Anthony Buono has been fascinated with fire trucks since his mother first took him as a toddler in 1971 to visit the Brooklyn fire station near his family’s home in Flatbush, New York. Now a married father of three, matrimonial attorney and volunteer firefighter in upstate New York, he still has his youthful enthusiasm for fire trucks and has developed a special interest in the earliest motor fire apparatus.

Buono is a member of SPAAMFAA. His books include Buckboard Fire Apparatus: The Original Cab Forward (2015), Firefigthing Postcards (2017), 175 Years of Service: The History of the Valatie Fire Department (2012), One Last Run: Photos from the Collection of the FASNY Museum of Firefighting (2013) and Iconic Fire Apparatus (2014).
