Member’s Night – All are welcome!
Please join us on Tuesday, November 24 at 7:00 pm for our second virtual membership program of the year. Gary Urbanowicz, Executive Director of the New York City Fire Museum will tell us about “The History of the NYC Fire Museum.” The museum traces its beginnings to 1870, it is the fourth oldest museum in Manhattan and has moved four times over those years. The museum’s collections are extraordinary and its history fascinating.

Gary is the historian of the New York Fire Department holding the honorary rank of Assistant Chief. Since 2017 he has served as Executive Director of the New York City Fire Museum.

He is the author of “Badges of the Bravest” and “The Last Alarm” and has contributed to numerous publications on the history of the FDNY. For the past six years he has taught a class on the History and Traditions of the FDNY at the Probationary Firefighters School. He is a frequent guest speaker locally, nationally and internationally.

After the tragic events of 9/11/01, Gary and his wife Nancy were on the team of writers to prepare the eulogies for the 343 NYC firefighters killed on that day. His particular area of interest is the pre-1865 volunteer era of the FDNY. He owns a 1962 FDNY Chief’s car replicating the one that he grew up with in his father’s firehouse in Brooklyn.
