FDNY to keep honoring 9/11-related deaths on separate memorial

The FDNY  has announced that they will not change their controversial decision to place the names of those who die of World Trade Center-related cancers and other illnesses on a memorial that is separate from the line of duty death memorial. Many firefighters and families of the sick and of the dead disagree, writes Susan Edelman in the NY Post. 

The NYPD puts the names of their officers who die of site-related illnesses on their line-of-duty memorial.

FDNY Chief of Department Daniel Nigro has also said that the FDNY will not send out the citywide “5-5-5-5 radio notification” for any firefighters who die of 9/11 illnesses.

“We have reserved that profound signal for announcing ‘traditional’ line of duty deaths,” he said.
