Today We Remember FF Stephen Siller
Today we remember Firefighter Stephen Siller, from Squad 1 in Park Slope Brooklyn. On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, Stephen, a beloved husband and father of five, was off-duty and on his way to play golf with his brothers in Brooklyn when he heard about the terror attacks. Compelled to respond, Stephen drove his truck to the entrance of the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel, and when the entranced was blocked, he raced 3 miles on foot carrying 80 pounds of gear, through the smoke-filled tunnel to the WTC site. He eventually met up with his Squad 1 members, and began helping people out of the South tower. He was last seen alive at West and Liberty Streets. His brothers from Squad 1 that he joined that day also perished.
