Capt. John Fischer

101 Fischer fb

John Fischer, 46 was posthumously promoted to Captain on September 17th.  This father of three “was always coaching.” He never particularly cared if the teams won, but that everyone had a chance to play and that the lessons of good sportsmanship were learned. He also had a well-deserved reputation as a chef, both in the firehouse and at home where he often hosted as many as 60 family members for holiday dinners.

Battalion 2 will be completed with the addition of Ladder 20, also called the “Soho Trucking Company.” Based with Rescue 6 and the Division 1 HQ and located just a half mile from the WTC site, they were one of the first companies to respond. Ladder 20 lost seven men that day.
