FDNY members past and present gathered at the quarters of Rescue 1 on March 8 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the country’s first rescue company.

“The members of Rescue 1 answers the call for help without fail,” Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said. “Your dedication and commitment was established a century ago and will continue for the next 100 years.”

Firefighters at the company respond to numerous emergencies throughout the city, including large-scale incidents like the East Harlem gas explosion in March 2014 and the window washers trapped outside 1 World Trade Center in November 2014.

“This is a celebration of everything that makes the Department so special,” said Chief of Department James Leonard.

Members of the firehouse have earned more than 60 medals and dozens of citations for bravery.

And 15 members of the company have died in the line of duty over the last century, including 11 on Sept. 11, 2001.

“The actions of the members here show their commitment to the people of New York,” Rescue 1 Capt. Rex Morris said. “And their knowledge and training will passed on and will continue to set the standard as we move into the next 100 years.”

During the ceremony Manhattan Borough President Gayle Brewer presented the firehouse with a proclamation, officially naming March 8 “Rescue Company 1 Day” in Manhattan.
