33 FDNY Members Complete Counterterror Leadership Training

New York City Fire Commissioner Salvatore Cassano officiated at their June 7 graduation ceremony with Lt. Col. Reid L. Sawyer, director of the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point.

A June 7 graduation ceremony completed four months of graduate-level counterterrorism leadership training for 33 members of the Fire Department of New York. NYC Fire Commissioner Salvatore Cassano officiated with Lt. Col. Reid L. Sawyer, director of the Combating Terrorism Center at the United States Military Academy at West Point. They congratulated a class representing all five boroughs and including one firefighter, three EMS officers, 19 battalion chiefs, one assistant chief, and one deputy assistant chief.

"On May 1 in Times Square, we were all reminded once again of the very real threats our city faces every day," Cassano said. "As first responders, FDNY members are on the front line, defending New York City from terrorist attacks. The department's participation in the West Point Counterterrorism Leadership Program is part of our commitment to always be prepared to combat these terrorist threats."

The center was created in 2003. This course has been offered to FDNY members for six years, with 206 of them graduating thus far.
