Last week, the FDNY added 18 new names to its FDNY World Trade Center Memorial Wall, located in the FDNY headquarters in Brooklyn. The new names have all died from illnesses connected to their rescue efforts on 9/11, with a total of 177 firefighters have lost their lives from 9/11-related diseases to date. At the ceremony on September 6th, Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro said, “This is a day to remember and honor these incredible people who took part in an unprecedented rescue and recovery effort for our Department. Each of the 18 members served bravely, they showed the utmost courage in the face of an evil attack on our city, and true compassion in the face unimaginable devastation. As we pay tribute to these 18 members, their memory lives on.”
