Written by Eric Holden Friday, 23 September 2011 00:00

Levittown Gathers for Memorial Services, National Day of Service

The Levittown Fire Department, at its 10th anniversary memorial service, unveiled two pieces of steel that were once part of the World Trade Center towers. Every year since the attack took place, Levittown’s firefighters have gathered on September 11 at the monument erected in honor of their former Chief, Ronald T. Kerwin who, as a lieutenant in Squad Co. 288 of New York City Fire Department (FDNY), gave his life along with other members of his company evacuating people from the South tower of the World Trade Center.

On July 19, a group of firefighters from Levittown Fire Company, Ladder One, led by Chief Charles Giudice traveled into the city to take possession of an I-beam, nearly 1,800 pounds, donated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to be displayed at the monument previously erected in his honor at fire headquarters on Gardiners Avenue in Levittown.
