On behalf of
the Jamaica Fire Brigade, I extend sincere condolences to you and
the other fire fighters and officers in the New York City area,
on the death of the over 300 members of your department who, it
is reported, perished in the attack on the World Trade Centre on
Tuesday, September 11, 2001.
We in the firefighting
fraternity well recognize and accept the risks associated with our
profession, but the loss is felt more so when one considers the
circumstances surrounding these firefighters death.
