RAMAPO - Rockland will honor nationally known firefighter
Andrew Fredericks and 20 other firefighters from the county who were killed on Sept. 11, 2001, with a new memorial on Saturday.
Standing just inside the front door of the Rockland Fire Training Center, the 6-foot-tall bronze statue of Fredericks forms the centerpiece of a memorial to the firefighters who died beneath the rubble of the World Trade Center.
The statue captures the image of Fredericks, a New York Fire Department lieutenant from Suffern who worked as an instructor at the training center.
A firefighting group called Fire Nuggets commissioned the statue in memory of Fredericks, 40, who garnered a nationwide reputation as an instructor and author.
