A Legend We Should Learn From
At 98, FDNY Loses One of Its Oldest Retirees
A true legend of our brotherhood that we should pay close attention to and learn from. He had it right!
His fire-safety legacy lives on: Stanco won't see a Broadway show without memorizing a theater's exit locations, cook without a fire extinguisher nearby or stay at a hotel without choreographing how many lefts and rights there are to evacuation stairs.
"He trained us," she said.
He so hated fires that he even forbade the family to use the fireplace. But one Christmastime in the 1960s while he was at work, the rest of the family gathered wood and lit the fireplace without opening the flue. Decorations soon caught fire.
