New York's rescue companies are elite firefighters with a mission: to save fellow firefighters or civilians. In this riveting narrative, Tom Downey goes inside Brooklyn's Rescue 2, one of the best and busiest rescue companies in the world. We begin in the mid-nineties, when a new captain, Phil Ruvolo, arrives at the firehouse. From the moment he steps in the door, he is faced with stubborn vets loyal to former leader Ray Downey, aka God. A new Rescue 2 is forged through blazes that have now become legendary. Through the crisis of 9/11 and the subsequent rebuilding, Ruvolo triumphantly fills the late Downey's boots, heading the Rescue toward a future worthy of its past, its heroes, its city. Rescue 2 doesn't leave a fire until everybody's safe - they're the last men out. These firemen are an unforgettable of gritty, larger-than-life personalities, and Tom Downey's book is a new firefighting classic.
