My name is Daniel Alfonso. I am a New York City fireman and I also served as a dispatcher in the Bronx for the F.D.N.Y.. I have been shooting freelance F.D.N.Y. photography for 15 years. My work has appeared in W.N.Y.F. (the official training magazine of the F.D.N.Y.), Firehouse Magazine, The New York Daily News, New York Post and a CBS special aired in 2002 titled "Rescue Company 1, A Company of Heroes". I have also published a photographic book titled "Big Apple Fire Photography".
I had a question for you, I am a College student in a Fire Hazmat class and I was wondering if you could tell me one or two simple things that have changed with the NY Fire Dept since Sept 11th with Hazmat training and/or response? Thank you it is MUCH appreciated!
Please allow me to invite you to a site designed by responders for responders... the crew that is doing it is CISM multilevel trained and are there for the guys after the bad calls. It helps the responders that do not yet have a team or would be worried that they asking for help would be seen as weakness. Please join and share it when you can. As a chaplain with over 25 years of service to fire departments I am excited with it's potential to provide support.
I was looking at your gallery on the web and saw some photos that I may purchase in the near future. Are they digital? I ask because I was wondering if you'd thought of offering any of them as B&Ws. Take care.
