Fathers Day Fire, June 17,2001

Let us not Forget the Three FDNY Members that died in the Line of Duty on Fathers Day June 17, 2001. They are: Firefighters Harry Ford and Brian Fahey of Rescue 4, and Firefighter John Downing of Ladder Co 163.
  Steve Spak has an Excellent story about it.

  I"d like to Thank FFNICK of the Bridgeport, Ct F.D. for passing this onto me.

Thanks for that reminder - looking at the website just gives you the chills!  Interesting that Harry Ford is referred to as the Mayor - his wife is a very nice lady and currently serves as a Nassau County Legislator from the Long Beach area

I'll never forget it as long as I live. Where I was sitting in the office when it happened, the looks of disbelief on my face and the faces of the other dispatchers, just a tough day all around. RIP Lads, ya dun good.
