2ND VICE PRESIDENT
I’m Firefighter Steven Marquez. Assigned to L-154 in Jackson Heights, Queens. I’m the 2nd Vice President of the FDNY Hispanic Society and have been an active member since 2006. I was previously assigned to E-218 in Bushwick Brooklyn, then transferred to E-307 and now in L-154. I’m a first-generation Firefighter in my family. I’m a Firefighter 1 and Fire Instructor 1 NYS certified. In addition, I also had the opportunity to teach future firefighters entering the Fire Department. Always representing all Latinos, especially my own of Ecuador.
I want to bring different Latino cultures together and make our beloved Society available for our future members on the job.
SGT. AT ARMS
I joined the FDNY in July of 2014 and started with Engine 307 before transferring to Ladder 154. I have been a member of the Hispanic society since joining the department and have always wanted to contribute as best I can. The past two plus years I have been a Queens delegate and have talked to many firefighters, probies and candidates to help the best I can. Now that I am Sgt At Arms I want to further help our mission and bring new ideas and leadership that I have learned throughout both my Marine Corps and firefighter careers.
