The FDNY Foundation joins the FDNY in sending our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Janet Kimmerly.
Janet was the longtime Editor of WNYF Magazine, Chief Vincent Dunn’s “Battlespace” trilogy, “Firefighting with FDNY Chief Ronald R. Spadafora,” annual Medal Day Books, and countless other FDNY publications and Foundation projects over the past 23 years. She was also a former firefighter with Protection Engine Co. No. 1 in her native Port Washington, NY, serving for 32 years. In the Fall 2020 issue of WNYF, she wrote a farewell message that read in part, “the FDNY and its members will always have a place in my heart. Please stay safe and healthy. Thank you for a grand ride; it has been a privilege and an honor to serve the FDNY.” She will be missed.
