The Largest FDNY Apparatus Site on the Web!
Welcome to FDNYtrucks.com™. This is the largest site on the internet devoted solely to the photography of Fire Apparatus. My name is Michael Martinelli, and I am a Fireman with the Hackensack New Jersey Fire Department. I am also one of the Staff Photographers with Fire Apparatus Journal Magazine.
On this site you will find the most complete archive of apparatus photos of the New York City Fire Department. Every First Line piece of apparatus in the department is represented here along with every Special Unit, as well as nearly every support unit the department has. Many of these are shown 2, 3 even 4 or 5 times as the companies personalize the rigs. The FDNY fleet is fluid and I try to keep up with the changes as soon as I can.
Also represented within these pages are many apparatus from areas surrounding New York City. Every county in New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania and Lower New York State are represented as well as towns in Delaware, Maryland, Connecticut, and Others. I have a particular interest in Seagrave and Mack Apparatus, so if you're in the New York Metro Area and your department has a Seagrave or Mack Fire Apparatus, which is not on these pages, E-mail me at E290L103@aol.com, and I will be more than happy to stop by and photograph the rig!
Now, for the legalese. All Photos on this site were taken by me, Michael Martinelli, and are copyright protected. Any duplication, whether in print, or on the internet is expressly prohibited. Now, with that out of the way, enjoy the site!
