    I have not seen or heard of an FDNY line card in years, I doubt they even still exist in todays litigious society. They do still bestow honorary ranks to persons who are friends of the department.

    There is still mention of fire line cards, buff badges...etc. in the Regulations if I recall. But basicly there are so many limits as to make it almost impractical. If someone showed up with one today, I doubt any of us would recognize the ID or think it was legit unless we knew the buff personally.

    Most Chiefs would probably call the marshalls to look at anyone producing such ID at a job.

    Thanks - my Dad probably got it back in the 60's?....I forget who signed it.....it will probably end up in a museum at some point - along with his WTC artifacts (He worked there after the 1st bombing).....he also gave me a NYS Fire Warden wallet badge - 1st one I have ever seen.....and some FDNY annual reports from the 1960's.......
