A veteran FDNY lieutenant passed away this morning with his boots on. Lieutenant Robert Ryan was at the scene of a deadly fire when a ceiling collapsed on him during the rescue and douse mission as he battled a surging fire in a Staten Island home.
Lt. Robert Ryan’s mask and air supply were knocked off by the falling debris and sent him hurtling to the floor.
Memorial service and funeral service will be scheduled shortly and I will update this site as and when the details are available.
Did you know the Lieutenant or do you work in the FDNY? Please leave your condolences below.
