Joe Peterson was a member of 132 before transferring to 162. Rest in Peace. Thoughts and prayers for your family and friends.

Yes Joe worked in 132 for awhile before going to Queens,Joe did some great things in 132 but the then Capt (Kuhnle) really didn't believe in writing guys up unless it was spectacular.Joe transferred to Queens and while there he received two Medals.   R.I.P. Joe

Fire helmet on a church wall:

     I went to a meeting in our church and noticed an old FDNY fire helmet hanging on a meeting room wall - Ladder 30.  I asked the new pastor after the meeting how he came by the helmet.  He paused for a moment and said that it was is father's.  He then said he was very proud that his father was a NYC fireman, but that he had died after fighting a fire in Harlem.  He said what a blow that was to him as a young boy and how hard it was for his family to get by without him.  They had to leave NYC and move in with his aunt.  But he always kept his father's helmet so that he could think of him every day.     

         


     1931 PRENTICE MEDAL - JAMES J. STEAKEM FF. LAD. 30 APR. 10, 1930 1931 PRENTICE MEDAL

     LODD - FIREFIGHTER JAMES J. STEAKEM LADDER 30 May 15, 1940

          Fireman James J. Steakem reported to the quarters of Ladder 30 at 4:00 p.m. for his regularly scheduled tour of duty. Ladder 30 responded to 2182 Lexington Avenue for a small fire at 5:28 p.m. The company returned to quarters at 5:40. At 6:45 Fireman Steakem reported to the company officer that he was suffering severe chest and stomach pains. An ambulance was called and Fireman Steakem was transported to Knickerbocker Hospital at 70 Convent Avenue. Doctors thought that he was suffering from a ruptured gastric ulcer, but at 2:10 a.m. on May 15 he died of a heart attack. Fireman Steakem was appointed to the Department on February 1, 1920 at the age of 33 and was married. He spent all of his time in the Fire Department in Ladder 30. (From "The Last Alarm)
