          Lieutenant Robert R. Dolney sacrificed his own life in saving the lives of two probationary firemen. The roof and front wall collapsed onto the street injuring Dolney as he pushed the young firemen to safety. One fireman was blown across the street while the second one was buried along with Dolney. Besides the probationary firemen, seven others were injured when the brick veneer front wall let go. Lieutenant Donley died in the hospital. He was fifty years old, a thirty-year veteran and was married with four children. (From "The Last Alarm")

          Heroic Firefighter Remembered as Careful and Loving  NY Times - By Mirta Ojito  June 7, 1998

               His profile fits that of most other good guys who die heroically, on the job, saving other people's lives. Fire Lieut. James W. Blackmore, 48, was a quiet, unassuming man who spent a lot of time with his family and liked to golf.
He had a wife, four children, a house and, years ago, a boat. He lived a good, simple life and had a job he loved. He was a Vietnam veteran who never talked about his combat experiences, a careful man who spent many hours reading safety manuals and conducted fire drills with precision.

               ''There were no shortcuts with him,'' said Lieut. Kevin McGoldric of Engine Company 332 in Brooklyn, where Lieutenant Blackmore was assigned. ''Safety, above all, was his primary consideration.''

               Lieutenant Blackmore died Friday night battling a five-alarm fire that consumed a city-owned, three-story apartment building in East New York. He and other firefighters fell through the second floor, which caved in after it was weakened by flames.

               As his fellow firefighters at Engine Company 332 and Ladder Company 175 awaited a delivery of the black bunting that would drape the Brooklyn firehouse where he was assigned, they remembered Lieutenant Blackmore as a man who was too young and too good to die.

              ''Everyone loved him,'' said Capt. Gerard Donbrowsky, commander of Ladder 175. ''He was an all-around great guy. We are all in mourning.''

               Lieutenant Blackmore's wife, Susan, said from their home in Farmingdale, N.Y., yesterday that he was born in Ozone Park, Queens, the son of Elizabeth and Robert Blackmore, who now live in Florida. He was the second of seven brothers and sisters and the only career firefighter in the family, although his father was once a volunteer firefighter. He went to several colleges but never finished his degree in education, and he served in Vietnam from 1967 to 1971, Mrs. Blackmore said. He became a firefighter 21 years ago and was cited for bravery five times, his fellow firefighters said.

               When he was not battling fires, Lieutenant Blackmore was playing with his children in his backyard, his family and neighbors said. He had three girls -- Sara, 13, Jackie, 11, and Claire, 9 -- and a boy, Brian, 7. Because he had a firefighter's schedule, he was home three days a week and had plenty of time to work around the house and chat with neighbors.

               ''He was always outside, taking care of the house or playing ball with the children or, in the winter, fooling around in the snow,'' said Michael W. Neglia, a neighbor who lives across the street. ''He was a good, friendly guy. You couldn't say anything bad about him.''

               Shortly before he died, Lieutenant Blackmore had been talking to other firefighters about the computer he had just bought for his children. Mrs. Blackmore, a nurse, said he had also been talking about returning to school to finish his degree.

               ''He loved everything, and I loved him very much,'' said Mrs. Blackmore, 41. ''But there was nothing he liked more than going to a fire.''

               Lieutenant McGoldric said he would always remember Lieutenant Blackmore as he last saw him: sitting on a white plastic chair, smiling and surrounded by firefighters who were posing for the ladder company's annual picture. That was Wednesday, two days before Lieutenant Blackmore battled his last fire.

     CAPTAIN JOHN T. DUNNE LADDER 175 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)
