Our Fund was formed after the events of September 11, 2001. Those of us who searched and cried for our missing brothers were comforted by the thousands of firefighters and departments who sent crews, tools and support to get us through those dark days.
The Fund is here to assist firefighters across the nation just as we were helped when New Yorkers needed it the most. We are proud to have a chapter in the great State of Delaware where we will continue to support those firefighters and their families when the need arises. If you or another firefighter needs assistance do not hesitate to reach out to the chapter members.
The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund was established in memory of Terry Farrel, a decorated member of Rescue 4/FDNY and Chief of Dix Hills Volunteer Fire Department. Terry, along with 342 of his brothers, perished on September 11, 2001 in the World Trade Center attack. Our Fund is here to assist Firefighters and their families with educational, medical and equipment needs. Every 3 days, on average a Firefighter gives their life to protect us. Every few minutes another Firefighter is seriously injured. The Fund is here to support the families of those Firefighters when the need arises. We support the Firefighters who serve our communities.
