New York City Fire Department casualties of the September 11 attacks

FDNY apparatus at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

The New York City Fire Department (FDNY) suffered significant casualties in the September 11 attacks, with a total of 343 personnel killed. The following list breaks down each fire department company by number of casualties and their ranks.[1] There were 75 firehouses in which at least one member was killed. FDNY also lost its chief, commissioner, marshal, chaplain, as well as other administrative or specialty personnel.

Operationally and geographically, the department are nominally organized into five borough commands for the five traditional boroughs of New York. Within those borough commands exist nine divisions, each headed by a deputy chief. Within each division operate four to seven battalions, led by a battalion chief and typically consisting of 180-200 firefighters and officers. Each battalion consists of four to eight companies, with a company being led by a captain. He commands three lieutenants and 16-42 firefighters. Last is the unit consisting of the members of the company on call during a given tour, consisting of a lieutenant or a captain plus a number of firefighters depending on the type of unit: three to four on an engine company, five on a ladder company (also known as a truck company), five for a rescue company, five for a squad company, four in a marine company, and six for the hazardous materials company.
