^^^AC SPADAFORA ...The pain of 9/11 is inflicted anew

Chief Ronald R. Spadafora was by all accounts an exemplary firefighter who in a 40-year career provided leadership in the worst of times.

Stop a moment and remember Chief of Fire Prevention Ronald R. Spadafora, who last week became the 178th FDNY member to die of a World Trade Center-related illness.

A one-time Levittown resident, Spadafora, 63, was by all accounts an exemplary firefighter who in a 40-year career provided leadership in the worst of times ? from hurricanes to the many, many fires in every borough that are routine in his line of work.

But one of those crowning moments of service came after the tragedies of Sept. 11, 2001, when Spadafora supervised rescue and recovery efforts at Ground Zero. He was described as a ?constant fixture? there at the time. In 2013, when parts from one of the doomed planes were found near the site, investigators searched again for human remains. ?It?s been 11 years,? Spadafora said then, ?and it tears away at you.?

The experience tore away at Spadafora and other emergency workers who developed life-threatening illnesses working among that hazardous material. We are now more than 16 years past the attack on the World Trade Center, but it is chilling to continue to see the toll of that awful day.

There are no good estimates of how many NYPD and FDNY and other emergency personnel will die prematurely because of their work at Ground Zero, but surely there will be a 179th firefighter, and a 159th NYPD member, and possibly hundreds more. Thousands of responders have been diagnosed with 9/11-related cancers as certified by the Zadroga Act, the 2010 legislation that created the World Trade Center Health Program. In 2015, advocates had to beg in Congress for its renewal. The related Victim Compensation Fund is up for renewal in 2020. The programs are the least that can be done.

For now and in the future, remember those like Spadafora, yet another victim of Sept. 11.

In regard to replies 267 thru 270 & 272....... Thanks to ladder2.....1988 Medal Day Book
Steuben Association Medal awarded to:

LT ROBERT P. MIUCCIO L113

Fire is not the only type of life-threatening situation that firefighters confront. There are other episodes of danger which can require the help of the Fire Department and place its members in perilous circumstances. The recent construction boom in all boroughs of the city has caused an upsurge in the removal of older, run-down buildings. During the demolition of a four-story non-fireproof multiple dwelling at 1430 Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn, an oversight on the part of the workers had caused the roof to collapse onto the top floor. This abrupt calamity caused the injury of 23-year-old Frank Purcell, a construction worker who was trapped on the fourth floor.

The morning of November 11, 1987, had started out busy for Ladder 113. Their first box came in right at the start of the day tour and they had not yet returned to quarters when they were called on the Department radio at 0925 hours and ordered to respond to Box 925 for a building collapse. As L113 pulled up to the location, Lt Robert P. Miuccio saw workmen running around and screaming that the rear roof of the structure had collapsed, trapping a coworker on the fourth floor. The resulting crash caused a chain reaction as sections of the fourth and third floors also crumbled downward.

Entering the building through the interior to survey the situation, Bob located Purcell in a precarious position on what remained of the fourth floor, approximately 50 feet above the ground. The victim was partially covered with debris from the caved-in roof and lying on a small section of flooring that was perched on two highly unstable beams. Purcell screamed that he was in pain and obviously was unable to free himself or find a safe route to the ground.

Bob realized that the best approach to the trapped construction worker would be from the adjoining building. The lieutenant quickly went into it to plan his rescue strategy before a further collapse could bring down the rest of the building. He found a plank in the intact building next door, which he could use as a bridge over the air shaft to the partially remaining fourth floor. Once he made it to the building, he carefully worked his way out on the beams until he reached the victim. Bob speedily assessed Purcell's physical condition, then administered first aid to the injured worker. Since Purcell could have had a possible back injury requiring caution in moving him, Bob called for a backboard and a portable ladder. The lieutenant was joined at this time by FF Bruce Howard of R2, who helped him stabilize Purcell and prepare him for removal.

Working carefully on this small island 50 feet above the ground, which could have brought all three men crashing down with one false move, the two men managed to get Purcell secured to the backboard. Using the 25-foot portable ladder as a bridge, they were able to slide the victim across it to the other members of L113 and R2. From there, Purcell was removed to the bucket of TL 105, especially called for this procedure. Once he was on the ground, the EMS paramedics took over and transported him to Kings County Hospital in critical condition.

It is for the exemplary manner in which Lt Robert P. Miuccio took decisive command in the successful operation of a rescue, showing dedication and bravery, risking his own safety, that he is proudly awarded the Steuben Association Medal.

Robert P. Miuccio was appointed to the FDNY on September 14, 1968; Served in the United States Air Force 1960-1964; Attended John Jay College and the College of Staten Island; Member of the Holy Name Society, Columbia Association, and the Company Officers Association;
