The Secret List
 

The Secret List is an independent newsletter produced since 1998 by Chief Billy Goldfeder in an effort to bring forward the issues involving injury and death to us...often issues that are ignored, quickly forgotten or just not talked about.

TSL is e-mailed at no charge and produced as time allows. With the attitude that in order for us to survive the dangers of the job, they must learn how we have had "Close Calls" and even been injured or killed, TSL brings forward issues in an effort to enforce that philosophy-and get us to refocus on "what's important."

A Bad Job, A Good Job & "Emergency" (The Secret List)

Friday, August 29, 2014  Hey,

With the 13th Anniversary of the attacks and murders on our Country-9/11/01-here are three films well worthy of of your time-and the time of anyone else you can pass this on to. With the very recent threats and proven behaviors of the IS/ISIS group, we (and all of our North American leaders) better remember every aspect and the pre-warnings of 9/11/01.

(In case there are people in your lives that fail to remember-we have some reminders below)




Hopefully, by now, your department or company plans are set for honoring all those killed on 9/11. This year, 9/11 falls on a Thursday...two weeks from yesterday. 




"A BAD JOB"

Just days after September 11, 2001, the Environmental Protection Agency assured the public that there should be no concern about any health hazards associated with exposure to smoke and debris in lower Manhattan. They (the EPA and it's so called leadership) did a bad job...a
HORRIBLE

job. 

This disturbing documentary (link below) asks whether the EPA's pronouncement was based on science or politics. Now many of the Firefighters, Police Officers, EMT's and other first-responders who risked their lives within that toxic chemical soup are seriously ill or dying.




With the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks just around the corner, we urge to view this video narrated by former F.D.N.Y Firefighter - now actor Steve Buscemi. It's a sad reminder that all this time later, good people are still suffering with serious illnesses and dying everyday as a result of what terrorists did to us:

"A GOOD JOB"

“A Good Job: Stories of the FDNY” produced by and featuring actor and former New York City Fireman Steve Buscemi will debut on Monday, September 8th on HBO.


The term “a good job” means a really tough fire, according to one of the many NYC firefighters included in this documentary directed Liz Garbus (Bobby Fischer Against The World). The film goes inside the unique experience of being a fireman in New York City. Buscemi, who was part of the New York Fire Department at Engine Co. 55 in the early 80s, retraces his steps with the FDNY and talks to the men and women who risk their lives on a constant basis to keep the city and its people safe.


“A Good Job” adds to the interviews with rare fire scene footage and photos that capture the physical and mental costs of what it’s like to fight fires in the urban landscape of New York now and also in the 5 previous decades, showing how much the job has changed, but the camaraderie hasn’t.  The FDNY forms its own community of firefighters looking out for each other and the film discusses where that feeling of responsibility comes from for their fellow firemen and the city of New York.


“A Good Job: Stories of the FDNY” airs Monday, September 8th at 9 pm et on HBO.

"EMERGENCY"

This is a Discovery Channel film about the NYPD Emergency Services Unit members who gave their lives on 9/11. Known as "ESU" or "Emergency"-they are a unit unique to NYC and a few New York metro area communities. A one hour special about them: ‘9/11 E-Men Heroes’ Airs on Thursday, September 11 at 8PM ET/PT.


On the thirteenth anniversary of September 11th, Discovery tells the story of the heroism and sacrifice of the NYPD’s Emergency Service Unit (ESU) and the "E-Men" who were tasked with rescuing as many people as possible. Featuring previously unseen archive material and moving first-hand testimony, the story of the NYPD ESU cops will be told. 




NYPD's ESU is a unique institution in law enforcement made up of around 300 specialized officers trained in SWAT, jumpers, search and rescue, building collapse and heavy weapons and  hazardous materials containment. Of the 31 E-Men who rushed into the World Trade Center on that day, only 17 survived. The 14 E-Men who lost their lives were among 60 law-enforcement personnel who died on 9/11, the worst single day in US police and fire service history. 




9/11 E-MEN HEROES airs on Discovery Channel on Thursday, September 11th at 8 PM ET/PT.
