Engine 4 ” Wall Street Bulls” and Ladder 15 “High Rise Roof Team”

160624685_73feeb30bd

At the time Sergio graduated from the FDNY Academy, probationary firefighters would spend their first year at their assigned firehouse, then rotate through two more firehouses for a year each to learn about different techniques and increase their skill base. Sergio was assigned to Engine 4 at the South Street Seaport but was on rotation to Brooklyn’s Ladder 132 on September 11th. Even so, the brothers and sisters  at Engine 4 and Ladder 15 still claimed him as one of their own and he is listed with the others who made the ultimate sacrifice  from their company that day.

Words can never express the depths of our gratitude for the way the men and women from both firehouses have honored Sergio and taken care of us over the years- they will always be our extended family. Please click on the links below to get to know more about the heroes of Engine 4 and Ladder 15:
