FDNY 343 Ride Stops at Lynbrook Firehouse

Story and Photos by Ex-Captain Steve Grogan


On Sunday, September 17, 2017, a large contingent of NYC firefighters rode through Lynbrook during their "7th Annual FDNY343 Ride" from the Freedom Tower in Lower Manhattan to Montauk. The firefighters made a brief stop at Lynbrook's Vulcan Company firehouse at Denton Avenue and Merrick Road for refreshments before continuing on.  The bicyclist were led by a group of Fire Rider motorcycles and a police escort.  They will arrive in Montauk on Monday afternoon. The FDNY 343 Ride, which remembers the 343 firefighters killed on 9-11, was started to raise money for severely wounded soldiers coming home from war. This year the FDNY firefighters hope to purchase new TrackChairs at $16,000 each, which are all terrain wheel chairs for deserving wounded warriors. The bike riders make the stop at Vulcan's firehouse each year.
