#Repost from @fdny: 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.

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.

#Repost from @fdny: "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.

#Repost from @fdny: "The Navy mentally prepared me for the training at the Fire Academy. I knew going in that the most important thing to remember was to keep your ears open and your mouth shut - and to learn as much as you possibly could. I was very pleased to discover how much the FDNY supports its active military members and how they help you anyway they can. Being a Firefighter is a 24/7/365 job where we constantly have to watch each other’s backs, and I am honored to stand watch.”-FDNY Probationary Firefighter and @USNavy member John Chen, #Engine15, who is seen here during his deployment to Afghanistan in 2014. Today, and every day, #FDNY honors all who have served. #VeteransDay

#Repost from @fdny: "I was in the US Army for almost 14 years and the FDNY was always very supportive of me. I’ve been deployed overseas 4 times and they stayed in contact when I was away. I always knew they were on my side. The Army physically and mentally prepared me when I decided to join the FDNY. I am able to adjust to different environments quickly, work under pressure, and easily respect the chain of command. The Army prepped me for the experiences that I would have at home in the FDNY.”- FDNY Firefighter and @usarmy Veteran Daniel Santiago, #Ladder61, seen here with his son, Daniel T. Santiago, when he was in the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps. Today, and every day, #FDNY honors all who have served. #VeteransDay

#Repost from @fdny: "The FDNY is very proud of their Veterans and always goes out of their way to make sure we’re taken care of. We as Veterans don’t seek recognition but the FDNY truly makes us a priority. The values and traditions of the U.S. Marine Corps made me who I am today and I continue to carry on those values in the FDNY, to protect and serve the people of this city and my country.” –FDNY EMT and @Marines Veteran Jessica Byers of #Station58, who was recipient of the @USNavy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal (highest non-combat medal). Today, and every day, #FDNY honors all who have served. #VeteransDay

#Repost from @fdny: "'Thank you for your service,’ is something I have heard consistently during my short time in the FDNY. I recently graduated from the Fire Academy and am honored to be featured during Veteran’s Day this year. The @uscg prepared me for the Academy in so many ways. I knew what was expected of me and as the leader of my squad, it was up to me to point my guys in the right direction and earn their trust. I will never forget before our graduation ceremony when Chief of Department Leonard shook my hand and handed me my service pin. I could tell how much he appreciates Veterans and he sets a great example for others to do the same.” -FDNY Probationary Firefighter Don Carim, Ladder 113, seen here in 2003 where he was a Coast Guardsman Manual of Arms Recipient and part of the Ceremonial Drill Team. Today, and every day, FDNY honors all who have served. #VeteransDay

#Repost from @fdny: "I was in the Air National Guard for 7 years and during that time I was deployed overseas twice. The FDNY is a para-military organization, and therefore the service prepared me for my position here in the Department. I am able to take criticism and don’t take anything personally, because I know that what I do is important and affects my coworkers and the people of New York City. The FDNY is always supporting the troops whether it’s a fundraiser or allowing members to go on leave to serve their country and it is truly appreciated.” – FDNY Probationary Firefighter and Air National Guard Veteran Julius Anglero, #Engine59. Today, and every day, #FDNY honors all who have served. #VeteransDay
