Captain Eric Kuck, a former New Yorker, contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if we were going to make a larger image of the 9/11 Patch decal for apparatus.
It just so happened that the company that wrapped the FireCareers.com bus for the 9/11 Anniversary Manhattan to Manhattan Tour, had the image as it was used to cover the front of the bus prior to the tour. The company stepped up and created this commercial grade decal for us in the 8.5" X 11" size. Once these were ready to go, I contacted Eric and we met at his station today. The decal was first put on their Squad on the driver side and there are plans to place the decals on all apparatus--including a right sided version which insures the stars of the flag are leading and the strips trailing.
It always takes at least one individual to lead the charge to get this done--especially in such a large department--so thank you Captain Kuck!
The decals along with other patches, decals and full size flags are available here: 9/11 Patches-Decals
