Back around 1984 a friend's uncle was a fireman in E225. He invited us to come ride on a 6x. I didn't know too much about the area being a young teenager. I do remember that E225 didn't turn a wheel the entire tour. Looking back now that must have been a very odd night, now knowing how busy they were in those years.

Ladder 175 was organized in 1970 in Ladder 107's former quarters.

     


Captain John T Dunne, L-175 - LODD - March 28, 1971

     Captain Dunne was the 1st company commander of L-175 when it was formed on February 20, 1970. On March 28th, 1971, L-175 responded to a 3 alarm fire at 1090 Halsey Street with children trapped. Captain Dunne entered the 2nd floor to search for the missing children. Shortly later a Mayday was transmitted. The stairway had burned out, making members attempting to rescue Capt Dunne difficult. Capt Dunne was burned to death, his body was found tangled with a bicycle. (from NYC Fire Wire)

     


Box 33-820  Halsey Street & Evergreen Avenue, Bushwick

Not as BC if Chief Leonard. TL 107 is 2012 Seagrave and E225 appears to be a KME.
