FYI:

I would wonder who would want it after the recent event that occurred.
Exactly!  Add further the debacle that happened a few days ago at OEM with the unknown certain firing of its department commissioner originally by a deputy mayor while the mayor was in a meeting away from the state to the known confirmed firing of him.  Should Leonard be removed permanently from the COD position the next person would inevitably hold the position for at best 3 years [the duration left for this mayor.]  Any fire officer would be crazy to take the position with what would be an amped-up FDC who knows she got a prior COD removed.  How would that COD look at the FDC?, how would they act?, plus what thrill would bring one knowing you were elevated due to some FDC who has the backing of the mayor favoring her over the department's own cmsr. enough to allow them the COD to run the rank and file with some degree of strictness?

Quick Question Re Aides

What happens to COD Leonards Aides?

Do they drive someone else whilst he's "relieved of duties"

No one should be worried about what happens to the aides....Yeeesh.   They are FFs making an excessive salary.....they will land on their feet.  Id like to see them get sent back to the firehouse nd see if they can survive on MMOT

Not worried about them enginecap was just interested to know what happens them

In Ireland Chiefs don't have Aides and in my time following FDNY I've never seen a COD "relieved of duties" so wasn't sure what happens them 👍

"Survive on MMOT." It's a heck of a lot better than FDNY EMS pay that's for sure.

Quick Question Re Aides

Do they drive someone else whilst he's "relieved of duties"

Irish, at one time staff chief's and the COD had light duty firefighters driving them. I'm not sure if this is still the case. Many good guys (we call them 'Brother Firefighters') who suffered from serious line of duty injuries or illness were able to stay on the job by working in these assignments. It's also worth noting that some Battalion Aides as well as a Safety Battalion Aide were killed on 9/11/01 in the line of duty. A Battalion Aide was killed in the Walbaum's fire in 1978 and I'm sure there were others who made the supreme sacrifice during the long and great history of the FDNY.

Thank you 69METS for explaining that to member Irish.

I can also tell you that site member Irish comes all the way over from Ireland once a year to visit some members of this site.

He is also highly respected by many members here as well as many members of the FDNY. He has the highest respect for ALL firefighters and fire depts.

Thank you 69METS for explaining the answer to his question as well as to others who may have also wanted to know.
