I'm sure that all members of my Department will want to express condolances to all FDNY families on this day. Be they Paid or Volunteer we have lost valuable comrades to a coward known as terrorism! :(
May God be with us all, and especially with the families of all our fallen brothers and sisters in New York.
From all of us here in Tooele County Utah, we wish to offer our prayers, condolences and most ardent support for our brothers and sisters in both New York and Washington.

May God be with all those who lost loved ones, friends and neighbors. We have all lost brothers and sisters in both fire and ems. May God give those sifting through the rubble the strength to do what is needed and the guidance and resources to do what needs to be done. Protect them and keep them safe while they clean up what took so little time to create -- and DAMN the bastards that could be so callous and heartless as to even dream of such an act.
God bless all who answer the call, may they all be safe and with us all!
My heart is broken for the brothers and sisters we have lost today. I wish to express my deepest condolences to the families and fellow firemen touched by this incident. E-10 A-shift ,as well as the entire Irving, TX fire department, will be praying for all of our brothers and sisters that have been lost and thier bereaved.

"May the peace of God be with you, and comfort you."
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Let not your hearts be troubled, you believe in God, believe also in me.
In my fathers house are many mansions: if were not so I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
When Jesus saw her weeping and those who had come with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled.
The honor, admiration, and respect, bestowed upon our great profession has been bought and paid for with the sacrifice and blood of our own.
To New York's finest, I say you are just that. I salute you and yours. May God's comfort and peace be upon you all. I pray that I might face my hour with such courage and resolve.

We awoke in Australia this morning to see the devestation on our television screens, and our immediate thoughts were of shock and disbelief.
Then we learnt of the terrible toll taken on our firefighting family, the loss of unbelievable numbers of our brother and sister firefighters. The thoughts and prayers of all Australian Firefighters goes out to the FDNY, and to the families of the fallen. This has shocked us all. Flags at stations here are flying at half mast in tribute to our fallen fellow firefighters.
We may be a long way away, but believe us when we say we are there right alongside you.
God be with the victims of the World trade center, and the Pentagon disaters.
God be with our fallen brothers in FDNY.
and finally God be with us all.
May we all soon find peace.
As I listen through out the day to the incident in NYC. A deep sadness came over me when I heard that some may NYC Firefighters may have lost there life.
My Prayers go to the New York Firefighter who put there life on the line everyday to help those in need. Also Prayer to the families who may not see there love ones again.
Our prayers are with you.words can not describe my grief.
If there is anything that I can do please

I sit here with a heavy heart and no words come to express the sorrow I feel
The Brotherhood is here to support those in NY & D.C.
Our flags on the West Coast are at half staff and we will continue to ring our bell until ALL of the Brave come Home.
Our hearts are full of sorrow tonight for brothers we have never known. We pray for their families that God will watch over them . We can only imagine the things that they seen, felt, and heard. They will remain in our thoughts and prayers for now and eternity along with the remaining emergency workers still on the scene. God Bless

All Australians were shocked and saddened to see this dreadful act today. I cannot even try to comprehend the suffering of all those who have lost family members in the line of duty. For those of you left, please stay safe, our prayers are with you. Please try to ensure that you dont lose sight of your faith, or your immense value to your communities.
German FF are shaken by looking at the pictures on TV.

To the Emergency Service Workers in NY,
Hang in there! Your brothers from Upstate (Albany area) are Comming!
Not only pray for the FDNY fallen and their families, but pray for the rescuers digging in the rubble and those responding from all over the world. Pray for them not only during the next few weeks, but pray for them in the following months ahead as they deal with what they have seen. If you have an American flag in your house, get it out and display it proudly... it is in our darkest hour that we must come together!
To the fire fighters and EMS workers who have attended their last call in the line of duty.
From myself and my colleagues here in the UK.
Our prayers and hearts are with you all and your families.
