As we enter our week of remembrance, please take a moment to pay tribute to those who gave of themselves so that others might live. 343 FDNY members, 23 NYPD, 37 Port Authority and 8 Voluntary EMTs and Paramedics. Let us also not forget that the struggle goes on. More than 2,500 Members of the FDNY, NYPD, EMS, and Sanitation are currently undergoing treatment for illnesses associated with this assignment. Many, have died since and many will die in the future. No asks for pity or special favors. We would all go again without hesitation should the need arise. But as you go through the week, look at the clear blue sky, and take a moment to reflect on the Duty, Sacrifice and Honor of those that put themselves on the line day in and day out.
