Acting Fire Commissioner Laura Kavanagh today appointed John J. Hodgens as Chief of Department, the highest-ranking uniformed position in the FDNY, and John M. Esposito as Chief of Fire Operations.
When escaping a fire in your apartment, CLOSE THE DOOR as you make your exit. Closing the door saves lives.
It is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.
Every day the members of our Department bravely protect life and property in the world’s greatest city.
Our Department not only responds to emergencies, we help prevent them by getting out into the community and promoting our many educational programs.
Acting Fire Commissioner
