Firehouse

August 2011

As we approach the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, the FDNY fireboat Firefighter II berthed in Staten Island provides a water display in front of the Statue of Liberty. It is one of two new identical fireboats recently added to the department’s Marine Division. The first boat was named 343 in honor of the firefighters who were lost on 9/11. Never forget.

Dedication: This month’s Firehouse® is dedicated to Firefighter Robert Dean Watts, 51, of the Windsor, CT, Volunteer Fire Department; Firefighter Elias Jaquez, 49, of the Cactus, TX, Volunteer Fire Department; Captain Michael C. Webb, 46, of the Neon, KY, Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department; and Firefighter Charles Foster, 59, of the Barton Volunteer Fire Department in Olive Branch, MS, who died in the line of duty, April 2011.
