I am so saddened to tell you over the weekend we lost the 178th FDNY’er to 911 toxins. 4 star FDNY Chief Ronnie Spadafora worked for the FDNY ‘til the end. He headed the rescue & recover at Ground Zero all those months. Yet he only fell ill 2-plus years ago. I was privileged to interview him about a year ago. In fact, he was the first of so many subsequent interviews I’ve done with those ailing from the 911 poisons. I will pay tribute to Chief Spadafora, an extraordinary man, by re-airing our candid conversation. His illness and death is a reminder to get checked by the WTC Health fund if you were below Canal Street that day or part of the 8 months after. Please spread the word if you know anyone who is sick or even in remission. If diagnosed with a physical illness, 99% of the time it leads to compensation from the Victim Compensation Fund.
