Description

A Distant Fire

A true FDNY classic!

No fire department in the world has a greater reputation for heroism than the FDNY. No fire department has a richer, stronger tradition of courage and daring in its members' efforts to protect the people they serve from the ravages of fire. Paul Hashagen of FDNY's Rescue 1 brings the exciting history and legendary figures of FDNY's past to the present for all of us to enjoy in his classic A Distant Fire.

A Distant Fire captures the spirits of the pioneering men and the thrilling intensity of the events that served as FDNY's foundation: the fearless ladder work of Battalion Chief William Nash; the spectacular World Building fire of 1881, fought during a raging blizzard with gale force winds and watched by 5000 spectators; phenomenal scaling ladder rescues, astounding rope rescues, and the first Borough Call in FDNY history; the creation of the FDNY Rescue, the Ritz Tower explosion in which eight firefighters lost their lives, and the day in 1945 when a B-25 bomber crashed into the side of the Empire State Building. Over 90 rare photos and illustrations enhance the impact of the incredibly powerful stories of A Distant Fire!.

This soft cover book is only $24.95 plus $3.99 shipping & handling.

Received in a quick timely manner. As for the book. It's full of amazing stories of the firemen of the FDNY. Hard to believe what they accomplished without the turnout gear, scba which is in common use today. Well written book by Paul Hashagen.
