The following members of the service have perished since as a result of illnesses contracted from exposure at Ground Zero and Fresh Kills.

In the rescue and recovery efforts that followed the destruction of the World Trade Center a decade ago, thousands of New York City Police Department Personnel worked long hours and days on end, initially in the hope of finding survivors and afterwards to recover their fallen comrades and others who died on 9/11. Exposed to toxic smoke and other hazards, more than 50 members of the service who engaged in rescue and recovery efforts developed cancers and other fatal illnesses. Sadly, that chapter of the post 9/11 saga has not yet closed as we expect to add in the months and years ahead to the list of 50 whose names are listed below:
