Jefferson Township Fire Company No. 2 presents FDNY (Black Sunday The Bronx Fire

This presentation tells the story of the tragic day that the NYC Fire Department suffered on January 23, 2005 in the Bronx, NY.

A total of six firefighters were trapped above the fire floor in the rear of a tenement. To avoid getting caught in the flashover that was about to occur, the firefighters were forced to bail out windows without the help of ropes and fall five stories to the alley below. Two firefighters were tragically killed with the four other critically injured. Along with another fatal fire in Brooklyn, NY, the day is now known throughout the fire service as the Black Sunday's Bronx Fire.

The presentation gives a step-by-step, detailed experience of a fire that went from normal to unimaginable conditions in the blink of an eye. Numerous lessons are shared from this day from one of the firefighters that survived to talk about it, Eugene Stolowski. The presentation includes audio of the radio transmissions that day along with video and photos of the building.
