Town of Clarkstown to Dedicate Cherry Hill Lane in West Nyack in Memory of FDNY Firefighter Robert E. Leaver

Published

on

WEST NYACK, NY – Robert “Bobby” Leaver was a dedicated firefighter with the FDNY for 20 years. A first responder on September 11, 2001, he bravely faced terror along with all his brother firefighters, police, and first responders. Many of his friends, some he grew up with, some he worked with, were lost that day.

Robert was diagnosed with leukemia and battled the disease courageously for eleven years. He never considered himself a victim of September 11th. He was a first responder, a proud member of the bravest of the brave. He was one of three FDNY firefighters who died on the same day from 9/11 related cancers in 2014. He was 56 years old.

Robert will be remembered for his kind heart, quiet strength, quick wit, and great sense of humor. He lives in our hearts and is shining brightly in God’s light.
The Town of Clarkstown and Supervisor George Hoehmann have made it a priority to remember those we lost on 9/11 and have recognized many first responders who have passed away from 9/11 related illnesses. #neverforget

New City, NY – The County of Rockland, along with towns and law enforcement, are on alert following an FBI warning made Thursday to the House of Representatives. During that panel, FBI Bureau Director Christopher Wray said he was increasingly concerned about “the potential for a coordinated attack here [United States] in the homeland, akin to the Isis-K attack we saw at the Russia Concert Hall just a couple weeks ago.”

“As I look back over my career in law enforcement, I would be hard-pressed to think of a time where so many threats to our public safety and national security were so elevated all at once. But that is the case as I sit here today,” said Wray.

Back in March, 144 people were killed and over 500 injured when four armed gunman stormed a Russian concert hall and open fired before setting fire to the building. The Islamic State group took responsibility for what is the deadliest attack in Russia in two decades.

The County of Rockland along with its municipal partners are on alert following the FBI Warning and urge residents who see something to say something.
