The FDNY Foundation joins the FDNY in sending our condolences to the family and friends of FDNY Deputy Chief Inspector (DCI) Syed Rahman who passed away from the coronavirus. DCI Rahman spent 22 years with the department. DCI Rahman was responsible for the day-to-day management of a highly trained team of fire protection inspectors assigned to the Department’s Bureau of Management Analysis and Planning, Office of Internal Audit and Control. His team is responsible for conducting audits of initial inspections on potentially high-risk New York City buildings under construction, demolition or asbestos abatement (CDA).
“Deputy Chief Inspector Rahman dedicated his life to helping others through his service to the Department, and New Yorkers were safer because of his outstanding work,” said Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro. “Every day, he helped accomplish FDNY’s lifesaving mission and ensured construction, demolition, and abatement took place safely in our city. Our entire Department mourns his loss.”
