My name is Mike Perrone. I retired from the FDNY back in November of 2014 with 33 years of service in the department. I retired out of the  "EAST NEW YORK TRUCKIN CO"  Ladder 175 East New York Brooklyn, where I served the last 25 years of my FDNY career. In September of 1981 I started my career in a Great Engine company, Engine 236, also located in East New York Brooklyn.  I then transferred in April of 1989 to what I believed at the time, and still believe even more so to this day, is the very best Truck Co on the job, Ladder 175.   I thank God and consider myself truly blessed to have had the opportunity to serve in two of the very best fire company's in the FDNY. I wish everyone reading this could have the same good fortune that I have had fighting fires along side of some of the greatest firefighters and friends anyone could ever ask for.

May God bless and protect you all.
