“Today is a somber day for New Yorkers as we mourn the loss of FDNY Battalion Chief Michael Fahy, who lost his life in the line of duty courageously battling an explosion in the Bronx. Every day, the bravery and selflessness of our first responders is exemplified in the work they do to keep us safe. FDNY Battalion Chief Fahy was a hero who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect New Yorkers. My thoughts and prayers are with all those who were injured, our first responders and FDNY Battalion Chief Fahy’s loved ones and his brothers and sisters at FDNY Bronx Engine 75.”
