Firefighter Morello's Act of Heroism

Over 400 first responders lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Heroically performing their sworn duty, these firefighters, members of the NYPD and PAPD, and numerous other rescue workers will forever be remembered for their sacrifice.

My Hero

Vincent S. Morello, 34, of New York City, a firefighter with the New York Fire Department, was lost on September 11 in the World Trade Center. He came from a family of firefighters (His father, John, is a retired fire chief, his brother, Marc, is also a firefighter). He was married to Debi and father to Justin and Paige.

A memorial was held on November 2, 2001 in Middle Village. He was a wonderful friend and family man. In 2000, Vincent gave up a job for the FDNY as a mechanic, taking a 50 percent paycut, to fulfill his dream of riding the truck, instead of fixing it. He will be missed.
