Trailblazing FDNY Lt. Adrienne Walsh is making history — again.
Walsh, 51, on Monday became the first woman to serve in a position of rank in one of five of the department’s elite rescue companies.
Serving as a lieutenant in Rescue Company 1, which covers Manhattan, Walsh is joining one of five highly technical emergency response units that race to large fires or other high-risk situations where specialized training, skills and equipment are required. Each borough has its own unit.
But it’s Walsh’s second “first” in her FDNY career.
