Over the next few months, the Allen Fire Department and Fire Station 5 in cooperation with the Allen Professional Firefighters Association will serve as “home base” for Rescue 4, one of the trucks that was at ground zero.
Rescue Truck 4 is one of the trucks decommissioned from the New York Fire Department after having served during the September 11, 2001 attacks. These have now been equipped as part of the Remembrance Rescue Project to be used as living memorials to educate, honor and remember the events of 9/11 and all firefighters killed in the line of duty throughout the country every year.
Here are just a few of the upcoming events planned for our area:
- Allen Americans preseason game: October 13
- Allen Eagles Varsity Football game: October 19
- Allen Americans regular season game: November 16
- Dallas Sidekicks regular season game: November 3
Events and times are subject to change. Make sure to check their Facebook page at Facebook.com/affa3453 for detailed program information or visit www.AllenFire.org. If your organization would like more information on scheduling Rescue 4, please contact Ben Hardy or Jeremy Painkin.
