Brotherhood: Life in the FDNY

Brotherhood focuses on Squad 252, in "Borough of Fire" Brooklyn, and the prestigious Rescue Company 1, of Manhattan, and Rescue Company 4, of Queens. From an insider's point of view, the film vividly captures their pecking order, extroverted personalities, uncompromised respect for fires, teamwork, commitment to training and enviable camaraderie. Through the use of a hidden "firefighter cam" the filmmaker even brings the audience into the middle of their work - involving them in the dramatic rescue of an entire family from a burning brownstone. As the film reveals, they are committed to carrying on the expertise, loyalty and traditions that have been passed down for generations, but are still struggling to rebuild their companies. And, while their basic mission - to protect citizens and property - is the backbone of the profession, their job is in the midst of radical change.
