In regard to post 930 above ^^^^^^^^^Post by ladder2
from the 1982 Medal Day Book

EDITH GOLDMAN MEDAL
Awarded to
Firefighter 1st Grade JOHN J. MORAN
Engine Company 34

John Moran came up out of the subway on August 31, 1981, and walked through the Port Authority Bus Terminal to get to 9th Avenue. As he exited the terminal, a late summer breeze swirled across Manhattan's 9th Avenue, driving discarded newspapers before it, flattening early morning shoppers against the red dingy Old Law tenements. It was 8:04 A.M. and John Moran, a firefighter assigned to Engine Company 34, was on his way to the 38th Street firehouse for a day tour (9 A.M. to 6 P.M.). He stood on the comer of 9th Ave and 41st St and waited for the traffic light to change.

Suddenly, like a house of cards tumbling, a building under renovation, at 569 9th Ave began to crumble. A tremendous roar and then a collapse that unleashed a falling fury of bricks, mortar and heavy timbers. Moran activated Box 765 as the Fire Communications Center was deluged with phone calls. The firefighter raced to the collapse and dug out a civilian who was trapped in front of Exposure Number 2, (building to the left of the collapse) that address being 567 9th Ave.-Both the exposure and the collapsed building were 4-story non-fireproof Old-Law tenements with commercial occupancies on the first-floor.

A dry cleaning establishment occupied the first-floor premises at 567 9th Ave. Seven people were trapped inside as the bricks and mortar continued to drop. The fire escape from the collapsed building, Number 569, had fallen in front of the cleaners and blocked any egress. Add to this, a strong odor of natural gas drifting through the air. Obviously, gas lines had broken during the initial collapse. Another collapse and a possible explosion were real dangers. As the hail of debris continued to rain down, John Moran crawled through it and underneath the downed fire escape to reach the employees and customers in the store. Gaining command of the situation, Moran waited for things to clear. He then led the seven trapped people to safety.

Ironically enough, Moran's own unit, Engine 34, came rolling in as the first unit on the scene. The firefighter quickly apprised the officer, Lt John McGovern, of conditions and rescue operations commenced in order to reach other people who were trapped on the upper floors. As the other FDNY units rolled in, portable ladders and buckets from the tower ladders went up and down searching and removing people and workmen from the upper floors. Unfortunately, one occupant was caught in the main collapse and succumbed. Five other people were injured and removed to St. Clare's Hospital and another six required first aid for cuts and bruises.

BC William Grimes had this to say in his official report. "The remaining structural components, the serious degree of collapse and the bulging walls in Exposure 2 all were mute testimony to the life threatening situation encountered by Firefighter John J. Moran #2. By placing himself in immediate jeopardy, he successfully extricated 8 people from a very perilous situation. He continued to operate after the arrival of units and his knowledge of conditions aided immeasurably in the overall strategy that was implemented."

Operating alone, before the arrival of incoming FDNY units, FF Moran crawled through the collapse to reach the trapped people. John J. Moran #2, of Engine 34, is truly a credit to the Fire Department. His cool professionalism under fire and his heroic manner are great testaments indeed to the commitment and long tradition of New York's Bravest.

^^^^^^^Thanks to ladder 2...From 1975 Medal Day Book

Brooklyn Citizens Medal
Fireman 1st Grade CHARLES R. BOYCE
Ladder Company 108
Fire at 161 Penn Street, Brooklyn. Box 22-335
At 2234 hours, June 27, 1974, 4 Story, 20' x 40' N.F.P., Multiple Dwelling

Heavy fire conditions prevailed as Ladder Company 108 arrived on the scene. Fire had complete possession of the interior stairs from the 2nd floor up to and through the roof of the old Brooklyn Brownstone. Operations, especially laddering, were made difficult by the great number of people in the street yelling and screaming, and the presence of two large trees that obscured part of the building. At the third floor window over the stoop an adult male was passing children to people on an adjoining fire escape.

Ladder 108 raised its aerial to perform necessary ventilation, examination and search on the 4th floor. As Fireman Boyce ascended the ladder he saw that the person who had been passing the children from the 3rd floor had collapsed. Realizing the extreme life hazard, Fireman Boyce ordered the aerial lowered to the 3rd floor while he remained on the ladder.
As he climbed over the man, Chaim Reich, 30, Fireman Boyce found that he had collapsed on top of his 26 year old wife, Sarah. Fireman Boyce struggled to push both through the window, and with the help of another fireman operating on the top rung of the ladder placed them in Ladder 119's bucket. Fireman Boyce continuing his search through extreme heat and smoke found an unconscious child, age 3. He immediately retreated to the window and had the child placed in the bucket.

Returning again to the heavy smoke and heat, Fireman Boyce crawled through a small room into a large bedroom where he found two more unconscious children. Again he delivered them to the front window and passed them to members on the aerial.

The ladder was now moved to the 4th floor. Fireman Boyce again ascended the- aerial and climbed into the front bedroom window. As he reached the room he could see the unconscious forms of an adult female and two children. Reaching one of the children he quickly grabbed the child and carried her to the window and passed her out to a waiting member.
Although near the point of exhaustion Fireman Boyce started to return once again, when the room suddenly burst into flames. Fireman Boyce had to leap into Ladder 119's bucket to save his life. The child removed from the 4th floor was badly burned and died while members were administering first aid.

The five people removed from the 3rd floor were all unconscious and in need of resuscitation to revive them. In successfully rescuing five people and removing one unfortunate victim, Fireman Boyce operated before lines could protect him. While each attempt was made, the fire had increased in volume and intensity. Fireman Boyce laid his life on the line in behalf of his fellow man. He can be justly proud of his actions and the honor bestowed upon him this day.
