    I have a video of this riot situation that a friend sent me. The video last about 5 minutes. Totally "uncivilized chaos" is the only way I can describe it. As I see it, "I'm glad I'm on the outside looking in". My guess is that NYC is in some very serious trouble unless something is done to...

    Thoughts of Our Time

    I guess with everything going on these days, we all need a little something to lift our spirits up. So I looked into the archives of a much happier time and I found this. I'm sure many of us, somewhat senior members, will probably recognize some of these familiar faces of a much happier time...

    Charleston 9 Memorial on Savannah Highway vandalized, officials say

    WHY ? Why would somebody do that ? As firefighters, volunteer or city paid, we ask that question. Families and friends of those nine firefighters ask that same question. May the Charleston Nine continue to Rest in Peace.

    Bridgeport FD Changes

    FDNY and NYC Firehouses and Fire Companies - 2nd Section

    Joe, "mack", what a GREAT JOB. This latest history on Engine 58/Ladder 26 is "special to me". Back in 1968/69, I was just starting to get into buffing the FDNY after my initial introduction to Engine Co 210 and Rescue 2 on Carlton Ave, Brooklyn. It was also a time before the very popular book...

    Dan, I guess that was my "Lucky Day". As most of us know, there aren't too many tillers around. I think the FDNY has maybe 18-20, I'm not sure. Here in Connecticut there's only four cities that have them. Norwalk has One, Meriden has One, New London has One and I think New Haven has Two. In...
