FDNY Rescue 2

FDNY Rescue 2 *THIS PAGE ISNT OWNED OR OPERATED BY ANY MEMBER OF THE FDNY* Rescue 2 is the second rescue company out of 5 It is located in Brooklyn.March 1st, 2010 marked the 85th Anniversary of Rescue Company No. 2.
(22)

General Order No.15 of 1925 officially organized the Company. Special Order No. 35 of 1925 transferred in the Charter Members of the Newly established Rescue Company. The catalyst for the formation of Brooklyn's Rescue Company, was a fire aboard a Submarine located within the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Rescue Co.1, located in Manhattan was assigned to respond for use of its specialized equipment, including smoke masks. The significant spread of fire aboard ship given the lengthy response time of Rescue 1, is credited as the reason for the formation of Rescue Co. 2. During its 85 year history, 80 Rescue Co.2 members have received Department medals for valor, and the Company has been awarded 52 Unit Citations. Ten members of Rescue Co. No. 2 have made the Supreme Sacrifice.

Mission: SERVICE The Department continues its unwavering call to protect and serve. BRAVERY Bravery is the ability to overcome fear through fortitude, instinct, compassion for others and training. SAFETY We strive to keep our citizens free from danger, especially deliberate, harmful acts. With the best equipment and training, the Department can reduce the risk to the public and its members at fires, emergencies and medical incidents. HONOR The enormous commitment necessary to perform the Department’s tasks requires excellence of character. We inspire each other through pride in our unit, which is a belief that every action reflects on all the members of the unit, both past and present. DEDICATION A commitment to the objectives of our mission is an essential part of our code of conduct. The faithful observance of duty calls for us to fulfill our obligations professionally and honestly. PREPAREDNESS By combining all of the components of our core values, the FDNY will maintain its constant state of readiness to meet all threats and challenges, traditional and new.

New York City Fire Department (FDNY)

It is with deep regret that FDNY announces the line of duty death of FDNY EMT Yadira Arroyo. EMT Arroyo, 44, was assigned to Station 26 in the Bronx and bravely served the Department for 14 years. EMT Arroyo was critically injured while responding to a medical call in the Bronx when an individual seized control of her ambulance and struck her. She was transported to Jacobi Medical Center where she succumbed to her injuries. She is the 8th member of FDNY EMS to die in the line of duty, and the 1146th member of the Department to make the Supreme Sacrifice while serving our city.

Memories - R-2 at Brooklyn 4th alarm at 200 Willoughby Ave. on 2-15-13 More photos at www.BTFirephotos.com
Reading a great book The Last Man Out!
I had the awesome privilege of meeting the men of Rescue 2 last weekend. I am terrible when it comes to names (I apologize for that). Here is a shot of Rescue 2 I was able to get. I look forward to another visit later this summer to see their new quarters! Thank you again for the awesome hospitality.
I have decided that I am going to send a message each day, for a year, to someone who has crossed my path and made my life brighter. 9/11 First Responders, Today it’s you. Like so many Americans, I will never forget where I was 17 years ago on a Tuesday morning. We stared in complete shock and awe and grasped at any piece of information we could get. And while thousands ran away from the nightmare you ran towards it. My favorite documentaries about 9/11 are any that follow the first responders. You are the true heroes of America. You are the brave and the mighty. I am so grateful for all you and your families gave us that day and every day. I imagine that this anniversary is so painful for so many, because it wasn’t just about where they were and what happened, but it was the day their father, brother, daughter, sister, mother, uncle, husband, aunt or wife gave up their life in efforts that were planned to terrorize our country. I am sorry for their loss and I am forever grateful for your willingness and for your sacrifice, your lives and your courage.
Thinking of tomorrow, thinking of my Grandpop, Martin J. Lawler. Captain of Rescue 2, 1965. Thinking of you all. Beth from VT.
