Do you recognize this man? Do you know his name? Lots of people know he’s an actor, and that his name is Steve Buscemi.  What very few people realize is that he was once one of New York’s Bravest.… In 1976 Steve Buscemi took the FDNY civil service test when he was just 18 years old. In 1980 Steve Buscemi became a New York City Firefighter.  For four years, Buscemi served on one FDNY’s busiest, Engine Co. 55 in Manhattan’s Little Italy. He later left the fire service to become a successful actor, writer and director. After 9/11/2001… Brother Buscemi returned to FDNY Engine 55. On September 12, 2001 and for several days following Brother Steve worked 12-hour shifts alongside other firefighters digging and sifting through the rubble from the World Trade Center looking for survivors.  Very few photographs and no interviews exist because he declined them. He wasn’t there for the publicity. In 2003 he also gave a speech at a union rally supporting higher wages for firefighters and to stop fire stations from closing. He got arrested along with other firefighters. Once a brother, always a brother!
