Please join Manchester L-789 as they compete in a friendly hockey game against Boston Firefighters Local 718 to raise money for the Boston Firefighters Burn Foundation! A foundation that has helped Captain Desruisseaux and his family so much the past 3 weeks, and will continue to help firefighters and their families from all over!
On November 6, 2021, Captain Steve DesRuisseaux of the City of Manchester, NH Fire Department received 3rd degree burns over 40% of his body while trying to rescue residents trapped in a multifamily building. DesRuisseaux was overcome with flames during a flashover, and a breathing device got caught on a ladder, trapping him as he dove out the window to escape the blaze. It was determined at a local hospital that second- and third-degree burns covered about 40% of his body. He was then flown to Mass General and is currently in recovery while being treated for his injuries. Capt. DeRuisseaux and his wife, Colleen have been married for 24 years. They have two children, Megan age 19 and Jack age 17.
"The actions of the crews last night went above and beyond the call of duty, and Captain DesRuisseaux's efforts were nothing short of heroic. Captain DesRuisseaux's actions led to the rescue of six people and is a true testament to Steve's professionalism," Battalion Chief Dave Flurey said in a statement.
We will be holding a fundraiser for Capt. Steve DesRuisseaux and matching all donations up to $10,000.
Please consider making a donation and supporting the DesRuisseaux Family in their time of need.
The McNeil family has established Memorial Scholarships in honor of Firefighter James A. McNeil.

As a young teenager, Jim always aspired to serve his community through the fire service. He first joined the Concord Fire Explorers Program where he transitioned to a member of the Loudon Fire Department. His love for the service, hard work ethic and pride, carried him to a 20-year career with the City of Manchester Fire Department. Jim was an individual that carried a lot of pride in everything he touched and thrived to find ways to make the lives of people better, both personally and professionally. This scholarship recipient should exemplify Jim’s characteristics of hard work ethic, pride, community involvement and the kind willingness to help people in general.
