Denis Leary, star of FX Network's firefighter drama "Rescue Me" and founder of the Leary Firefighters Foundation, announced a partnership with Frigidaire appliances to help complete the restoration of New Orleans, LA, U.S. firehouses destroyed by Hurricane Katrina more than two years ago. The restoration project will enable firefighters to move out of temporary trailer homes and back into their stations. Plus, it serves as a major victory for the city, which will gain faster emergency response times and improved morale.

The New Orleans Fire Department lost 22 out of its 33 firehouses to flooding in Katrina's wake, and several of them have been revived by the Leary Firefighters Foundation since March 2007. Now, with a Frigidaire donation, the 11 remaining firehouses will be completed by 2008.

Eleven of the newly renovated kitchens will be outfitted with a full suite of Frigidaire Professional Series EasyCare Genuine Stainless Steel appliances, including a refrigerator, freestanding range, microwave, and icemaker. Each house also will receive three additional refrigerators, so off-duty firefighters have a place to store their food until their next shift. The laundry room will get a lift, as well, with Frigidaire Affinity front- loading washers and dryers.
