This classic photo was taken on Fire Safety Day at St. Francis de Sales in Mrs. Lindner’s class in 1994. (We knew Mrs. Lindner would be able to dig up the original photo after someone sent us a mimeograph copy). The firefighters lined up behind their children (two of whom are now firefighters themselves!) From left to right that’s Jill Brady with her dad, Kenny; young Tom McVeigh and his dad, Tom; Kristi-Lee Moore with Joe, her dad; James Hayden with his father, Jack and Caitlin Hynes with her dad, Walter. Tom McVeigh and James Hayden have followed their dads into the FDNY. In the second photo, Mrs. Lindner looked ready to fight a fire as she put on a turnout coat and wielded a Halligan tool. She’s pictured with Joe Moore and Walter Hynes who died some seven years later on 9/11.
