Posted @withregram • @fdny On Friday, January 22, #FDNY Fire Protection Inspectors were conducting an inspection at a warehouse located at 318 Nevins Street in Brooklyn. During the inspection, they found propane cylinders stacked from floor to ceiling, and located in a refrigeration unit. There was a total of 904, 20-pound propane cylinders in the warehouse. Fire Protection Inspectors had local fire units respond, #Battalion32 #Engine239 #Engine226 #Engine 219 #Ladder105 #Ladder131 to check for gas leaks. When FDNY Fire Marshals arrived, they were met by Mr. Mohamed Mohamed who is the manager of the building. During an interview, he admitted to ordering propane tanks and selling them to another individual so that he could resell them to restaurants and businesses that need heat for outdoor dining. Mr. Mohammad was placed under arrest for reckless endangerment. ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny Today the #FDNY remembers four brave members who made the Supreme Sacrifice as a result of two separate fires, 16 years ago today, a day that has come to be known within the Department as “Black Sunday.” On January 23, 2005, six Firefighters were battling a 3-alarm fire in a four-story apartment building in the Bronx. While searching the fourth floor of the building for occupants who were believed to be trapped, the fire and extreme heat rapidly intensified, trapping the Firefighters and subsequently forcing them to jump from the fourth floor window to the ground below. As a result, they all suffered critical, life-threatening injuries. Lt. Curtis Meyran of #Battalion26 and Lt. John Bellew of #Ladder27 died that day from their injuries; and Lt. Joseph DiBernardo of #Rescue3 endured multiple surgical procedures before his death on November 22, 2011. In a separate incident that day, Firefighter Richard T. Sclafani of #Ladder103 died while fighting a fire in Brooklyn. Firefighter Sclafani and members of Ladder 103 were among the first firefighters to arrive on the scene of a basement fire in a two-story private dwelling, and they immediately began searching both for the location of the fire and any trapped occupants. During these search operations, Firefighter Sclafani became separated from his company. He was found, minutes later, unconscious and in respiratory arrest on the cellar staircase. He succumbed to his injuries that day. ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny “This is for every EMS member in this city. This past year was nothing like we’ve ever seen before, but it was exciting to see our work brought to light. It’s hard work out there and it feels great to represent the ladies and gentleman of EMS. It’s nice when your hard work is recognized,” says #FDNY Paramedic Gary Simmonds, a 33-year veteran of the Department, who received an Honorable Mention at The Frederick O’Reilly Hayes Prize, 2020 COVID-19 Response Awards for his outstanding work as an Advanced Life Support Coordinator during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Frederick O’Reilly Hayes Prize was established in 2005 and is awarded annually to individuals in New York City government who have led outstanding, high-impact project work. It honors the life and career of Fredrick O'Reilly Hayes (1923-2002), an extraordinary public servant who promoted and contributed to excellence of management in government at all levels. Hayes served as the Budget Director in New York City in the 1960s. 

FDNY Administrative Director Douglas Wilson also received an Honorable Mention for his work at the FDNY Bureau of Health Services. “I have been here for seven years and the last year was the most challenging, yet rewarding experience I’ve had here at work. I spearheaded the FDNY COVID-19 Vaccine Plan and now I am working with FDNY Incident Management Team to keep that going. It was a lot of work and it was nice to be thought of.”

Posted @withregram • @fdny “It means a lot to represent FDNY EMS after all the work our members put in over the past year. We believe in duty, tradition, and honor and this performance was for all the first responders out there, but especially our EMS brothers and sisters around the country, says #FDNY Captain and Drum Major Kevin Haugh #Station18 who along with the FDNY EMS Pipes and Drums participated in the Inaugural “Parade Across America.” ...

“I continue Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy in my career by helping others and always doing what's right. As an FDNY employee, it is part of my job to not only inspect properties for fire code compliance, but to also help the general public learn about the importance of fire and life safety, and help them understand the need for all communities to live together safely as brothers and sisters and not to perish together as fools," said Fire Alarm Unit Scheduling Supervisor John Dove, a 13-year #FDNY veteran, who also serves as the president of the FDNY African Heritage Society. #MLKDay ...

"I'm proud to continue Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy in my career because I'm helping others every day. When we help our candidates, we encourage them to stay focused and motivated to achieve their dream of working for the FDNY," said #EMT Gloria Leonard, a 33-year #FDNY veteran, who serves in our Bureau of Health Services. #MLKDay ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny Quick-thinking and courageous actions by #FDNY EMTs Joseph Cuello and Kevin Steinle from EMS #Station50 resulted in two occupants being brought to safety from their house which was on fire. 

Prior to the arrival of Fire and EMS units, EMTs Cuello and Steinle happened upon the scene of a private dwelling fire at 73-09 180 Street, Queens this afternoon where they forced their way through the front door and assisted the residents from the first floor and basement, who had no knowledge of the upper floor fire outside. The fire was extinguished and incident was placed under control with no injuries.
