-- The FDNY has ordered firefighters to not hang pictures of
President-elect Donald Trump in firehouses or on their trucks, angering
some members of the department.
“Only [the] FDNY wouldn’t want the democratically elected president
of America hanging in a firehouse,” said one firefighter, who asked to
“The firehouse is supposed to be a symbol of America. That’s hard to believe when you can’t post a picture of the president.”
Department brass sent out a memo this week urging New York City’s
Bravest to “remain out of the political scene and out of the political
field” amid the widely divided opinions sparked by Trump’s election a
week ago, according to officials.
An FDNY source told The Post that the memo was triggered by
complaints the department received about a firetruck in Brooklyn —
Engine 276 — that was driving around with a Trump mask on its grille.
