    Default Capt. Patrick (Paddy) Brown WTC

    I donated blood to the American Red Cross last week and received a card with the name of a victim of 9-11. I happened to receive the card that read:
    Capt. Patrick J. Brown
    New York, N.Y.
    World Trade Center
    When I picked up the card I did not know anything about Mr. Brown. I have done some research on-line and found that this man was deeply admired by many. I would really like to let his family know that there are people that are praying that Jesus Christ will bless their family. I would like to learn more about Capt. Paddy Brown's life and legacy. To anyone reading this keep praying for all of the fallen and live your life as Jesus Christ leads you.

    Paddy Brown...one of FDNY's finest. His daring rope rescue in 1991 made headlines here in New York. God rest his soul!

    Stories about Patrick appeared in the NY Post, shortly after his remains were found. They can be viewed at:

    "it was once said that when Pat walked down a street fire would break out spontaneously and young women would appear at their windows crying out to be saved"

    The good thing about this job is that we have done so much, with so little, for so long that we can do everything with nothing...... which is what is wrong with this job.

    Have been an FDNY buff for a very long time. First time I ever rode was with Rescue Co. 1 many moons ago when I was 16. Imagine a young volunteer FF from the suburbs, running 250 calls per year, who thought that FDNY was the championship team of firefighting....An older member of the volunteer company he rides with, is also an FDNY buff....Gives him the number of R1 and says "You call up there and see if we can ride next weekend, and I will drive."

    Said young Firefighter dialed the phone...was about as nervous as a dog about to **** a razor blade.....may as well have been calling god himself.....Someone answers the phone, I explain I was a buff and volunteer, and wanted to come ride next weekend....Guy says "Hold on, I'll get the Loo for you....."

    Loo comes on the phone, I explain again....He looks at the calendar, says in a friendly voice "Sure! No Problem! I'm working 24 hours on Saturday. C'mon up saturday morning, you can stay the night. We'll put you in on the meal!"

    That started a passion of buffing and riding with FDNY that continues to this day (although the riding has come to almost a complete stop.) That "Loo" at Rescue 1? None other than Paddy Brown.

    (And I can not let this post go without mentioning that two other members of Rescue 1 were riding that saturday also perished at box 8087- FF's Angelini and O'Keefe. RIP.)
