New York Fire Department Adds 43 Names to 9/11 Memorial 

Flag gardens are expected across the country as people remember the tragedy. 

The New York City Fire Department has added 43 names to the World Trade Center Memorial Wall this year. It is the second largest group of names to be added to the memorial wall since it was established in 2011. The 43 members of the New York Fire Department all died from illnesses related to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. 

“As we approach the 22nd anniversary of 9/11, the FDNY continues to feel the impact of that day. Each year, this memorial wall grows as we honor of those who gave their lives in service of others,” said Fire Commissioner Laura Kavanagh. “These brave men and women showed up that day, and in the days and months following the attacks to participate in the rescue and recovery efforts at the World Trade Center site. We will never forget them.” 

A total of 343 FDNY personnel died on 9/11. They have lost nearly that number since then from illnesses that stem from that day. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For U.S. federal, state, and local officials as they participate in remembrances of those lost on 9/11.
  • For the families who lost loved ones in the attacks and as a result of the rescue and recovery efforts.
  • For Americans to remember and seek the Lord for guidance for this nation.
