The FDNY remembers fire marshal Christopher T. Zanetis on 2nd Street
The FDNY and NYU are hosting a Celebration of Life today in remembrance of FDNY fire marshal and U.S. Air Force Major Christopher "Tripp" Zanetis, who died in a military helicopter crash in Iraq on March 15.
Zanetis, 37, was on leave from the department, where he had been a marshal in the Bureau of Fire Investigation.
After graduating from NYU, he was appointed as a firefighter in 2004, and was assigned to Engine Company 28, Ladder 11 on Second Street between Avenue B and Avenue C. Zanetis was promoted to fire marshal in 2013.
