Deep-frying turkeys could be a recipe for a #Thanksgiving tragedy. If you decide to use a turkey fryer, make sure to use the fryer outdoors and use the fryer a safe distance from flammable materials and other buildings. Do NOT use turkey fryers in a garage. NEVER let children near the fryer, even when it’s not in use, and NEVER leave the fryer unattended. Make sure the turkey is completely thawed, and do NOT overfill the fryer. Use safety goggles to protect your eyes and ALWAYS use pot holders or oven mitts when handling the fryer. Keep a fire extinguisher near the fryer. Do NOT use water to put out a grease fire.

#FDNY Probationary EMTs participate in yesterday’s Spirit Run

On Thursday, November 16, #FDNY Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro announced that First Deputy Commissioner Robert Turner will be retiring this month, ending a stellar 39-year career with the FDNY. “For the first time in more than 60 years, the FDNY won’t have a Bob Turner in the Department,” Commissioner Nigro said, explaining that Commissioner Turner’s father, also named Robert Turner, joined the FDNY in 1955 and served more than 41 years. Commissioner Turner followed his father’s footsteps and joined the Department in 1978 and, like his father, rose through the ranks as a Lieutenant, Captain and Battalion Chief. As a Chief Officer, he served as Director of the First Line Supervisor Training Program, where he oversaw the training of all new FDNY Lieutenants, along with fire officers throughout New York State. As an adjunct instructor at John Jay College, he trained fire safety directors and taught courses on emergency action plans. Commissioner Turner also has mentored numerous Firefighters and Fire Officers now serving in leadership roles in the Department. He was appointed First Deputy Commissioner in 2014. In 1985, Commissioner Turner earned one of the Department’s top medals for bravery, the Brooklyn Citizens Medal, for entering a burning apartment while off-duty and rescuing trapped occupants. “After serving the Department with honor and distinction for nearly four decades, Bob Turner is looking forward to a well-earned and much-deserved retirement, and, on behalf of everyone in the Department, we wish him the very best,” said Commissioner Nigro.

#FlashbackFriday: Congratulations to #Lieutenant Patricia Tanis, who was one of 40 #Paramedics promoted today during a special ceremony at our Training Academy on #RandallsIsland. Her husband, #FDNY #Firefighter Jean Tanis, and their children, Jeanine, Fredrick and Patrick, all came dressed for the occasion to help celebrate her career achievement. #TeamTanis was also featured on @joinfdny in February in recognition of #ValentinesDay.

“Everything I have done in my 11 year FDNY career has been to challenge myself. This promotion will allow me to have a different role and therefore new responsibilities and challenges to go along with it. As a Rescue Paramedic, I have trained a lot in Effective Communication and Mass Casualty Incident management, so I know that I am prepared and will have a solid handle on the day to day operations. I take a lot of pride in my career and I want to set an example for others and show them what FDNY EMS is made of.” -FDNY Lieutenant Moses Nelson, who was promoted today at the #FDNY EMS Officers Promotion Ceremony.

“The members in this Department respond to emergencies day in and day out, and to be a Lieutenant is not only an honor but such a meaningful opportunity because it allows me to represent this job and all the great people who came before me. As a Paramedic, I was able to meet and care for people of all backgrounds, ethnic origins, and creeds. Being able to speak a second language helped me whenever there was a communication barrier with a Chinese speaking patient. I was able to assess and administer care quickly, allowing the patient to feel reassured that they were being given the best care possible. As I begin this new role, I hope to continue the important mission and values of this Department, which is protecting the lives of New York City’s residents and visitors,” says FDNY Lieutenant Randy Li, a 7-year veteran of the Department, who was promoted today at the #FDNY EMS Officers Promotion Ceremony.
