Tired of fumbling with your FDNY Chart to figure out when you’ll be working two months from now? Sick of coloring the boxes and adding reminders about your mutuals?

FDNY to the rescue!

Custom-designed with the help of New York City firefighters, FDNY is smart about your chart. It knows about the 25 groups and their schedules, pairing of mutual partners, vacations, RSOT, and so on. The calendar screen always shows your day and night tours and your partner’s tours (using colors of your own choosing) for the next 24 months from “today.” It takes only a few taps to enter a mutual with your partner. A few more taps and you’ve got a mutual recorded with somebody else. Separate balances are maintained for each person. And, there’s no need for a new chart every year.

FDNY also contains a list of NYC firehouses and callboxes, complete with locations (one touch to see maps) and firehouse phone numbers (one touch to make calls).


• Displays your schedule for the next two years, including vacations, holidays, and paydays.
• Double-tap any day to see the day and night group numbers, just like the printed chart.
• Integrates with your Address Book to list your colleagues in other groups.
• Records mutuals. Tracks tours earned or owed on a person-by-person basis.
• Formats emails for sending out mutual offers.
• Contains a Logbook for keeping track of tours or hours of your choosing.
• Shows your vacation periods.
• Logs “events” with date, time and location — you can edit the title, text, and location details when you have time.
• Event locations can be mapped.
• Displays your tours and those of your mutual partner simultaneously
• Adjustable colors for day/night tours, vacations, RSOT holidays, etc.
• Track all overtime, P/P, A2R, and CFR-D by pay period.
• Mark special days such as training or medical appointments.
• Quickly locate any NYC firehouse on a map. Sort the list by engine or ladder.
• Tutorial mode: help and tips for every screen.

If you need help, use the in-app email button (on the Help tab) or send to [email protected] Please dont put questions or suggestions in a review; theres no way for me to reply. -- Jeff

I reply to all emails immediately (or within a few hours if Im sleeping or traveling, which isnt often). If you didnt hear from me promptly, it means there was failure in the Tubes. Please try again to contact me.

FDNY is for members of the New York City FD (not EMS). If you’re not a member of that department, then you do not want this app. Instead, check out Scheduler (see "Developer Apps"), which can handle repeatable shift schedules and on which FDNY is based. NYC EMS members should also use Scheduler.

Needs to be optimized for the larger sized iPhones (6 and 6 plus). Otherwise a great app!

6 stars

When I initially got the app it was a bit confusing and took a little time to figure it out but once I did I can’t live without it. Single most important app I have now.

Worst app ever

Seriously confusing and if u do figure it out its useless ... Do not buy!


Havent carried a paper calendar in years! This app is perfect for the FDNY chart. Nice job continually addressing user feedback. Cant live without this app, worth every penny.

Backing up.

Best app if your on the job period. Awesome support if you need it. I switched phone and had problems backing up so I contacted them through email, quick response and they help back up and restore to another phone.

Nozzle, Halligan, Helmet, FDNY app

Those are all essential tools for a modern fireman. Im notoriously cheap but, Im also a gadget geek and love anything that will organize my life AND give me all the info I need right at my finger tips, so I forked over the $9.99. Probably the most well spent $10 I ever let leave my hand. It does take a good amount of playing with to get the hang of it but once it clicks its like the roof being open. It works best when you keep a guys group # with his contact info. Need off for a particular tour? Just touch & hold the day and a list of guys whos groups would be a good fit come up. Cuts the amount of phone calls down tremendously. If you like to work out your MXs w/you partner a month in advance like me its helps to put yours & his vacation & RSOTs in for the year. Takes 5 minutes and theres never any last minute surprises thatll have you scrambling. P/u a tour and it keeps track of it. You can also put in a note like why you worked for them or what they needed of for. And if you have someone else pay them back you can put that in there too. Keeps the confusion about paying a tour back or who owes you to a minimum. Youll be able to jog their memory w/why and not have to search through weeks/months of entries in the book for the who & when. Fireman notoriously dont like change. Dont be a dinosaur. If youve got an iPhone, BUY THIS APP! Get the Johnny to show you how to use it. The pocket group chart used to be the best tool an off-duty fireman had. This is incredible! And if you have any questions or suggestions the developer gets right back to you and appreciates the feedback. Its a no brainer.

Problem with paycheck button
