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!

NEW 11/7-As we all know by now, Hurricane Sandy has decimated parts of the tri state area. Many of the departments that I have photographed in shorefront communities in New York and New Jersey have suffered catastrophic damage, both to the Fire Department itself, and also to the members of those departments. for the members of FDNY, over 500 active and retired members lost their homes in the Rockaways and Staten Island alone. I have done this website for 14 years, and have had over 5 million hits just in the last year. I have never asked anything before from my viewers, but now I ask that if you enjoy the site, and are able to, please consider donating to the NYC Brotherhood Foundation. The link to their paypal site is below. 100% of the funds will go to helping get the members back on their feet. Of course, there are many other donation sites you can give to, so if you have a particular department in mind, let me know, and I will try to find a contact person there and put you in direct contact with them. thank you. The link below is for anyone who is interested in donating to the fund started for FDNY members who have suffered losses during the Hurricane. Checks or money orders can be sent to NYCFF Brotherhood PO Box 343 Putnam Valley NY 10579. You can also check them out on Facebook to see the work they are doing.
