UPDATE:
I wanted to add the names of the other fire departments that contributed to the donations from CT. This was a collective efforts of Montville's four independent Volunteer Fire Companies. Credit has to go to Montville Fire Co #1, Mohegan Fire Company and Oakdale Fire Department. These companies did an awesome job. The donations were distributed to hard hit areas like Creole, Grand Chenier and others. In addition to the donations, we are receiving donations from citizens in the CT area that saw the plea for assistance on the newspapers and tv stations around the area of these companies.

The Chesterfield Fire Company from Oakdale, CT delivered an 18-wheeler loaded down with donations gathered by four different fire agencies in the surrounding area of Oakdale. These donations will be transported by the New Iberia Fire Department to various areas recently affected by the Hurricane in Southwest Louisiana. In addition to water, cleaning supplies and bug spray, they also brought a chain saw and pressure washer. We are deeply touched by the generosity of our northern brothers and sincerely appreciate not only all the donations, but also transporting everything down to us. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts!

I would like to beseech those who know me for your help. My cousin, Chris Leonard, is battling covid-19 in Saint Francis Hospital in Monroe Louisiana. Chris has dedicated his life to the protection of others as he is the fire chief for Ouachita Parish . He is presently on a ventilator and is in desperate need of the blood antibodies of the covid-19 virus. I would ask that you please copy and post this on your web pages. If you know of someone that has survive the covid-19 virus please pickup the phone and call them for their help. Please help me so that we do not lose another one of our wonderful Frontline protectors.
Joe I appreciate you taking the time to make the speech you did not get to read at the 9/11 event . And as your Assistant Chief, I appreciate you and your dedication to our Department. So I would like to share it with everyone else. My Name is Captain Joe Foret, I have been a firefighter with New Iberia Fire Department for 10 years. I was asked to speak today about what happened 18 years ago today, mostly from a firefighter’s point of view. Following a terrorist attack on the twin towers of the world trade center, the FDNY immediately sprung into action, responding to what seemed like an impossible task. Dispatch records showed the first set of trucks that responded did within seconds of the first plane strike, because they saw as did most of the city as it happened and didn’t wait until they were dispatched to head that way. Within a short time the city called in about half of the trucks and personnel from the entire city, and still managed to maintain coverage of the entire city. 121 Engines, 62 Ladder trucks and many ambulances, rescue units and chiefs. Almost immediately they took on the task of setting up a fire attack, which meant climbing the stairs to the fire floor which was about 80 flights of stairs, quickly rescue and evacuate thousands of office workers, evaluate the safety of the building, stay clear of all the falling debris falling from the building…. And the list goes on and on. A second plane into a second tower doubled their workload. As the fires intensified, they had another problem arise. People who were trapped by the fire were starting to jump from the windows to escape the heat and smoke, estimates are well over 200 lives were lost this way. Then things went from really bad to a whole lot worse. Without any warning, the first building collapsed and the second not far behind that. Thousands of lives were lost in those collapses, including 8 Paramedics, 60 police officers, and 343 firefighters. Many more were critically wounded both physically and mentally. Following the collapse, the city had a huge plume of smoke, dust and debris which stood in the way of reaching survivors in the rubble. Very few were found in the days, weeks and months that followed. “ working the pile” is what the duty of digging thru all the rubble became known as searching for survivors, bodies, evidence and even still putting out fire. Little did they know that task would make many more 9/11 heroes very sick. The FDNY also had the monumental task of figuring out who was inside the building, who made it out, and notifying so many families that their hero wasn’t coming home. Members who survived describe the guilt of surviving the event, as so many didn’t. and the way they were changed by the horrors they saw, and having to see up close so many brothers killed. Firefighters consider their coworkers to be family because we spend so much time together, and our bond is forged thru our dangerous work. One of the firemen from New York that I met a couple years ago, when I asked him to share his feelings on this time of year was that it is still very hard time to remember, they get together and share stories, have a mass at the firehouse in Brooklyn but he still feels broken from all he witnessed. Since 9/11 firefighters have found many ways to remember their lost brothers and sisters with memorials, events and such. One is a what we call a stair climb. They usually attract people from all over. I attended one of these in New Orleans a few years ago. Each climber is given a card on a lanyard, with the name and picture of a FDNY member that they climb in honor of. I was given Firefighter Brian McAleese. He worked for Engine 226 in Brooklyn. After the climb, I was curious about finding more about Brian. He came from a long line of firemen in his family. He Had 4 young children. One of them was about to be baptized in a few days. He wasn’t even supposed to be on duty that day, but agreed to work for a sick friend. He was awesome guy, a family guy who would literally give you the shirt off his back. I try to carry a little of Brian with me everywhere I go. I met Brian’s sister thru facebook and I asked her to tell me more about those days when her family lost Brian. She said the department thought he was alive, because there was so much misinformation and his family was all together until he came home, eventually Brian’s brother in law was a police officer found out Engine 226 did respond so the family all stayed together in vigil as they waited to hear what happened. That is just one story of 1 guy. All of those heroes had a story, a family, many had young children. Many words have been used to describe the 9/11 heroes of that day… What is a hero? Hero is defined as a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. Valor is great courage in the face of danger, especially in battle. Sacrifice is an act of giving up something valued for the sake of something else regarded as more important or worthy… yeah that seems about right, for the heroes of 9/11. In the fire service, we always have each other’s back. We are our brother’s keeper. When a structure fire reaches the point where it is no longer safe, and building collapse or structural failure seems likely, we notify everyone inside that it’s time to evacuate, first on the radio, but sometimes its hard to hear the radio. Then we use the air horn on the truck. 3 Long blasts notifies everyone on scene to clear the building ( 3 long blasts from truck off in distance) Please join me in a moment of silence for all the lives lost, for the 343 and my buddy Brian.
Shift 3 with NIFD completed a walk through a few days after the Fremin’s incident to see the actual layout of the scene. Totally different thought's on this when you can actually see. Some may look at this and view it as a total loss. When looking at the bigger picture of this, 3/4 +or- of the total structure was saved by responding crews. Building construction, deployed sprinkler system in other sections of the building and commitment of all personnel on hand had a huge part of preserving property and ensuring all occupants were safely out of the structure. It's not often when NIFD, IPFD and all other responding departments work together at such a complex fire scene. As a Captain with NIFD, I want to personally thank every fire personnel that responded to this scene. From the firefighters that may have made it as nozzle man on the tip of an attack line, to the personnel running back and forth filling much needed SCBA bottles. We all had our part and worked together as a unified team to contain the fire. I would also like to tip my hat on the professionalism displayed by incident commanders Asst. Chief R. Benson and Chief G. Bonin in this rare occasion. Your combined years of service and dedication to personnel on scene were utilized in making sound decisions. At the end of the day the scene was terminated with everyone going home safely. All personnel should pat yourself on the back on a job well done....
