    My boyfriend is in New York helping out the other firefighters during this tragic time. He is from Indiana and our thoughts and prayers are with all the firefighters who are there for support and to help in anyway.
    Our condolescences go out to the families that have lost loved ones and also to the people who are away from their families.
    Corey take care and come home safe.

    Ladies & Gentlemen,

    I wasn't sure what to say on my reply. Being a college student and Sam's Club employee, not a member of an FD or PD, I wasn't sure that I should reply on this forum.
    But I am the son of a former volunteer firefighter and being a future Arson Investigator, I decided not to hesitate, to send my condolences to DC and NYC. To the FDNY, NYPD, NYEMS, DCFD, (ETC.) and all those who rushed to their sides to dig through the rubble and cover them at their posts. I would also like to send my sympathy to all the victims and their families.
    As an American, I am shaken, sad, and angry about the events of the 11th of September. I stand with you all and support our Nation and our Firefighters after these attacks on our way of life.
    Keep the Flag flying and stay safe America..

    I sit here with a profound sense of anguish. The loss of so many brothers and sisters in public safety(fire service,law enforcement,ems,etc.)has caused a tremendous ache in my heart. I pray that GOD will touch each and every one. I ask for his healing for each of us.
    To those of us on the front line in Washington and New York, know that you have the support, respect and admiration from those of us all across the nation. We are with you in spirit even though we can not be there in person.
    Words seem so inadequate to express what I feel.
    Take my strength when you feel that you are done in; it's all that I can give you from here. I would gladly give more if I could be there to work beside you.
    I don't know what else to say other than we're all with you.

    A few weeks ago while on a trip to Baltimore we had the opportunity to meet a group of NY City Fireman who had come to Baltimore for the baseball game. We had breakfast at the Day's Inn Inner Harbor hotel where they all came in and we talked with a couple of them. They were a great bunch of guys fighting hung over and the likes! One of the men told us they were the second station to respond to the bombing of the Trade center in 1993. I can only assume they again were the second to respond yesterday. I do not remember their station # and have called the hotel trying to find out. The hotel knows but due to privacy laws could not tell me. One of our local firemen told me about your web site. I was hoping maybe you could help me identify the station these guys belong to. They were in Baltimore Friday, August 24, Saturday August 25 and left Sunday August 26 and as I said they stayed at the Days Inn Inner Harbor Hotel on Hopkins St. whose phone # is 410-576-1000. I would l! ike to contact these men's station if possible to find out their condition and give any support I can. I did not "know" these guys but their spirit and love of life touch me. Any help you could give me in locating them would be appreciated.

    And to all Fire, EMS and Law Enforcement who have risked their life and given their lives during this tragedy, Thank from myself, my family and our country.

    Dear Sir/Madam


    I was hoping to get a message from us here in New Zealand to all fellow
    firefighters and emergency service workers and their families who have lost
    their lives and working brothers and sisters during the despicable events by
    Terrorists in New York and Washington. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to them
    all and we feel for all those who have lost friends and brother
    professionals.

    We in New Zealand are totally unbelieving and horrified by such an attack on
    all Americans and the free world by such cowards who have created such
    mayhem by attacking innocent people

    We know America will never buckle to these people and support that approach
    fully.

    I'm saddened to say that I have but one more name to add to the list.
    The body of Carlos Lillo an FDNY-EMS Paramedic from Battalion 49 in
    Queens and a good friend was recovered at 09:00 hours on 09/12/01. He
    was a 15 year paramedic who leaves behind a wife and family. Although I
    am positive this is confirmed please seek confirmation from others.

    Thank you,

    Chris Lefkaditis
    Paramedic

    All of us in the fire service feel helpless today and want to show our
    respect and wishes. I saw your note about red, white and blue ribbons but am
    asking for your help by doing a little more.

    I am asking everyone I know to display a red or blue light (or both) to
    honor our fallen brothers and sisters as well as our fellow police officers,
    EMTs, and Paramedics. With Firehouse.com being a premier source to the fire
    service help me spread the word nationally.

    >From all of us at Victoria State Emergency Service Portland Unit Australia,
    We as a volunteer dedicated rescue agency send our thoughts, prayers, and
    best wishes to all those in New York that have been touched by this
    tragedy. Words can't describe what has happened, and our thoughts can't
    accept what we are seeing and hearing on our television screens in
    Australia.
    As we awoke in Australia Tuesday morning to witness the devastation on our
    television screens, and our immediate thoughts were of shock, Horror and
    disbelief at the loss of so many lives including those of our fellow
    rescuers.
    Our hearts go out to you and may God keep the rest of you safe and help
    heal the wounds over time

    I worked as a paramedic on the Lower East Side of Manhattan from 1984-86. I know from experience that that the FDNY is not only New York's Bravest, but the world's bravest. My thoughts and prayers are with them during this
    difficult time.

    NOT Just Another Call

    Firemen hurried one and all

    They geared up and moved out, no time to spare,

    As sirens pierced through the morning air,

    It was a duty, a calling, their passion, their way,

    To save the public from their darkest day,

    Out of habit they work without fear, without fret,

    Now these heroes are ones we’ll never forget.



    I wonder if they reflected on the hope their lives gave,

    On this day when it was only God who could save,

    To the soul mates, I hug you and join you in your tears,

    On this day when reality has overcome our fears,

    But know they will be with us in spirit, in love,

    They’ll be watching and guiding from high above.



    To the children, though this grief may now seem to great,

    Know that your Mothers & Fathers have a hero’s fate,

    Know they’ll still be there in every possible way,

    Let their memory bring you joy each and every day.



    To the parents be proud of what they’ve done,

    Think of all the lives they touched,

    Take comfort in the fact that they love you so much.



    To the siblings, grandparents, grandchildren, friends,

    To the aunts, uncles, cousins that they loved to the end,

    Know that their lives were not taken in vain,

    Let pride in all they’ve done, take the place of your pain.



    To their “brothers & sisters” who shared in that calling,

    Don’t feel guilt or regret as your tears are falling,

    But feel honor and appreciation for all that you do,

    Stand strong, stand together, and let that strength help you through.



    To God with who these men and women have now gone,

    Know that recollections of these lives on Earth will live on,

    Please bring peace to the hearts that are suffering today,

    As they wonder how to go on, please show them the way.



    And the firemen, whose lives have been lost,

    Know that we recognize your work and its cost,

    Thank You for all you’ve helped and you’ve saved,

    For the time and the love, and the lives that you gave.
