NEW YORK - A Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City helicopter crew helped fulfill the dream of a Queens boy with a life threatening illness, at Juniper Valley Park in Queens, N.Y., Monday. Eight-year-old Colin Flood, diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia, is battling his second round of the disease after fighting it off with chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. An avid fan of shows such as Coast Guard Alaska and the Deadliest Catch, Colin dreamed of being in a Coast Guard helicopter. Due to the serious nature of his condition, it was uncertain whether Colin would be able to experience seeing a Coast Guard helicopter up close. The New York Police Department and Fire Department of New York closed Juniper Valley Park, located near the Flood's home, so a Coast Guard helicopter crew could safely land there and Colin could visit it. Once the Coast Guard air crew was on scene, they gave Colin a tour of the helicopter and presented him with a photograph of the helicopter signed by the Air Station crew, ...

What Happened to Working-Class New York? As images of wealth abound, the struggles of ordinary workers have become invisible. Joshua Freeman April 16, 2013 | This article appeared in the May 6, 2013 edition of The Nation. Hurricane Sandy pushed into view echelons of working-class New Yorkers normally hidden behind workplace walls or in obscure neighborhoods, or made invisible by familiarity and indifference. There, suddenly center stage, was the old, heavily Catholic, white working class. Some of the most devastated parts of the city, like Breezy Point and Gerritsen Beach, seemed frozen in time, neighborhoods of Irish- and Italian-American policemen, firefighters, blue-collar workers and politicians, still reflecting a New York dominated by European immigrants and their children. As on 9/11, heroic rescue efforts by the Fire Department exposed how white and male it has remained, even as the city’s population has become ever more diverse. Newer immigrants, too, were thrust into the spotlight, like Phil . ...

A Fire Chief's Advice On How to Be a Great Firefighter Vincent Dunn | Deputy Chief (Ret., Fire Department of New York) 1. The Fire Service is a dangerous profession. Every year, on average 100 firefighters die and another 80,000 are injured. To stay safe, study and learn about your emergency work and its hazards. Knowledge of your job enhances safety. 2. Heart attacks are the number-one killer of firefighters. Remain in good physical and mental condition. A lifelong commitment to exercise and good living can save your life and make you a better firefighter. 3. The military, police and Fire Service – we are all in dangerous professions where members risk their lives. But fire fighting is different. We have the best of the death professions. For example, in the military to be a good soldier you may have to shoot people. In law enforcement, to be a good police officer you may have to arrest people. In the Fire Service, to be a good firefighter we have to save lives. After your career is over, your memories ...
"EDIS CODE: FR-20121124-37288-USA Date & Time: 2012-11-24 04:59:46 [UTC] Area: USA, State of New York, 55 Water Street, Lower Manhattan, New York City At least 27 people were treated for smoke inhalation outside a downtown office tower after a fire broke out early Friday morning in the storm-struck basement of 55 Water Street, the Fire Department said. The building, which is still without power and operating on generators, is home to city agencies and large private companies, including the Department of Transportation and Standard & Poor's, the financial rating company. Clinging to the eastern edge of southern Manhattan, the imposing 53-story tower is among dozens of downtown buildings still struggling to return to normal after surging waters from Hurricane Sandy ripped through basements and lower floors, knocking out vital systems. Many remain reliant on power from generators, which groan loudly on surrounding streets and create what can appear from the outside to be a complicated web of wires. But it .. ...

Yogi Berra is a Baseball Hall of Famer catcher from the New York Yankees. When you watch old baseball footage he is the guy that is jumping up and down and yelling at the Umpires. He was retired from Baseball and lived in a rural area in the State of New York. One day he noticed a brush fire on his property. He went into his house to call the local Fire Department. He told the fire department about the fire. The Officer that answered the phone told Yogi that they would be happy to come out and put out his fire. But, how do we get to your place and Yogi responded “don’t you guys have those big red trucks anymore?”

my nephew's application to the merchan tmarine academy..made me sniffle a bit. "May 17, 2012 September 11, 2001 was the day that my uncle, Terrence Farrell, made the ultimate sacrifice while serving as a member of the Fire Department of New York. I didn’t realize it at the time, but that event made quite an impact on my life. That impact would be solidified by talking to my uncle who served in Vietnam as a pilot in the Marines and earned two Purple Hearts during his tour of duty. In 2004, another uncle was deployed as a Lieutenant Colonel to Iraq with the NY Army National Guard. I spoke a lot with my uncles about the military. Last year, I also had an opportunity to meet Daniel Murphy who spoke about his son, Lieutenant Michael J. Murphy, recipient of the Medal of Honor for his actions overseas. These men greatly influenced my decision to serve my country as a leader in the military. I see no greater start to this journey than attending the US Merchant Marine Academy. My leadership role as Eucharistic ...
