This park honors Christopher John Siedenburg (1969-1994) a dedicated Staten Island fireman. A lifelong resident of Great Kills, he saw fighting fires as the finest expression of his greatest goal, helping people. Throughout his time at Monsignor Farrell High School and his two years at the College of Staten Island, Siedenburg worked as a newspaper carrier, restaurant worker, lifeguard, and at several other jobs. He then joined the Volunteer Heart Resuscitation Unit of Staten Island (VHRU) and trained as a State Emergency Medical Technician. The many hours that he devoted to the VHRU each week earned him both awards and recognition.
