On the last Friday in June, our New York City team put on Able t-Shirts and got to work at the Official Museum of the New York Fire Department (FDNY).

The Able team performed a variety of deep cleaning tasks that allowed the museum to focus on its historic and educational mission; sharing the honor and tradition of the FDNY.

Built in 1904, the museum is visited by over 40,000 people every year and contains artifacts that document the history of the volunteer and paid departments, from painted leather buckets to early motorized apparatus. A separate memorial exhibit honors the 343 members of FDNY-EMS who made the Supreme Sacrifice on September 11, 2001.

"Every once in a while, the wear and tear on the museum requires the expertise of a company like Able Services to help us shine....thank you very much for donating your time, equipment and energy to making the NYC Fire Museum shine like a brand-new fire engine!!" - Gary Urbanowicz, Executive Director, Official Museum of FDNY

Applauding the coordinated volunteer effort, regional vice president, Paul Magda said:

“I would like to thank our local team who attended the service event at the New York City Fire Museum. The teamwork displayed on this volunteer clean-up project was outstanding and a true example of Able’s culture. I would also like to commend Allan Escobar and Lexi Weinberg for the superb planning and coordination of this volunteer team event. It gives us a sense of satisfaction to share our cleaning expertise with the NYFD.”
