Thomas was a member of Engine Company 22. Thomas was assigned to help remove nonambulatory people from the North tower near a staging area somewhere between the 26th and 30th floors. He had radioed to his Captain that He and 2 other members of his company were assisting with the removal of several of these people.

My Hero

Thomas Casoria found his true calling when he was sworn in as a member of the FDNY in February of 1999. He worked in Engine Company 22 onthe upper east side of Manhattan. Thomas was a gifted athlete as well. he played 2nd base for the FDNY traveling softball team that competed nationwide against other Departments and was an asset to the team. He also played ice hockey and volleyball in the various tournaments that the FDNY has annually.

Thomas is dearly missed by all whom he worked with and by his family as well. he is survied by his mother Judy his father Carlo Sr. as well as his 2 siblings Janine and his Brother Carlo Jr who is also A New York City Firefighter
