Brooklyn Bridge March & City Hall Rally to Save FHs

The UFA and UFOA would like to thank all efforts put forth by the members for the large turnout for our joint 'Save the Firehouses' march over the Brooklyn Bridge and City Hall Rally on June 3rd. 1,000 members with elected officials and community leaders marched over the bridge and an estimated 10,000+ Firefighters, Fire Officers and civilian supporters filled up the rally area along Broadway from Barclay Street all the way up to Chambers Street. Extensive favorable media coverage was generated as a result of the great turnout by the membership and all our supporters.
