Thirty-two Names Added to WTC Memorial Wall

FDNY added 32 names to it last week, members of the department who have died from illnesses related to their search and rescue work on 9/11 -- 16 years ago today.

The New York Fire Department (FDNY) and family members added the names of 32 departmental members who died of illnesses related to their work in the rescue and recovery effort at the World Trade Center on 9/11 to the FDNY World Trade Center Memorial Wall. The ceremony took place Sept. 7 at FDNY Headquarters in Brooklyn.

As a result, the wall now bears the names of 159 individuals who have died of those illnesses.

"The members we honor on our World Trade Center Memorial Wall worked tirelessly in support of the rescue and recovery efforts of the 343 heroes and thousands of innocent victims killed on September 11th," said Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro. "The 32 members we remember this year were without question brave – they were dedicated and compassionate – and they performed their duties, selflessly, and courageously."

NIOSH manages the World Trade Center Health Program, which provides medical monitoring and treatment for responders to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York City, at the Pentagon, and near Shanksville, Pa., and for survivors in the New York City Disaster Area.

The 32 names are available here.
