World Trade Center Artwork Unveiling

IAFF Local 1762 Mercer Island, extends a formal invitation to a ceremony unveiling a public art tribute to professionals involved in community safety and the 343 New York firefighters who gave their lives to save others on September 11, 2001. 

The dedication is scheduled for 10:30 am on July 18, 2015, at 8473 SE 68th Street immediately following the opening ceremony of the City of Mercer Island’s new Fire Station 92.

Designed to stand at the entrance of the new fire station, the artwork is crafted from the final World Trade Center (WTC) artifact to be released by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. As the artifact was trucked by semi-trailer across the country last summer, it generated significant attention and made stops at numerous fire stations in many states, including a stop at our WSCFF convention in Spokane last summer, before receiving a formal reception on Mercer Island

Seattle-based artists John Sisko and Jim Brown intend the sculpture to serve as a source of conversation and not as a memorial.  The City of Mercer Island Arts Council funded acquisition and construction of the sculpture, which is made from a 15-ton I-beam and concrete component of the WTC’s parking garage.

This is a formal event, Class A uniforms recommended for firefighters.  It is our hope that firefighters from across Washington, and from other states, will be in attendance.  The McAleese Family, longtime residents of Mercer Island and owners of Kells Irish Pub in downtown Seattle, welcome all for a party following the ceremony. 

Please email IAFF Local 1762 Vice President Kent Bastrom with questions at firekent@msn.com

Fill The Boot! Sixty Years and Going Strong!

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the partnership between the IAFF and the Muscular Dystrophy Association.  Since 1954, when a father of two boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy asked his fire fighter friend to help, the IAFF has raised over half a billion dollars to fund summer camps for kids with muscle diseases, and to work towards finding a cure for these muscle diseases.
