FDNY Lt. Joseph P. DiBernardo was passionate about improving his firefighting skills. He responded to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and spent 6 months working in the recovery effort.

DiBernardo Memorial Foundation hosts firefighters from around the US at training seminars run by some of the greatest experts in firefighting, including Chief Joseph DiBernardo, Joey’s dad, and FF Jeff Cool, who offered Joey his safety rope on Black Sunday and was injured with him.
