Jackson Station 55 Firefighter’s Honor 9/11 Fallen Heros

Two of Station 55’s finest members set off on a journey early 09/11/2016. Firefighter Andrew Reaves and Firefighter Ivon Laboy wanted to pay respect and homage to those who answered their final call on that early Tuesday morning September 11’th 2001. Firefighters Reaves and Laboy were driven up to The World Trade Center Memorial in Lower Manhattan, and bicycled all the way back to Jackson Station 55’s main building. Showing selflessness and brotherhood at it’s finest. Congratulations to both Firefighters on accomplishing this task and thank you for your unlimited dedication to service. Astonishing work gentlemen.

Thank You All
