Title: FDNY History/Trivia Question 1
Post by: kfd274 on January 19, 2010, 03:34:12 PM
With the appointment of the new Fire Commissioner and the new Chief of Department, I thought I would do an FDNY Trivia Quiz about past officeholders.   This will be a six (6) part series.  I will post the question or poll and question, one question every day, and give you a chance to respond in a two day period.  Official answers will be posted  after 48 hours.

Name the men who held both positions.
