    IT IS WITH DEEP REGRET, That the City of Philadelphia Fire Department announces the line of duty deaths of Lieutenant Robert Neary and Firefighter Daniel Sweeney, of Ladder Company 10, who died as a result of injuries sustained while operating on box 5-5-361 Front and York Streets (AOF Jasper and York Streets) transmitted at 0313 hours on 9 April 2012. Godspeed to the fallen, their familes, and co-workers as well as other members injured at the same incident.

    May these fine men rest in peace. I know they leave behind a noble legacy at a fine fire department.

    Thumbs up Thank you!!

    I would like to thank all the brothers who came out for the viewings and funeral last night/today. I know from speaking to a few of the guys, we were all surprised at the turnout. Saw departments from as far as Edmonton, Montreal, Colorado, South Carolina, and so many more; and for every out-of-state attendee, there must have been dozens of guys from the surrounding counties. So proud to see all of them, and the dozens of local departments that were lining the procession route to the cemetery.

    I cannot speak for everyone in the PFD, but to a man, everyone I spoke to expressed the same feelings I feel. Seeing the turnout was a great morale booster, and we were awestruck at the brotherhood displayed. Thank you.

    It was touching send off, and I feel priviledged to have been allowed to take some of the weight of the grief off the backs of my brothers in PFD.
