“Chief” Screening and “Five Floors Up” Book Signing
March 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST$26.00
This special Sheen Center event will shine the spotlight on the career of “Chief” William M. Feehan, the highest ranking firefighter to lose his life in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. Feehan was the only person to have held every rank in the FDNY, including New York City’s 28th Fire Commissioner. The event will include a screening of the short documentary “Chief” and a panel discussion featuring Feehan’s oldest son, William Feehan; his son-in-law, FDNY Battalion Chief Brian Davan, as well as author Brian McDonald, whose book “Five Floors Up” chronicles the story of the FDNY through the eyes of four generations of the Feehan family. Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, FDNY chaplain, and Sheen Center Board member will moderate. The event will be followed by a book signing with McDonald, with copies of the book available for purchase.
