Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta, along with other top representatives from FDNY, NYPD and PAPD, as well as elected officials, Sunday will attend a rededication ceremony at the Brooklyn Wall of Remembrance located outside Keyspan Park in Coney Island. The wall pays tribute to 137 FDNY, 11 NYPD, and seven PAPD members that either worked or lived in the borough of Brooklyn, and were killed in the line of duty on September 11th. It features laser engraved granite portraits of those killed and serves as a place of reflection for all that pass by. The wall was originally dedicated last December and included only FDNY members who responded from Brooklyn firehouses and were killed on 9-11. It now serves as a tribute to all the uniformed heroes of Brooklyn.
