individuals in #Ladder44 where I started, #Ladder157 where I worked as a Lieutenant and the civilians working in CSU. I have been lucky to be surrounded by professional and dedicated individuals. I am excited for the new opportunity to become a Captain. It is bittersweet to leave my current position where I have great relationships with my colleagues, but as I move on to the new position, I look forward to the new responsibilities and developing new relationships,” says #FDNY Captain Angelo Sacco, who was promoted today at the FDNY Officers Promotion Ceremony. ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny Congratulations to #FDNY Assistant Chiefs Michael Ajello, Joseph A. Ferrante Jr., Kevin J. Brennan and Kevin F. Woods who were promoted today at the FDNY Fire Officers Promotion Ceremony. ...

"Since becoming a Firefighter in 2003, I have met some incredible people in the various houses I worked in such as Engine 219, Squad 1, and Engine 44. The Department has so many programs to become involved in and invests in its members education and professional growth. There is always room to grow and new things to learn here," said #FDNY Battalion #Chief Steven Lee, who was promoted today during our Fire Officers Promotion Ceremony. "I'm looking forward to the increased role in leadership within the Department, and overseeing more personnel and responsibilities to get everyone home safe and accomplish the mission at the same time.” ...

“As a child, I remember seeing the play, 'Annie Get Your Gun' off-Broadway and the song, 'Anything You Can Do,' by Irving Berlin has always stayed with me. I grew up admiring women who defied the odds and felt I was destined to do the same. Along with the excitement of facing unknown challenges, I became interested in joining the FDNY when I noticed there was little to no female representation. I joined the FDNY because I wanted to demonstrate to my peers that women can serve here and I wanted to inspire other women to join the FDNY," said #FDNY Lieutenant Joann Diaz, who made history today as the first Latina to be promoted to the rank of #Lieutenant during our Fire Officers Promotion Ceremony. "I have been a Firefighter for 18 years and assigned to Engine 79 my entire career. The camaraderie that I have experienced as a member of the Department and being the first Hispanic female to be promoted to Lieutenant is a dream come true. I am grateful to all the support from my family, my brothers of Engine 79/Ladder 37/Battalion 27 and mentors. I am humbled to have been promoted and I am committed, without reservation, to work tirelessly to continue the FDNY tradition of service, leadership and sacrifice.” ...
