FDNY Fire Officers Promoted

Hundreds of family and friends gathered on July 24 to celebrate one of the happiest days on the Department’s calendar – fire promotions.

“Each of you carries on the strong tradition of leadership that has been the hallmark of the FDNY for nearly 150 years,” Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said during the ceremony at the Christian Cultural Center.

Among the promoted members were 55 captains, 50 lieutenants and one marine pilot, representing 1,600 years of combined experience. They will be assigned to units throughout the five boroughs.

“Promotion ceremonies are healthy for the Department,” Chief of Department Edward Kilduff said. “Keep a constant mindset of readiness and make the Department better and stronger than ever before.”
