Chronicles the proudest fire department in America. The story of firefighting in New York City is one of danger, tradition, pride, excitement, and tragedy. It is also the story of man's triumph over destructive forces. From the gaslight days of horse-drawn steam engines to the World Trade Center tragedy of 2001, the heroic men and women who make up the city's most dynamic public service have risked and often lost their lives. This book is one in a series of American fire department histories, made all the more poignant by the events of September 11, 2001. Steven Scher, former fire alarm dispatcher and deputy press secretary for FDNY is well known for his numerous articles on the history of FDNY. Scher and the publisher will donate a portion of proceeds to the Widows' and Children's Fund of the UFA.
