EAST END MEMBERS TRAVEL TO GROUND ZERO
Firefighters across the country continue to mourn the deaths of 343 FDNY Bravest after the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York City. Due to the shear number of funerals and memorial services, the FDNY is being stretched thin and is requesting firefighters from around the region to attend as many services as possible.
On October 15, 2001, nine East End members made the trip to New York for the memorial service of Engine Co. 4 Captain Joseph Farrelly. The service was held on the North shore of Staten Island and was well attended.
After the service, the members traveled to Battery Park City, otherwise known as "Ground-Zero" where they received an NYPD escort throughout the devastated area. Members shook hands with their FDNY brothers still working at the former site of the Trade Centers. A few pictures of the trip can be viewed in the slideshow below.
Upon returning from New York, the members of East End memorialized Captain Farrelly by placing a customized 9-11 decal just in front of the driver's door. It reads: "Captain Joseph Farrelly, Engine Co. 4, 9-11-01."
