Recognize Your Brother

Do you work with a firefighter that was somehow overlooked for a Medal? Maybe you know of an off-duty rescue or a New York City Firefighter that epitomizes the very spirit of the FDNY? It’s very simple to nominate a Brother, and should they be chosen, you too will be invited to this wonderful event. You get to be the hero!

We call them the Bravest of the Brave!
They call it “just doing my job.”

If its a New York City Firefighters Awards Ceremony then you have to have the FDNY Emerald Society Pipe and Drum Band. They know how to start a party! Thanks, guys!

We Will Never Forget

As the rest of the country has moved on from the horrors of 9/11, our Bravest continue to battle the effects daily. Americans know that we lost 343 of our Bravest that day, but what most do not know, is that we have lost an additional 167 to date as a direct result of their heroism displayed at Ground Zero.
New York Bravest Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is on a mission to support our Bravest through their current battles.
