    Rest easy brother, you will be forever missed.

  • As a neighbor served by Engine 6’s Firehouse, I just want to say how sorry I am at Lt. McRae’s death and how much I appreciate and respect the work he did and his colleagues continue to do. His procession just went down NJ Ave, and I wish we could have filled the streets for him and to let his family know just how important his life’s work is to all of us.

    I’m sorry if I missed it, but I would really appreciate knowing if the family or the union has set up a fund for his family.
