SD FDNY Retired An organization of former FDNY who volunteer as hosts with the USS Midway Museum for the premier 9/11/01 Memorial on the West coast. Keeping the promise to Never Forget!
(2)

SD FDNY RETIRED are retired members of the FDNY who volunteer as hosts of a very special 9/11 Memorial Remembrance Ceremony. The Memorial Service is conducted on the flight deck of the historic aircraft carrier, the USS Midway CVS 41. The use of this incredible venue has been made possible for the last 12 years, thanks to the Retired Rear Admiral John McLaughlin and his staff. The Memorial tribute is dedicated specifically to the heroic First Responders and Airline crew members that gave their lives on 9/11/01. Each First Responder will be remembered, including their rank and company. If you will be in attendance and wish to participate in the name reading, please contact us via email, prior to Aug 30th at [email protected]. Free admission to the USS Midway Museum and ceremony will be granted to all attendees, starting at 1:00 pm. Class “A’s” are recommended, but not required. This year, E202 & L101 will be recognized as the guests of honor. Previously honored companies include: E33 & L9, E280 & L132, E22 & L13 and E16 & L7. The FDNY Retirees of SD are also welcoming members from local Fire and Police departments, Active/Retired Military and the Wounded Warrior Project to pay tribute. Immediately following the memorial ceremony, there will be a dinner reception at San Diego’s Pioneer Hook and Ladder Firehouse Museum, in the nearby “Little Italy” section of downtown San Diego. Additional group activities will be scheduled with the honored guests as the event draws closer. Please contact the group email with any other questions, concerns or requests. You may also find/follow us on Twitter and Instagram @SDFDNYRETIRED.

Local 145 President Makes Heart Felt Plea Before SD City Council Considers Firefighter Death & Disability Benefits

All cities in California provide a death and disability benefit to firefighters killed or permanently disabled in the line of duty, all cities except San Diego.

We can not allow our Firefighters to continue risking their life’s unprotected. We have never worked so hard for a benefit that we hope to never use. We are confident that the City Council will do the right thing and restore these benefits to our firefighters

The Senate passed the Firefighter Cancer Registry Act this week. This is a huge victory for IAFF fire fighters as we have encouraged members of Congress to support legislative efforts to establish better preventative measures and treatment of cancer among fire fighters. The legislation received bi-partisan support from lawmakers and directs the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to collect data on cancer incidences among fire fighters.

We always mourn the loss of any brother or sister in uniform that dedicates their life to the service of others. We offer our deepest sympathies and prayers to the family and loved ones of this retired New Orleans Firefighter. We can all only hope to leave behind a legacy and obituary that speaks to who we were in our time on earth. But this obituary sets the bar.... Thank you Mr. Ziegler for your service in this life and sense of humor from the next one.
