A Distant Fire Book

No fire department in the world has a greater reputation for heroism than the FDNY. No fire department has a richer, stronger tradition of courage and daring in its members' efforts to protect the people they serve from the ravages of fire. Paul Hashagen of FDNY's Rescue 1 brings the exciting history and legendary figures of FDNY's past to the present for all of us to enjoy in his classic A Distant Fire.

A Distant Fire captures the spirits of the pioneering men and the thrilling intensity of the events that served as FDNY's foundation: the fearless ladder work of Battalion Chief William Nash; the spectacular World Building fire of 1881, fought during a raging blizzard with gale force winds and watched by 5000 spectators; phenomenal scaling ladder rescues, astounding rope rescues, and the first Borough Call in FDNY history; the creation of the FDNY Rescue, the Ritz Tower explosion in which eight firefighters lost their lives, and the day in 1945 when a B-25 bomber crashed into the side of the Empire State Building. Over 90 rare photos and illustrations enhance the impact of the incredibly powerful stories of A Distant Fire!.
