What is one of the things you're most proud of?   

A: We just dedicated a high-rise simulator here in New York, which is the first of its kind in North America. It's a facility that allows the New York City Fire Department to train for any kind of a high-rise situation, whether it be a fire or a terrorist attack, because up to this point they've never had the capability of training in advance for something that might happen in a skyscraper. So this facility has smoke and fire and adaptable layouts, so they can basically mimic any floor in any building in a high rise in New York City, and it's really, it's terrific. And it went right to work as soon as we opened it last week. They had 300 firefighters from all over the world, including Dublin and some other countries overseas, who came to train in it.
