Blue Collar Buzz Coming Attractions! FDNY Pioneer Brenda Berkman and More!

October 27, 2017

By Joe Maniscalco

On this week’s Sunday night episode of LaborPress’ Blue Collar Buzz on AM970 The Answer, we talk to FDNY pioneer

Brenda Berkman.

Brenda Berkman about becoming NYC’s first female firefighter 35 years ago — as well as current efforts to help train more women to become the next generation of female firefighters and why that campaign is now more vital than ever. We’re also taking a further look at how we are responding to climate change-related disasters with ALIGN Executive Director Maritza Silva-Farrell, and Teamsters Local 445 Truck Daniel Maldonado, who is just back from volunteering in hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico.

Tune into LaborPress’ Blue Collar Buzz this Sunday night at 9 p.m. on AM970TheAnswer, or stream the episode right here on Monday!
