FDNY Holds Manhattan Boroughwide Plaque Dedication Ceremony

On Wednesday, July 28, FDNY Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro presided over a Manhattan Boroughwide Plaque Dedication Ceremony in honor of 16 FDNY members who bravely served the Department in Manhattan.

Commissioner Nigro said, “We have a deeper appreciation for these gatherings as they were stolen from us last year during the COVID-19 pandemic. And that’s because in the Fire Department, one of our greatest traditions is our ability to gather together, to celebrate, to mourn, to inspire, and to honor and remember those we have lost. Today, we achieve each of those duties as we honor 16 of our members whose lives were cut far too short. They were Firefighters, Fire Officers, EMTs, and Paramedics. Each made an impact in their firehouse or EMS Station, saving lives, protecting life and property, and providing outstanding emergency medical care. To all our families here today, know that our gratitude to your loved ones will never fade and neither will their wonderful spirits. The indelible impacts they leave behind will never be forgotten.”

Battalion Chief James Costello, Battalion 4 
Firefighter Harry L. Davis, Squad 18 
Firefighter Anthony Alese, Engine 9
