Our foundation will reflect the beliefs, dedication and spirit of its namesake, Timothy Stackpole, who believed it was our God-given mission that in times of trouble, grief, sorrow, trial and disaster, each of us has an obligation to reach out to help others, in any way we can.

ATLANTIC AVE FIRE- 18 years ago today - June 5th, 1998
Earlier this week some of our family and foundation board members had the privilege of working alongside the firefighters of L.175 and E.332 in sprucing up and planting at the memorial that is on the site of the Atlantic Ave. fire.

In 1998, the morning after this tragic fire and collapse, the city tore the building down and the lot was cleared. Some compassionate neighbors immediately placed a simple wooden cross and candles in respect for the lost and injured firemen. Years later, thanks to the Bradford Street firehouse, a more elaborate memorial was erected. It remains to this day a peaceful spot in the midst of a busy area.

So many lives were touched and changed forever by the events of that summer night, not only the families, but that of the first responders who were on duty.

We will never forget.

Our prayers and gratitude to the Blackmore and LaPiedra families today and always.
RIP Jimmy RIP Scott

Special thanks to L175 and E332, and Capt. John Saville for all of your help and friendship.

Thursday, December 17th, 2015 This morning we had the great honor of blessing and dedicating a vehicle to the FIRE FAMILY TRANSPORT FOUNDATION in memory of Timmy and Louie Valentino. Timmy and Louie were friends for many years and worked together both in Ladder 147 and later in Rescue 2. Louie was tragically killed on Feb 5, 1996 and of course, Timmy years later on Sept. 11, 2001. Both men would be thrilled to know that this vehicle will help transport injured or ill firefighters and their family members when needed. Sadly, there are many ill members since 9/11.
