The FDNY Foundation joined the FDNY in honoring 22 members who died of illnesses related to their work in the rescue and recovery efforts at the World Trade Center. Their names were added to the FDNY World Trade Center Memorial Wall on Friday, September 6th, at FDNY Headquarters.
“What would have seemed unimaginable then, is our harsh reality now – that the number of FDNY lives claimed continues to grow, well beyond 343, with no end in sight. To date, more than 200 men and women who responded that day, and who worked in the dangerous and painful rescue and recovery effort that followed, have lost their lives. Every few weeks, or many times a month, we learn from a friend or a former colleague that yet another member has succumbed to illness. Our Department gathers, we mourn, and we renew our promise to Never Forget,” said FDNY Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro.
Those to be added to the memorial wall are:
Firefighter Anthony Alese, Engine Company 9
