The FDNY Foundation joins the FDNY in sending our condolences to the family and friends of FDNY Supervising Fire Protection Inspector Edward Mungin who passed away from the coronavirus. Inspector Mungin had been with the department for 8 years. Inspector Mungin worked in the Bureau of Fire Prevention where he supervised Inspectors assigned to FDNY’s Shelter Task Force and Three Quarter Housing Task Force. He also assisted in the Health Task Force and field assessments of new and renovated buildings selected to open as shelters throughout the City.
“Fire Inspectors like Edward Mungin work tirelessly to prevent fires and other hazardous conditions, and his efforts in particular protected many of our most vulnerable New Yorkers” said Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro. “COVID-19 continues to take the lives of far too many, including those brave men and women who dedicated their lives to serving our Department and protecting this great city.”
