Incident Summary

On September 11, 2001, Lieutenant Andrew Fredericks responded to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center with Squad 18 of the Fire Department of New York. Squad 18 was one of five squad companies sent to rescue victims from the upper floors of One World Trade Center (the North Tower). Fredericks and members of Squad 18 were still in the building when it collapsed at 10:28 am, one hour and forty minutes after terrorists flew hijacked United Flight 11 into the tower. Fredericks was one of 343 firefighters killed in the line of duty that day.

A twenty year veteran of the Fire Department of New York, Fredericks was a national leader in fire service education and training. He produced numerous fire training videos and articles, served on the editorial advisory board for Fire Engineering, and co-authored the FDNY engine company operations manual. In addition, Fredericks was an instructor for the New York State Academy of Fire Science, the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs, the Rockland County Fire Training Center, and the Illinois Fire Service Institute. A life-sized bronze statue of Fredericks was unveiled at the Rockland County Fire Training Center in May 2007.
