Co. 134 Remembers Deceased Firefighter



For the last month memorial bunting, in honor of deceased firefighter William Quick, hung over the door of Ladder Company 134 at Far Rockaway’s Big House. Quick, 55, served with Ladder 134 for 23 years. He retired in 2003 after developing lung disease as a result of working at Ground Zero for more than three months after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Quick died on January 18 after a nine year battle with lung disease. According to an FDNY source, the bunting was to be removed this week.
