Content Warning: This episode contains graphic content. 

Welcome back to the hottest podcast in America, literally. 

In our first two episodes we took you inside one of our country’s darkest moments. In this episode we’re going into the fire. Head first. And we’ve got a couple of stories of raging fires and heroic rescues that will leave you on the edge of your seat.

The third episode of the Firefighters Podcast with Rob Serra, FDNY (Ret.) is a family affair and today’s episode focuses on a conversation between two brothers. Andrew Serra @AndrewSerraAuth, brother of host Rob, is Captain of FDNY Ladder 20 in Soho. They take us inside, for a deep dive into what it’s like to go into an out of control apartment fire as a rookie and the lessons that they learned. It’s the stuff legends are made of and we get to hear some of their greatest stories first hand.

Host Rob Serra (@SerraRob) is America’s leading advocate for firefighters and first-responders. A renowned activist, technical expert and father of three, Rob was born and raised in Staten Island, NY. He began his firefighting career with the FDNY and his first day in the field was September 11th, 2001. While he was not scheduled to work that day, he, along with thousands of others, reported to the World Trade Center to help with the aftermath of the attacks.

The 20th anniversary of 9/11 was a time for reflection, a time for remembering. Never forget isn’t just a hashtag. And we won’t forget. And if you’re one of America’s Firefighters, a first responder, or the family or a friend of one… this is your new home.
