Slideshow: Remembering the 343 fallen FDNY heroes of 9/11

As we approach the anniversary of the September 11 attacks, each day we will be adding brief biographies and pictures in honor of the 343 Fire Department of the City of New York firemen that gave their lives 18 years ago. “Everyone here will tell you he’s not a hero,” one FDNY survivor said, “everyone here will tell you he’s doing his job.” These men went into a burning building that many understood they would not be walking back out of, but they still went in and did their job.

They gave their lives so that 30,000 people could be saved.

Watch the slideshow, or click below for a list of all 343 sorted by company with links to each fireman’s bio.

Please be patient as this tribute is under development and will be complete by 11 September 2020.
