McElligott Honored by Department

McElligott Honored by Department

John J. McElligott, Commissioner of the New York Fire Department, was presented recently with a fully equipped office and with a beautiful official badge of the office of Fire Chief and Commissioner by officers and men of the department. The presentation was made by Deputy Fire Chief John J. McCarthy. In the official department order, Commissioner McElligott wrote:

“The fact that every member of the department participated in this manifestation, renders it all the more dear to me, because it brings out the thought that I too am still a fireman: somewhat more fortunate perhaps than my colleagues, but nevertheless, a member of the greatest organization of its kind in the world.”
