One Hundred Years of Valor, Rescue Co. 1, New York City Fire Dep


One Hundred Years of Valor. Rescue Company 1, New York City Fire Department. Rescue 1915-2015. By: Paul Hashagen. Rescue Company No 1 is a special company of men, proven firefighters handpicked originally from hundreds of volunteers. These men had past experience in the trades of: iron workers, elevator men, masons and similar professions, and they had knowledge and knew their equipment to venture where no one else could. These firefighters handled explosives, dangerous chemicals and controlled toxic leaks. These men were sent to the most dangerous fires, be it in a cellar, subs-cellars or in the holds of ships. These firefighters were the bravest men who set the standards, operating procedures, and an ethic of training that continues to this days. These firefighters would dangle from ropes or dive underwater to rescue those in peril. This special company of firefighters would extricate people stuck in machines, pinned in vehicle wrecks or trapped in a building that collapsed. They would pull civilians and firefighters from blazing buildings and from far more hazardous situations. Their heritage has been passed on through generations of New York City rescue men. Their stories are many, their impact impressive and their motto is “Outstanding”. Author, Paul Hashagen retired, served with Rescue Company 1 after twenty-five years of service. He is also a former chief of the Freeport Fire Department on Long Island in New York, and is still an active member of truck Company No. 1. Paul has written several books including “The Bravest” the official history of the FDNY and is one of the feature columnist of Firehouse Magazine. This by all means is an outstanding historical epic! B&W and Color Photos. Pgs. 232. Book measures approximately 8 ¾ inches wide X 11 ¼ inches high. A great fireman gift.
