“Old School Firemen” (circa 1978) has been making the rounds on various social media sites this past week. Pictured left to right: FF Tom Hammond (L120), FF Pete Lund (L120), FF Kevin McCarthy (L120), Captain Paul Jetter (L120), and FF Charlie Hayes (L120).
FF Pete Lund went on to be a highly respected Lieutenant in FDNY Rescue 3 before retiring a few years after 9/11. Although retired, Lt Lund would make the Supreme Sacrifice after battling a fire with the Woodmere Fire Department. His contributions to the Fire Service dedicated towards training and safety continue to be felt nationwide. FF Charlie Hayes (who was also taken from us way too early) went on to become a beloved senior member of L120 before being promoted to Lieutenant and is a man whose presence resonates throughout our Firehouse.
