The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

FDNY fireboat 343 displaying her ability to flow 50,000 gallons per minute at the 17th annual Steve Siller Tunnel to Towers (T2T) memorial run on 9-30-2018. Notice the rainbow mixed in with the streams.
At the tunnel's exit in Manhattan the runners are greeted with members of FDNY showing larger-than-life photos of the brothers lost that day and cadets from the US Military Academy at West Point holding American flags. One photo shows a firefighter emulating Siller by running in full turnout gear. Many of the runners do this.
This year more than 50k people participated.
