"Currently the age limit to apply to the fire department is 29 years old, but those who serve in the military are permitted to apply up to the age of 35 as they volunteer their early years defending dour country. By now many of you might have heard about Sean Donovan, a Navy SEAL , who served four combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and he applied to FDNY at the age of 35, and after passing all the tests  got a notification he missed the cut off by just  six months and 25 days," said Assemblymember Felix Ortiz, author of legislation that would make age requirements applicable to certain appointments or promotions of public employees who have been absent on military duty.
