United States FDNY Assistant Chief Ronald R. Spadafora Passes Away

Quote:
Ronald R. Spadafora

The Fire Engineering/FDIC International family is sad to report the passing of Fire Department of New York (FDNY) Assistant Chief Ronald R. Spadafora, a longtime Fire Engineering author and FDIC International instructor.

Spadafora was a 39-year veteran of the FDNY, where he was the chief of Fire Prevention. On 9/11, he responded to the World Trade Center (WTC) and supervised rescue and fire suppression efforts. He was named the WTC chief of safety for the entire recovery operation, which ended in late June 2002.

On August 14-15, 2003, he headed the Logistics Section for the FDNY during the New York City Blackout. In the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in September 2005, he was designated deputy incident commander of the FDNY Incident Management Team and was sent to Louisiana to assist the New Orleans Fire Department. In October-November 2013, he coordinated logistics for the FDNY for Hurricane Sandy.
Apparently, according to another source, the cause of death was the cancer he caught during the rescue operations at the World Trade Center. He's the 178th fireman to die from an illness caught in the aftermath of 9/11.

Cancer is not an infectious disease. You don't catch it like you do a fly ball, or the flu.
