On this day in 2005 the fire service changed forever. In my opinion the events of “Black Sunday” in New York city is a pivotal day in the modern fire service. On “Black Sunday” the FDNY lost three firefighters in two separate fires on opposite ends of the city.
This day made it a reality that things go wrong and the firefighters were forced to jump, two to their deaths. We all should take a moment to pause today and review our mayday procedures to honor the sacrifices made on this day in 2005.
God Bless the FDNY and the Fallen!
