This year the FDNY added 22 new names to its FDNY World Trade Center Memorial Wall, located in the FDNY headquarters in Brooklyn. The new names are of those who died from illnesses connected to their rescue efforts on 9/11. A total of more than 200 firefighters have died from 9/11-related diseases to date. The latest casualties were honored at a ceremony on Friday. The new additions to the wall come shortly after the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund was replenished.
