Leadership Continuity in a High-Risk, Ever-Changing World with Lt Jack Meara, FDNY


Our guest in this episode, FDNY Lieutenant Jack Meara, comes from a long line of FDNY firefighters and proudly joined the Department in 1982. He was first assigned to Engine Co. 67 in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan, which was one of the most active companies coming out of the FDNY’s War Years. In 1995, after working with some of the most seasoned and experienced members on the job, he promoted to Lieutenant and within a relatively short period of time was assigned to Engine Co. 46 in the Bronx where he continues to serve today. As you’ll hear in this conversation, that continuity of leadership has made a great and lasting impact on those around him.
