We’re on The Today Show

Your New Rochelle firefighters had a blast yesterday morning working with NBC New York on a special Daytona 500 segment. We had a great time with the cast, guest Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his lovely wife Amy Reimann, who were all super nice. Also, we have to give a special thanks to the crew; it was a pleasure working side-by-side with our brothers and sisters of IATSE LOCAL ONE and Nabet-CWA Local 11!

Check out our Facebook photo album of our day on set.

NewRo firefighters show off soapbox cars on ‘Today’

CLOSE New Rochelle firefighter Rich Bongiorni thought there was a mistake when he received a call from an NBC producer regarding a “Today” show segment that would feature race car driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. But it was no fluke. Bongiorni – like Earnhardt Jr. – has years of racing experience, though it’s not with motorized vehicles.
