5/11/2022 - Fire News presents "9/11 Edition Charitable Awards Event"


 Contact Frank C. Trotta:  631 286-4566


In May, Fire News held a charitable awards event donating a total of $50,000 to five fire related charities.  The commitment to donate the funds was made by Fire News publisher Frank C. Trotta when the Fire News 9/11 20th Anniversary Issue was released last fall. 


Publisher Frank C. Trotta and Chief Operating Officer Tim Edwards presented $10,000 checks to the charities, noting that the “Five charities continue to contribute in a positive way to families affected by the devasting effects of 9/11”.


The charities chosen serve both Suffolk and Nassau County with many doing work nationally.  They include The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund, Lt. Joseph P. DiBernardo Foundation, The Ray Pfeifer Foundation, Firefighter Cancer Support Network – NY Chapter and The FealGood Foundation.


The afternoon event was well-attended by chiefs and members from all around Long Island, state and local government officials and others.  It was highlighted by the Ceremonial Color Guard provided by the Fire Chiefs Council of Suffolk County and former FDNY Chief of Department Tom Richardson as the key note speaker.  Additional speakers included Legislator Tom Donnelly, Senator John Brooks, Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine, Liason for FDNY 9/11 Ceremonial Unit Ray McGuire and Suffolk County Comptroller John Kennedy.


“I’d like to thank the Fire News editorial and sales staff for their round-the-clock work producing the 9/11 20th Anniversary issue, our photographers who donated their images and our advertisers who supported the issue,” said Trotta.  Thank you to the South County Ambulance Company for generously providing their facilities, hospitality and to all of their members that volunteered to help.
