    Rest in peace brother...you served us well!

    When I am called to duty, God
    Wherever flames may rage
    Give me the strength to save some life
    Whatever be its age.


    Help me embrace a little child
    Before it is too late
    Or save an older person from
    The horror of that fate.


    Enable me to be alert and
    Hear the weakest shout
    And quickly and efficiently
    To put the fire out.


    I want to fill my calling and
    To give the best in me
    To guard my every neighbor
    And protect their property.


    And if according to your will
    I have to lose my life
    Please bless with your protecting hand
    My children and my wife.

      Ramsy, NJ Brothers remember Mike

      By JANET FRANKSTON
      Associated Press Writer
      RAMSEY, N.J. (AP) - Michael Reilly's buddies at the volunteer
      rescue squad in his hometown were planning to present him with an
      old fire hydrant as a gift celebrating his recent graduation from
      the New York City fire academy.
      Instead, the rusty hydrant became the center of a makeshift
      memorial of candles, flowers and Reilly's rescue squad helmet
      outside the volunteer headquarters on Monday, a day after he died
      on the job in the Bronx, N.Y.
      The Ramsey native, who served as a Marine in Iraq, started his
      career as a 16-year-old volunteer in this town about 20 miles
      northwest of New York City. He had graduated from the academy on
      July 6.
      "Mike always wanted to be a fireman," said Erik Endress,
      president of the Ramsey Rescue Squad. "He knew it was dangerous."
      Scores of firefighters were called to the one-story Bronx
      building around 12:30 p.m. Sunday, and five of them became trapped
      in the basement after the ground floor gave way while they were
      searching for victims, authorities said. Lt. Howard Carpluk, 43,
      died Monday.
      Carpluk and Reilly were operating a hose line together when the
      floor gave out. Reilly was the nozzle man, directing where the
      spray of water went, and Carpluk was by his side supervising.
      Reilly, of Sleepy Hollow, N.Y., had joined the U.S. Marine Corps
      in 2000. He was a sergeant in the Marine Reserves.
      Endress described Reilly as a natural leader, a tough guy and
      the first person to rush out of the truck in an emergency. Endress
      said Reilly had always wanted to work in New York City.
      Many residents in the borough of 14,500 said they knew Reilly or
      his family, who still live in Ramsey.
      "He was a nice kid and had a good disposition," said Peter
      Reimer, who works in a hardware store on Main Street. "You don't
      like to see that, but unfortunately, it's part of the job."
      Mayor Michael Bloomberg recalled meeting Reilly at his
      graduation ceremony this year, shaking his hand and presenting him
      with a plaque. Bloomberg met with his parents and brother after
      Reilly died, and the family members told the mayor he had always
      wanted to be a firefighter.
      "I think they can be very proud that their son did what he
      wanted to do," Bloomberg said.

        Saw this poem on another site RIP FF Reilly

        Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free;
        I'm following the path God laid for me.
        I took His hand when I heard Him call,
        I turned my back and I left it all.
        I could not stay another day
        To laugh, to love, to work, or play.
        Tasks left undone must stay that way.
        I found that place at the close of day.
        If my parting has left a void,
        Then fill it with remembered joy
        A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
        Ah, yes, these things I, too, will miss.
        Be not burdened with times of sorrow;
        I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
        My life's been full; I savored much
        Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
        Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;
        Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
        Lift up your heart and share with me
        God wanted me now; He set me free.
        Tom

            The Montreal Firefighters Association will be chartering a bus for our members to attend the services in New York. We should be arriving on Friday morning, I was wondering if anyone could point us to a local firehouse and provide some contact information in the event we need a place to change etc. after the 8 hour ride.

            Our sympathies to the families and our fellow brothers.

                    Befitting tribute for a Veteran and a fellow Brother! Was with Mike's parents two weeks ago at the CT State Fire Academy Graduation where he attended 4 years ago, they have named an award in his honor!

                    Rest Easy Bro!

Please pass along this info to anyone that you think would be interested. We hope to keep Mikes legacy of helping others alive.
