Fourteen high school students learned about a host of careers in the FDNY in April during an Afternoon of Mentoring event at the FDNY's Headquarters in Brooklyn.
Fire Commissioner Salvatore Cassano and First Deputy Commissioner Don Shacknai welcomed the students from the Urban Assembly School of Design and Construction in Manhattan, who then received career advice from Director of Grant Development Irene Sullivan, Deputy Counsel Tayo Kurzman, Fire Marshal Zachary Fletcher, Firefighter Tracey Lewis and EMT Brandon Mahon.
Urban Assembly School of Design and Construction students were all smiles after participating in an Engine Company 207 tour during the Afternoon of Mentoring program in April.
The students then participated in an Engine Company 207 Apparatus Tour, where they were given the opportunity to suit up in firefighter gear and ask firefighters questions.
The program was part of ongoing initiatives in the Department's Office of Recruitment and Diversity. For more information, please call (718) 999-FDNY.
