NEW YORK (AP) — Twelve members of the New York Fire Department who died from illnesses related to work at the World Trade Center after the Sept. 11 attacks have been memorialized.
The FDNY says Friday the 12 names were engraved on small plaques that were added to 64 others on the World Trade Center Memorial Wall at the department’s Brooklyn headquarters.
The 12 male FDNY members whose names were added to the wall were a deputy assistant chief of emergency medical services, a battalion chief, two lieutenants, five firefighters, a paramedic and two emergency medical technicians.
The memorial wall was unveiled in September 2011.
An inscription on the wall dedicates it to the memory of members of the department who died in the rescue and recovery effort at the World Trade Center.
