Chief Daniel E. Flynn of the FDNY on Monday was appointed as chief fire marshal of the FDNY Bureau of Investigation at the FDNY’s headquarters in Brooklyn — a role that brings law enforcement skills into the Fire Department. Chief Flynn first worked at Ladder Co. 114 on Fourth Avenue in Sunset Park after he joined the FDNY in 2005, and he served there until his promotion to fire marshal in 2009. Five years later, he was promoted to lieutenant and worked in the 8th Division. In November of 2016, he was promoted to supervising fire marshal. In his new role, Chief Flynn oversees approximately 150 fire marshals of the BFI (Bureau of Fire Investigation) who are responsible for investigating the cause and origin of more than 7,000 fires each year in New York City.
