Welcome to the website of the September 11th Families’ Association. Learn more about us, our accomplishments and the resources available to the September 11th community.

Our prayers are with all those affected by the terrorist attack in Lower Manhattan.

We at the September 11th Families’ Association are very sad to learn of the passing of FDNY Lt. Paul Geidel on October 31, 2017. Paul’s son, FF Gary Geidel, was killed in the terrorist attack at the World Trade Center. Paul became one of the “Band of Dads” searching for their sons and other victims together. Paul’s firefighter son Ralph died of September-11th-related illness, as did Paul.
