On Sept. 11, 2001, the men of the FDNY’s HazMat 1 and Squad 288 in Maspeth sped into Manhattan to help the victims in the World Trade Center attacks.

Nineteen would never come home, the largest total from any one station in the attack that killed 343 FDNY firefighters.

Their family, friends, and some admirers who never knew them came out on 9/11 to remember them, as they have done in Maspeth on every anniversary since the attacks.

Welcome to the discussion.
