There’s a new episode of the excellent Gett’n Salty Podcast, and this one is all about the FDNY’s Fire Bell Club. Check it out, it’s very informative and helps those unfamiliar with the FBC, to understand the integral role they play within and supporting the FDNY.
Established in February 1939, the Fire Bell Club is an organization of FDNY members (active & retired) as well as individuals interested in the fire service, its current operations, and the preservation of its history. Members come from all walks of life, including fire service professionals. The Club and the FDNY enjoy a unique relationship of friendship and support. Club members are regularly involved with public relations services for the FDNY, attend Department functions, and contribute a vast amount of time and effort to various Department events, the Fire Museum and Fire Prevention activities. The club sponsors two annual scholarships awarded to a 5th Grade and above Firefighter or Fire Officer who has been accepted at or is attending an accredited institution of higher learning. The Fire Bell Club Medal has been presented on Medal Day since 1984. Many, both in and outside the Department, consider the Club’s monthly newsletter to be one of the most current and informative sources of information pertaining to the FDNY.
