Firefighters cook food for Rockaway residents
By LORENA MONGELLI
Last Updated: 12:25 AM, November 2, 2012
Two big-hearted firefighters took a break from dousing fires to flip 500 burgers and hot dogs for Rockaway residents impacted by the storm.
Kenny Hoch, of Engine 292 and John Basquez, of Engine 324, were temporarily assigned to work in Rockaway after Sandy hit.
"When we got here, it looked like a war zone," Hoch said. "It really hit home and put things into persepective."
The two men dug into their pockets and bought over $300 worth of food and drinks, firing up a barbecue grill from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., on Beach 96th Street and Beach 116th Street.
"We're firemen, we help as many people as we can," Basquez said. "These people really need it."
Local resident Kathleen Byrne also pitched in to help. "Just keeping crowd control," she said.
Meanwhile hungry residents savored the warm meals. "We feel like we are not alone," said Teresa Santos, 39, who weathered out the storm in her apartment.
"This shows there is still hope for us. People have not lost their spirit because these good men are helping us get through these difficult conditions."... ... .............................
A "Tip Of The Helmet" to these 2 BROTHERS for taking an initiative.

Are any of the "extra units" still being staffed? Also is it safe to say "The Big House" will remain as such for the foreseeable future?

 The Hooversville Volunteer Fire Company, located outside of Pittsburgh, has donated a 1981 Mack engine they had been trying to sell to the West Hamilton Beach vollies, to help in replacing their lost apparatus.
