United Women Firefighters and The Vulcan Society host firefighter-themed festival at St. Mary’s Park
United Women Firefighters and The Vulcan Society Hosted a festival held at St. Mary’s Park in the Bronx this past Saturday, April 8, in an effort to bring more diversity to the FDNY. Participants were able to file for the exam as well as participate in a 5K race called “Are You Brave Enough” that mimicked similar obstacles that firefighters face.
Black firefighters in the FDNY have faced several challenges as the Department evolved over time.
"It was no surprise when the 12 Black firefighters who died that day didn’t seem to get the same recognition as the white firefighters who also gave their lives."
