Here in the city back on 3/13/21 we had a devastating structure fire that destroyed the house and the residents pretty much lost everything. That home turned out to be the family of one of our members, firefighter Javon Byrd from Engine 23, 1st platoon. A Go Fund Me has been set up and if you would like to help this family get back on their feet it would be a wonderful thing! Thank you. https://gofund.me/a8e2a94b

With March being Women's History Month we would like to recognize former Deputy Commissioner Margaret Keane. (Center). Not only was DC Keane one of the first group of female firefighters hired by the Buffalo Fire Department, she was also Buffalo’s first (and only) female Arson Investigator, and first (and only) Deputy Commissioner! Here she is seen with her two daughters (Katie (left) currently an EMS Lieutenant & Margaret “Meg” (right) currently a lieutenant at our very own Engine 33). DC Keane enjoyed a long and very well respected career which included a long stay at Engine 2 on Buffalo’s West Side (consistently one of The BFD’s busiest companies for runs). Here is to you Deputy!!

ADDITIONAL INFO (Shared by retired ff Ellen Pauletta Peoples)

Even Before Her daughters came aboard the Buffalo Fire Department Deputy then Firefighter Margret Cecilia Keane Established a Women’s training program with UB and the YWCA that helped women to prepare for the physical agility test. Margret was inspirational well before she became an officer. As she climb the ranks she reached back to insure women in Buffalo NY was ready. To take the physical agility and written exam. Thirty women graduated the program and ALL MADE THE City of Buffalo’s Fire Department LIST.
Margret was Co Founder of New York State Women Firefighters where she was on the Board of Directors where The Women’s Training Weekend at The New York State Fire Academy was born. From the Women’s Weekend Phoenix FireCamp for teenage girls was born. Women Firefighters of all ranks from all over the country volunteer a week to host the camp in Utica New York.
Deputy / Fire Investigator/ Lieutenant Margret Margaret Cecilia Keane from South Buffalo made sure that Western New York was inclusive for ALL Women. True Grit strong determined Awesome Firefighter Mentor and friend Thank You Margret for everything. God Speed to both Katie and Meg both just as Awesome as their Mom.
Love and respect to you all.

E33/2nd platoon along with E21/2nd took part in some pump ops training this am despite temps in the mid twenties. Constantly reviewing your apparatus' capabilities they simulated losing the ability to pressurize lines above pump pressure, operating lines when unable to engage into pump, operating lines when the engine becomes disabled but has battery power, as well as pumping through a completely disabled 1st due engine. Strong work today by all involved.

Last night marked the last shift of Lt Kevin Scott (E36-3rd Platoon). A proud alum of E-33 prior to his promotion, Kevin served the citizens of Buffalo for 25 years receiving several awards for going above and beyond. His experience and calm under pressure will be sorely missed not only by the citizens, but those that have had the pleasure of working with him. Enjoy your retirement brother, you more than deserve it!

Our deepest sympathies go out to the members of the Buffalo Police Dept and the Godios family...rest easy.

We extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Officer Sean Godios. He was a dedicated member of the Buffalo Police Department who served his community with honor for more than six years.

This past year has been challenging for all of us, especially the men and women of the Buffalo Police Department. During this time of immense grief, we hope the community can come together to honor this fallen hero and the men and women who keep us safe.
