Ladder Co. 163 & Rescue Co. 4
My Ems Side
The Fire Side of life
How, Why I got involved
Fathers Day is a day set aside for All Dads across
the world. This is the day to honor our Dads for whom
they are, what they do, for what they stand for
in our lives.
On June 18th, 2001
3 Dads were doing the job they loved,
These 3 Dads were the normal "everyday"
Dads, whom had a special purpose in life
as Firefighters. These 3 Dads were the
idols of 8 Children's' lives.
On June 18th, 2001 Fathers Day, Ladder Co. 163, Rescue Co. 4, along with numerous other companies responded to Fire in the Astonia Section of Queens NY.
At sometime into fighting the Beast, 3 Dads were taken away from their Families.
Two of those killed -
The third, Brian Fahey, 46, of East Rockaway, L.I., was one of up to 30 firefighters inside. He was standing on the ground level when the floor caved in, and he plunged into the basement.
To the FDNY Fathers Day 3, Iowa 3, Worchester 6, Pittsburgh Valentine Day 3 & all our fallen Brother & Sister Firefighters,
You shall & always be sadly missed by all.
