When firefighters die in the line of duty, the entire fire service grieves. We look for ways to make sure their lives and their sacrifices are honored. We also want to ensure that the families, departments and friends of the fallen find comfort and resources they need to rebuild their lives.
On October 29th, join hundreds of other firefighters in New York to honor the fallen.
“Every day, here in New York City and across the country, firefighters go into harm’s way, through every obstacle and climbing every step needed to accomplish their life-saving mission,” said FDNY Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro. “The FDNY is proud to take part in this fitting tribute to every firefighter who has made the supreme sacrifice and to lend our support to the families they left behind.”
Firefighters will climb the equivalent of 110 stories to symbolize the number of floors in the Twin Towers. 15 years after the September 11th attacks, we will honor the 343 firefighter from FDNY, the 37 Port Authority Police officers, and the 23 NYPD officers who died that day.
