    Default Black Sunday anniversary...

    From firefighterclosecalls.com

    REMEMBER BLACK SUNDAY: January 23, 2005 was "black Sunday" in New York when FDNY Lt. Curtis W. Meyran (covering Ladder 27 that day) and FF John G. Bellew (Ladder 27) died in the Line of Duty at an apartment fire in the Bronx. Four other FF's were injured: Jeffrey Cool (Rescue 3) Joseph DiBernardo (Rescue 3), Brendan Cawley (Ladder 27) and Eugene Stolowski (Ladder 27). All 6 FF's were forced to jump from the 4th floor of an apartment building as they were trapped by the fire.
    And, as you'll remember, at a separate incident in Brooklyn that day, just 3 hours after the Bronx fire, FF Richard T. Sclafani (Ladder 103) was killed in the Line of Duty after getting trapped in the basement while operating at a residential fire.
    Rest easy brothers... you will not be forgotten...

    I am reminded every work day when I put my bailout bag in my bunker pant's pocket.

    My FD did a ton of research and equipped every riding position with a gut belt and a bail out rope bag, We practice with it and are always re-evaluating and improving it.

    Rest in Peace Brothers.
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate
