As we approach the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, the FDNY fireboat Firefighter II berthed in Staten Island provides a water display in front of the Statue of Liberty. It is one of two new identical fireboats recently added to the department’s Marine Division. The first boat was named 343 in honor of the firefighters who were lost on 9/11. Never forget.
