They Also Served...

I just got my copy of the just-published "They Also Served- A History Of The Non-Municpal Fire Departments Of New York City" published by Fire Apparatus Journal Publications.

This book is very well researched, and contains a ton of information and over 600 photos (both past and current) of those FD's in NYC that aren't part of FDNY. They go into the history and story of the orginization, and their apparatus. The photo collection in this book is found no where else

Departments covered:
-New York Fire Patrol
-Port Authority Of New York And New Jersey
-Military Base
-Federal Agencies
-City Agencies
-Transportation Agencie
-Amusement Facilties
-Industrial Faciltieis
-Institutuional Facilties
-Volunteer Fire Companies-Fire Buff Organizationa-Memorial Rigs-Move Rigs

Definetly worth adding to a Firematic book collection, especially if you like apparatus or FDNY
I must also add, the binding of this book is done quite well.

Online, the book is available from:[url=][/url]
