    The Tower of Power, home of Hooper the Fire Dog.

    This house became the 11th division staging area for all members on their way to the site and returning. They really got put out, but like true brothers, made us as welcome as possible.

    Default 119 Truck

    119 Truck, A.K.A. "The Lions of Hooper St. A little known piece of apparatus trivia. 119 was one of only 2 companies to run a Sutphen 100' tower ladder. With a pump, no less. One of only 2 "Quints" that were on the roster, although they were run srticly as a truck co. 14 Truck in Manhattan was the other, and I believe that both rigs have now been scrapped.
