A message from our Executive Director

A message from our Executive Director, Nancy Carbone, on the 12th anniversary of 9/11:

“As the years pass, we pause on 9/11 to remember those lost and those irrevocably changed by the events of that day. Friends of Firefighters was created to address the long term needs of the FDNY community, ever changing as they have been. There have been losses since 9/11, and unfortunately we continue to losemembers due to illnesses related to the disaster. We honor our Bravest and continue our mission to support them as they continue their mission to save lives.”

FoF is open as usual today. We will be offering our regular services and also welcome you to drop by to say hi or have a cup of coffee. We urge you to reach out to us if you need to speak with someone.
