CAPTAIN JAKUB AND THE CRIMEFIGHTER CORVETTE AT THE TUNNEL TO TOWERS RUN
Stephen Siller, beloved husband and father of five, was a firefighter from Squad 1, Park Slope Brooklyn. On 9/11, he was off-duty, and on his way to golf with his 3 older brothers. When Stephen heard on his scanner that the World Trade Center had been hit, he turned his vehicle around and headed towards the site. When his truck was prohibited from entering the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, typical of him, he raced on foot towards the site with his gear strapped to his back. He was last seen alive on West and Liberty Streets where he, more than likely, went looking for his Squad, all of whom perished. The Tunnel to Towers Run retraced Stephen’s footsteps on that fateful day.
Captain Joe was honored to attend with the Crimefighter Corvette to help memorialize Steven Siller's heroic effort and the memory of all the Firefighters, Police, and EMS workers who performed their duty that day.
They will never be forgotten!
