District Manager Carl Thomas supervised the installation of our new air compressor system. This state of the art equipment will be used to fill the breathing air (SCBA) bottles used by our firefighters.
We held two ceremonies on 9/11 - morning and evening. The evening ceremony was moved from the 9/11 Memorial into Fire Headquarters due to the rain. Thanks to Greg Gottlieb for the pictures.
On September 11, 2001 all of our lives were shattered when radical Islamic terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and when brave Americans fought with the terrorist hijackers aboard United flight 93, bringing it down in Shanksville, PA before the plane could reach Washington, DC.
2,753 men and women died at the WTC, including 343 members of the FDNY and 71 members of law enforcement.
184 were killed at The Pentagon and 40 more were killed in the crash of United Airlines Flight 93 in Shanksville, PA.
In the 21 years since, the death toll continues to rise as a result of the various ailments and diseases attributed to this cowardly attack on our Nation.
The Hauppauge Fire Department lost two of it's members during the attacks - Peter Brennan, Company 1 - (Chief of Department, Posthumously) and Raymond Meisenheimer, Truck Company - (Chief of Department, Posthumously).
We also lost Ex-Captain Michael Tufarella, Engine Company 4 due to 9/11 related illness and FF Jack Hough, Engine Company 1 due to 9/11 related illness. Both of these brave men had worked the pile at the attack site in lower Manhattan.
