REST IN PEACE BROTHER....PRAYERS FOR THE COMFORT OF THE FAMILIES......Scott was at times nicknamed the mad inventor....very good ideas...i remember when he started to introduce the whizzer saw into the Job...he had a crude model he put together using manufactured pieces but sort of like the ones today.....he was told to take it to the Safety Bn for approval...they immediately knocked it because the disc spinning at 2200 rpm (if i remember) had no guard...they said if the disc shatters etc etc....Scott went to the doorway of a tile wall utility room & with the trigger taped on he reached his arm into the room holding the hose about a foot & a half back he started swinging it around gouging the tiles but no damage to the blade....he got his point across....a very simple but very useful tool was introduced.

RET FF PHILLIP MAHANEY....   http://obits.silive.com/obituaries/siadvance/obituary.aspx?n=philip-mahaney&pid=186273410       REST IN PEACE BROTHER.....THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE BOTH MILITARY (US ARMY) & FDNY......PRAYERS FOR THE COMFORT OF THE FAMILIES..... As a Cov Lt in R*5 late '80s i had the pleasure of having Phil as the Rescue Chauf on several occasions....as said in his Obit he was a very capable man....i remember one night we were at a job in a Queen Anne.....the Fire was in several areas all starting in the walls due to an electrical issue....we tried shutting power in the basement in the normal manner but the lines remained charged & the Fire continued to extend & it seemed like we were going to lose the whole bldg & there was no ETA for the Utility Company.....i thought about cutting the service where it entered the box in the basement since it was raining outside.....i went outside to tell the Chief & get electrical cutters as i was telling the Chief (with my back to the bldg) the Chief suddenly went WTF ? ...i turned to see what he was looking at & Phil (who unbeknown to me was a Licensed Electrician) was standing on the porch roof w/a small pair of cutters separating & cutting the service eliminating the problem......always a pleasure to work with....his Twin Brother Pat was also OTJ.

IN REGARD TO REPLY # 754 ABOVE.....Fireman 1st Grade Philip M. Mahaney Ladder Co. 103
Off-duty rescue at 378 Pennsylania Avenue, Brooklyn. Box 7-5-2001,
1539 hours, December 18, 1970. 4 story, N.F.P., Multiple Dwelling.
FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT MEDAL (Naer Tormid Society)

Off-duty and driving his car along Pennsylvania Avenue, Fireman Mahaney observed heavy volumes of smoke issuing from a building at the above address. He raced to the scene and was informed by civilians gathered in front of the building that people were trapped inside. He immediately directed a civilian to transmit an alarm and entered the building to make a search. When he reached the fire floor, he was attracted by the crying of a child. Guided by this crying, he searched the fire apartment and found Curtis Faison huddled in the corner of a room. He picked the child up and rushed to the street.

Re-entering the building, Fireman Mahaney proceeded to the 3rd floor where he found a woman and her 4 children, completely disoriented by the heavy smoke condition, wandering aimlessly. He calmly took the youngest in his arms, a 7 year old girl by the hand, and instructed the woman to hold her other two children by the hand and follow him. All were safely escorted down the stairs to the safety of the street.

Civilians in the street informed Fireman Mahaney that there were still more people in the building, despite the fact that the heat and smoke conditions in the building had reached severe proportions; Fireman Mahaney once again entered the building. This time, he proceeded to the 4th floor to search that area. There he found Mrs. Taylor, in a state of shock, holding a 9 month old infant. Gently reassuring her that all would be well, he guided her and the child down the stairs. On the way down, members of arriving units met them between the 1st and 2nd floors. Advising them of the prevailing conditions, in the now blazing building, Fireman Mahaney continued to lead the woman and her infant to the street and safety.

Fireman Mahaney performed all of these rescues before the arrival of fire department units, without any protective fire clothing and without the benefit bf breathing equipment. He unhesitatingly risked his life for the safety of others.

The efficient and professional manner in which Fireman Mahaney performed, certainly is in keeping with the finest traditions of the Fire Department.

greatest generation..thank you (usn..nypd..fdny)

 Every time I read of another War Years Vet passes, I stop and think about what this guy might have done over his career as a firefighter.

 In most cases, I really have no idea who they were. But I do have a pretty good idea of what they did. Each one has their own story to tell of a time when fires throughout New York City had reached a staggering amount. An amount that I don't think will ever be seen again, anywhere.

 These guys while performing their jobs would amaze even the most experienced firefighters from across the country. It was totally unbelievable what these guys did. Not just in one night or one week, but for years - every single day. At times often going from one serious building fire to another. There was also the constant rubbish fires, car fires and false alarms.

 When it comes to the Fire Dept, there is no doubt, these guys really were the Greatest Generation.

Agree totally, Bill.  Everyone had their own story to tell - and the stories are remarkable.  Dedicated, motivated, tireless, self-less service.  Thank you to all in this tread.  God bless you.
