A retired chief who valiantly led FDNY operations after the Sept. 11 terror attacks will be named the city’s new fire commissioner on Friday.
Daniel Nigro, a city firefighter for more than 30 years, was all smiles when he confirmed his return to the Bravest.
“It’s the New York City Fire Department and it doesn’t get any better than that,” Nigro told the Daily News on Thursday night.
Nigro, 65, declined to answer further questions when approached at his home in Whitestone, Queens. He said he was told to keep quiet until Mayor de Blasio makes the announcement.
