BROOKLYN - A Red Hook firehouse is remembering some of its own men on the 12th anniversary of Sept. 11.

Ladder Company 101 and Engine Company 202 lost seven men, now known as the “Seven in Heaven,” after being one of the first firehouses to respond to the World Trade Center in 2001.

The name caught on, even leading the city to rename the street the firehouse sits on to Seven in Heaven Way. Fellow firefighters there say that the men they lost are all heroes who died trying to rescue others.

The Seven in Heaven are Joseph Gullickson, Salvatore Calabro, Thomas Kennedy, Patrick Byrne, Joseph Maffeo, Brian Cannizzaro and Terrence McShane.
