FDNY K-9 named for Hudson Valley Fire Marshal Ronald Bucca, who was killed on 9/11, named top dog

FDNY K-9 Bucca, named for FDNY Fire Marshal Ronald P. Bucca, won the Accelerant Detection division last week at the United States Police Canine Association’s 2019 National Detector Dog Trials.

Bucca and his human partner, Fire Marshal Joseph DiGiacomo, work for the FDNY Bureau of Fire investigations. Bucca was originally a stray, who has worked with Fire Marshal DiGiacomo for two years, reports Zak Failla for the Daily Voice.

An FDNY fire dog named for a former Fire Marshal from the Hudson Valley who made the supreme sacrifice on September 11, 2001 is making a name for himself.

Fire Marshal Ronald P. Bucca was a resident of Tuckhoe and a 23-year veteran of the FDNY. He was killed responding to the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
