Grateful for Steve's support of Heroes Defense. He graciously offered a signed firefighter's helmet for our live auction! Thank you Steve!Once a BROTHER, always a BROTHER!👩‍🚒🚒🇺🇲

Lots of people know he's an actor, and that his name is Steve Buscemi.

In 1976 Steve Buscemi took the FDNY civil service test when he was just 18 years old. In 1980 Steve Buscemi became a New York City Firefighter.

For four years, Buscemi served on one of FDNY's busiest, Engine Co. 55 in Manhattan's Little Italy.
He later left the fire service to become a successful actor, writer and director.

After 9/11/2001... Brother Buscemi returned to #FDNY Engine 55.
On September 12, 2001 and for several days following Brother Steve worked 12-hour shifts alongside other firefighters digging and sifting through the rubble from the World Trade Center looking for survivors.

Very few photographs and no interviews exist because he declined them.
He wasn't there for the publicity. In 2003 he also gave a speech at a union rally supporting higher wages for firefighters and to stop fire houses from closing.
He got arrested along with other firefighters.

Also not very well known is that in 2012 Brother Buscemi showed up in Breezy Point, NY and quietly assisted in the clean-up efforts of the damage and mass destruction left by Super Storm Sandy.

"Steve Buscemi also serves on the board of Friends of Firefighters and was working with us in the field during Sandy.
He's a big supporter and good friend who has never forgotten where he came from."

- Friends of Firefighters Executive Director Nancy A Carbone
