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 six years from “today.” It takes only a few taps to enter a mutual with your partner. A few more taps and you’ve got a banked 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 six years, including vacations, holidays, and paydays.
• Double-tap any day to see the day and night group numbers, just like the printed chart.
• You can enter colleagues for other groups.
• Records banked 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.
• 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.
• Countdown to retirement.
• Extensive Help pages for every feature and screen; indexed.

If you need help, use the in-app email button (on the Help tab) or send to fdny@buddy.com. Please don't put questions or suggestions in a review; there's no way for me to reply directly to you. -- Jeff

I reply to all emails immediately (or within a few hours if I'm sleeping or traveling, which isn't often). If you didn't 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 (including Fire Marshals, EMS, ABCD, and Light Duty). If you’re not a member of that department, then you do not want this app. Instead, check out Scheduler, which can handle repeatable shift schedules and on which FDNY is based.

What's new in version 6.0
Version 6 is a complete rewrite of FDNY. Everything is new. It has the same features v5, except meals are no longer tracked (use the Logbook instead). Classic Events will be added to the Logbook. Creating and managing cycles is easier -- it can handle your light duty patterns or ABCD. Use the in-app Help tab to learn about Scheduler's features and operation (Help has an index). Please do an in-app Backup before updating.
