NYC’s fire department has forbidden firehouses from displaying photos of Trump, our next US president

The city of New York’s fire department has forbidden its firehouses from displaying photos or materials related to President-elect Donald Trump.

Department officials sent a memo to its firehouses this week that instructed them to “remain out of the political scene and out of the political field’ because of the hotly contested election race between Trump and his vanquished rival Hillary Clinton, the New York Post reported.

The note might have made more sense if there was still a political battle going on for the White House.

“Only [the] FDNY wouldn’t want the democratically elected president of America hanging in a firehouse,” said one firefighter, who asked to remain anonymous.

“The firehouse is supposed to be a symbol of America. That’s hard to believe when you can’t post a picture of the president.”

The FDNY told the post that the memo was sent in response to complaints it received about one of its trucks riding around with a Trump mask on its gille.

“Posting of these materials is not in compliance with Regs,” the memo read. “Please make sure apparatus and quarters are clear of this material.”

The note left some confused as pictures of previous presidents hang in the firehouses now.

“They have pictures of . . . George Bush standing on the World Trade Center pile with a megaphone,” a source told the Post. “FDNY posts pictures all the time. When Barack Obama visits firehouses, FDNY officially posts photos of him shaking hands, people smiling — no problem there.”

But FDNY spokesman Jim Long hinted that the instruction was specific to this particular time.

“The message, specifically to its time, was to remain out of the political scene and out of the political field, he said. “The message went out this week.”
