On a beautiful, sunny Saturday morning, Lucretia Regina-Potter, Republican District Leader 46 AD, and the President of the Fiorello LaGuardia Republican Organization paid a visit to Engine 242, “The Guardians of the Narrows”, in celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the founding of the New York City Fire Department.
Friends, neighbors, and excited children with their parents all enjoyed visiting with the firefighters. Many children ventured onto the fire truck and sat in awe inside the big rig. They were offered nutritious snacks, beverages, firefighter-coloring books, and bracelets. The hit of the day were the bright red junior firefighter hats! Adults were offered free carbon monoxide detectors, literature on fire safety, and a chance to congratulate and thank their local firefighters.

“I am so happy to be here to support my local firefighters, they do so much in the community and it is wonderful that everyone has the opportunity to meet them and thank them personally, especially on their 150 Anniversary!” stated Lucretia. A good time was had by all, with many attendees indicating they would like the FDNY to hold more open house events in the near future.
Congratulations and Thank You FDNY!
