FDNY hero Tim Brown will appear on Telecare TV tomorrow, September 7, 2016, with 9/11 Victim Compensation Attorney Troy Rosasco to remember the 15th Anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The program, Family Comes First, will appear on Telecare (Cablevision channels 29 and 137, Time Warner channels 106 (Manhattan), 471 (Queens) or Verizon FiOS TV channel 296) on Wednesday, September 7, 2016 at 9:30 am. The episode will also re-air on Wednesday at 10:30 pm, Thursday at 1:30 pm and Monday at 1:30 pm.
Tim Brown is a retired , decorated 20-year FDNY veteran. On 9/11 he was with the Office of Emergency Management and was inside both towers that morning before they collapsed. Tim Brown survived, but more than 90 of his friends – including his best friend, FDNY Capt. Terence Hatton of Rescue Co. 1 – died that day.
Before the towers collapsed, Capt. Hatton and Tim embraced one last time in the Twin Towers. Then Capt. Hatton began his ascent up the tower. Tim never saw him again. During the panic in the World Trade Center, Tim helped coordinate response with emergency officials. When the building began to fall, he escaped into a nearby hotel.
The TV show, which highlights Tim’s harrowing story told in his own humble words, is worthwhile tuning in to watch as we approach the 15th anniversary of September 11th. Since 9/11, Tim has been a leader in protecting the memory of all those lost on 9/11 at Ground Zero. He has also fought tirelessly for compensation and medical care for all 9/11 first responders and survivors with cancer.
9/11 Victim Compensation Fund attorney, Troy Rosasco of Turley, Hansen & Rosasco, LLP, will also speak on the new Zadroga Reauthorization Act and recent developments at the Fund under new Special Master, Rupa Bhattacharyya.
Family Comes First, the two-time Telly award winning show, is co-hosted by Long Island Elder Law Attorney Vincent J. Russo & Victoria Roberts Drogin. Knowing the importance of the upcoming anniversary, they were privileged to produce this show with Telecare to honor those first responders who fought to save the lives of so many.
