New York City Fire Department (FDNY)
FDNY honors the 343 FDNY members who made the Supreme Sacrifice on September 11th. Four members killed that day responded from FDNY HQ, First Deputy Commissioner William Feehan, Chief of Department Peter Ganci, Assistant Chief Gerard Barbara, and Assistant Chief Donald Burns. Their families gathered with FDNY members at a ceremony at FDNY Headquarters in Brooklyn. Commissioner Feehan was a 42-year FDNY veteran. He was appointed to FDNY in 1959, assigned to Ladder 3 in Manhattan. Chief Feehan served as the highest ranking uniformed officer, Chief of Department, in 1991 and as Fire Commissioner from 1993-1994. Chief Ganci, a 33-year veteran, was the highest-ranking uniformed FDNY member killed on Sept 11th. His career began in 1968 at Engine 92 in the Bronx. He held every uniformed rank and was well-known for his tremendous leadership. He received numerous citations for bravery, including a Medal in 1982 for rescuing a child from an apartment fire. He had a deep love for the Department, which was clear in his words to new classes of Probationary Firefighters at each graduation ceremony, telling them, “When someone asks you what you do for a living, you can tell them, ‘I’m a New York City Firefighter. It doesn’t get any better than that.’” Chief Barbara was a 31-year veteran and began his career at Engine 91 in Manhattan. He worked in all 5 boroughs in his extraordinary career. In 1981, Chief Barbara was awarded a Medal for rescuing 2 people from a Brooklyn fire. As Asst Chief of Fire Prevention, he championed for stronger codes and enforcement. On Sept 11th, Chief Barbara was a City-Wide Tour Commander and led the Department’s rescue effort in the South Tower. Chief Burns was a 40-year veteran and began his career at Ladder 123 in Brooklyn in 1961. He was cited 5 times for bravery and spent extensive time working in FDNY Planning, Research, Training, and Operations. Chief Burns was the commander of Tower 1 during the FDNY’s response to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. On Sept 11th, he had set up a command post inside the South Tower just minutes before it collapsed. #NeverForget

Welcome to Stage 2, Lake County!
*** EXCEPTION: GARY REMAINS ON STAGE 1 PER MAYOR PRINCE. ***
DISCLAIMER: The document attached to the link at the bottom of this post is the Stage 2 document created by the Governor's Office. Any changes that have been or may be made to this plan should be reflected on that document. It is the responsibility of the Governor's Office to update it if applicable. What's at this link today may differ tomorrow. It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the document and ask questions. This is not legal advice from Lake County Government. When in doubt, reach out to the Governor's Office.
We made it... to Stage 2. If we all work together, we can make it to Stage 3 on time... or if not, we could get stuck in Stage 2... or worse... go back to Stage 1. It sounds like a game show, folks, BUT IT IS NOT...
1) Restaurants and Bars with Food (as per the chart at the link): These may open at 50% capacity ONE WEEK AFTER Stage 2 begins, so that's May 18. This doesn't impact existing drive-up, curbside, delivery options at all. *** This should PROBABLY say Restaurants that serve alcohol vs. Bars with food, but then again, why mention it at all since a restaurant is still restaurant whether or not it serves alcohol. BARS remain closed at this time. This is one of those "reach out to the Governor's Office for clarification" situations. ***
2) Personal Services (most common "what's that?" = hair salons, barber shops, nail salons... to name a few): These may open BY APPOINTMENT ONLY starting May 18.
3) Lake County Government remains closed to the public with an planned return to normal operation on Monday, May 18. Click https://bit.ly/LCG04192020 to review those details.
4) The Travel Advisory that has been in place for quite some time HAS BEEN LIFTED... and will NOT be used for non-standard events such as a pandemic in the future. It created too much confusion throughout the state, so this is a perfect time to set it back to normal. Please follow the guidelines as set forth in the five stages in the Back on Track Indiana plan.
1) The Back On Track plan comes from the Governor's Office, NOT the Lake County Government.
2) This is a PLAN, and as you know, plans don't always work out as PLANNED, so some or all of this can change, so keep an eye open for updates.
3) Look for the light at the end of the tunnel. It's visible now.
