Just incase you didn't know... now you know. This story is the type of character every firefighter out there should want to emulate.
Before becoming an actor, Steve Buscemi served as an FDNY Firefighter with Engine Co. 55 in Manhattan from 1980-84.
After the events on September 11, 2001, Buscemi returned to his former Engine company and worked 12 hour shifts for several days alongside his fellow firefighters searching through the rubble for survivors.
Once a firefighter, always a firefighter.
