Welcome to the site! Hey i've got a question and you look like the right person to ask. Why do they call it FDNY? Why not NYFD? Is there a name conflict or something? I'm sure I could google it and find out but why not ask. Anybody else ever wondered about that?

MMMMMMMMMMMM I am so glad you asked me that question cause we are learning the history behind FDNY and why we have that name so since I am a smart little cookie and remembers everything here is your answer.

In 1865 a state act was passed to create the Metropolitan Fire District and the Metropolitan Fire Department (MFD). The MFD lasted until 1870 when the Tweed Charter ended state control in the city. As a result, a new Board of Fire Commissioners was created and the establishment of the Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY) came into existence. The change met with a mixed reaction from the citizens, and some of the eliminated volunteers became bitter and resentful which resulted in both political battles and street fights.

Subsequently, the volunteers declared that they would accept the decision and, despite their disappointment, continue to function until properly relieved by paid units. Volunteer fire fighters were also given preference when the paid department recruited its members. With the introduction of the steam engine the need for volunteers to pump water disappeared, and the introduction of horses to draw the engines eliminated the problem of hauling fire engines by hand.

"But always remember one thing we are the FDNY firefighters of New York’s Bravest" And I am proud to be a part of the FDNY.
