I am medically retired from the NYC Fire Dept. due to numerous physical illness as well as severe PTSD. I was critically injured in the collapse of the North Tower on Sept. 11th while working as a Rescue Paramedic for the FDNY. After being released from the hospital i fought my way back to full duty but in 2011 retired due to my illness's becoming so severe it made doing my job impossible. Currently i volunteer as a Docent one day a week at the Sept. 11th Memirial Museum and do advocacy work for the Fealgood Foundation.
