NY1 VIDEO: As part of its 9/11 tenth anniversary coverage, NY1 takes a look back at reporter Gigi Stone's September 16, 2001 story on how the fire department held a promotion ceremony just days after the attack to replenish its ranks and to honor those who died.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP: One of the men promoted in the above story is Salvatore Cassano, who has continued to rise through the ranks.
