Ceremony to take place before Regan ships out for second tour of duty in Iraq

Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta tomorrow will preside at a graduation ceremony for Probationary Firefighter Peter T. Regan at the quarters of Rescue Company 3 in the Bronx. Firefighter Regan has successfully completed the requirements necessary to graduate the FDNY Fire Academy on March 7th but will be unable to take part in the Department’s graduation ceremony because he has been called up to active duty in the United States Marine Corps.

Regan’s father, Donald, was a firefighter assigned to Rescue Company 3 and was killed on 9-11 along with seven other members of the Rescue Company as they operated at the World Trade Center. Family and friends of the Regans as well as members of Rescue 3 will join Commissioner Scoppetta at the ceremony.
