FDNY Engine Company 74’s newest member has big paws to fill

Retired FDNY Battalion Chief James Trainor died in 2018 after 39 years on the job and wanted to be buried in uniform. His daughter, Patti Trainor-Wrazej, lives on the Upper West Side and asked her local firefighters at Engine 74 to help get a shirt for him, becoming friends with the members in the process.

In 2020, Trainor-Wrazej returned the favor. When she learned of the death of Yogi, E-74’s beloved mascot, earlier this year, she got them JT, a new dalmatian named for her father, reports Carol Tannenhauser for the West Side Rag. JT recently moved into the firehouse.

Yogi got his name from FF Ruben Correa, who was killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Yogi was Correa’s nickname.

JT has his own Instagram account, @jt_thefiredog.
