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.
