After the September 11, 2001 terrorists’ attacks Louisiana citizens raised funds to replace fire equipment for FDNY. The first fire engine was named the “Spirit of Louisiana.” The truck was delivered in December, 2001.

FDNY sent 300 firefighters to assist Louisiana in response and recovery efforts after Hurricane Katrina. They sent “Spirit” back to New Orleans. Many fire trucks had been lost in the storm, The truck served the Crescent City until it was decommissioned in 2010.

 

“We are proud to be of help to our friends in New York as we have built such a family since 9-11. This fire truck was and continues to be our hands on the healing process,”  – Fire Marshal Butch Browning.

 

The truck was completely refurbished and transferred to the State Fire Marshal’s Office to be preserved and ready for future disasters.  State Fire Marshal Butch Browning and NOFD Fire Chief Charles Parent have decided to send “Spirit” to assist firefighters on Long Island. I guess what goes around really does come around.
