May the 4th be with you, sure, but today isn’t just all about Star Wars day. It’s also National Firefighters Day, a cause that’s especially near and dear to actor Denis Leary, who starred for seven seasons on the firefighting dramedy Rescue Me and then went on to launch the Leary Firefighters Foundation.
Friday marked the actor’s second annual Denis Leary FDNY Firefighters Challenge event at the FDNY Training Academy in New York City, where Leary, alongside pals Steve Buscemi (who was once a former real life FDNY firefighter!), Rachael Ray and John Slattery, joined civilian participants in undergoing firefighter training challenges.
