  3. A great friend,mentor and instructor. He had the answer to the problem regardless of what it was. He helped me understand fire science and how to apply it to firefighting and fire life safety. I was a student at Rockland Community College from 1994 to 1997 for an Associates in Fire Science. He was one of my Fire Science instructors. It was an honor to have known him and had the opportunity to gain the knowledge that so many in the FDNY had cause of him. Never forget!!

This was an effort to memorialize the 343 firefighters we lost on September 11, 2001. I completed a grueling CrossFit workout with your card at my station.
