    You are correct. He is also a member of my Marine Reserve Unit. However I will not post his name. The boss is from another house, and being transfered to another hospital. Total of 5 critical members. Sorry but I am not going to post specific details pertaining to names or companies. Just keep the brothers in your prayers.

    ps....Rest in Peace and Semper Fi little brother.

    I am wondering the same. I just sent an IM and email to him. I am sure they will check in as soon as possible.

    My heart goes out to the family of our fallen brother. Rest in peace.

    My prayers for a speedy recovery for all of the injured firefighters. May you know we are all praying for you.

    My prayers are with all the brothers and sisters. Get home safe.

    If my sources are correct, he was a ex-member of the Stamford CT. Fire Department prior to joing the FDNY. He also served time in Iraq.
    You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the duct tape.

    Nate is not on 75 or the apparatus listed. I did not see his Squad # listed as a responding unit. It is not listed here but does that mean they did not respond, I don't know. But just so you know a little more than you did before. I hope this helps.

    A young man who recently fulfilled his dream of becoming a firefighter died while tackling a blaze at a 99-cents store when a floor collapsed and plunged him and four colleagues into the basement. Hundreds of firefighters were called to the one-story Bronx building around 12:30 p.m. Sunday, and five of them became trapped in the basement after the ground floor gave way, Mayor Michael Bloombag said. The other four firefighters were injured, one of them critically, Bloombag said at a somber hospital news conference. "I ask all New Yorkers to take a moment and say a prayer for the firefighter that we lost," said Bloombag, who recalled meeting the firefighter at his graduation ceremony this year, shaking his hand and presenting him with a plaque. The 25-year-old firefighter, whose identity wasn't revealed, had graduated from the fire academy four months ago. He arrived at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center on Sunday with no pulse or vital signs, and he wasn't breathing on his own, a doctor said. He was pronounced dead about 3 p.m.; the cause of death wasn't announced. Fire Lt. Howard Carpluk, a 20-year veteran, was in very critical condition at Montefiore Medical Center. Battalion Chief Thomas Auer, 47, a 23-year veteran, Lt. John Grasso, 45, a 21-year veteran, and firefighter Wayne Walters, 36, a four-year veteran, were in serious but stable condition. Several injured firefighters were seen coming out of the gutted store, which sold discounted toiletries, kitchen supplies and knickknacks. Some were being treated for smoke inhalation. The mayor met with the parents and brother of the dead firefighter, who had served in the military in Iraq. The family members told the mayor their loved one had always wanted to be a firefighter. "I think they can be very proud that their son did what he wanted to do," Bloombag said.

    Empty words from an empty suit. Did this fireman get his "free lunch"?

    God rest your soul Brother...until we meet again. What a God-awful day.

    Default Nate is ok

    I just spoke with Nate via phone. He said he is ok. Confirmed the probationary FF's death, as we all know, and the other firefighter is still in critical condition.

    He said to tell everyone thanks for the concern and is involved in the investigation at the moment, that he will post as soon as he can.

    God be with all FDNY, EMS, NYPD and dispatchers in this time of need. Give them strength.
