I never got around to introducing myself when I joined. I have been a follower of FDNY since the early 1960s and fully engaged in the fire service for the same length of time. Over the years I have visited with FDNY on many occasions and made a lot of friends ... and lost several of those friends on 9-11. I had the opportunity to work with FDNY as a consultant for 6 months the year before that sad day. I still follow FDNY closely and try to stay current with everything that is going on.

My active time in the fire service is coming up on 54 years. I started in Montreal, spent some time in College Park, Maryland; then Phoenix, Arizona; Shreveport, Louisiana; then back to Prince George’s County Maryland; and finally back to Montreal, where I am hanging in as an Assistant Chief. One of these days I might have to consider retiring.

I appreciate the site as a good source of FDNY news, especially the rapid updates.

Hey, everyone,

I am excited to have joined this site. I live in Queens and am working toward getting on the job. For as long as I can remember, all I wanted to be was a New York City firefighter. I am currently an EMT and was introduced to the site by a coworker. The depth and breadth of the knowledge here is incredible, and I want to keep learning all I can about the job.

Thanks,
OMalley

Nice to greet a fellow Italian, OMalley. :cool: o_O :rolleyes:;) P.S. I'm 3/4 Irish, 1/8 Swiss, 1/8 Alsatian. But check out the name! (the 1/8 is Italian Swiss).

Welcome Richard. I too was an auxiliary and rode with E 248 and B 41 from 1964 to 1973. Visit the company from time to time. Had lunch with the men in March, 2022.
