Washinghton Fire Company No. 1 held a ceremony yesterday to donate a fire engine to the Dry Valley Fire Department in Montevallo, Alabama. The donation was facilitated by the Terry Farrel Firefighters Fund, which was established in memory of Terry Farrell, a decorated member of Rescue 4 / FDNY and Chief of the Dix Hills Volunteer Fire Department. Terry, along with 342 of his brothers, perished on September 11, 2001 in the World Trade Center attack. Their fund assists firefighters and their families with educational, medical and equipment needs. Conshohocken Fire Company No. 2 and Plymouth Fire Company, along with some other departments, also donated equipment and supplies to Dry Valley.
In addition to the fire engine and supplies, Dry Valley Fire Department was presented with a piece of the South Tower of the World Trade Center. The piece of steel was going to be transported to Alabama aboard the donated fire truck. In a surprise to the Washington Fire Company, it was presented with a piece of steel from the North Tower.
