On October 19th, a memorial service was held for FDNY Fire Protection Inspector William Klobus who died suddenly on October 3, 2022 while on duty. Chief of Department John Hodgens said, “Today we’re joined here to recognize a man who served his country and served his city with pride and distinction. William J Klobus died earlier this month while on duty as a Fire Protection Inspector in our Bureau of Fire Prevention. For the last ten years, he was an important member of our team. He helped to ensure the safety of New Yorkers, and his fellow FDNY members, through his dedicated work as an Inspector. As a veteran of the United States Air Force, who served our country in the Vietnam War, he served his country. He was brave and courageous, and lived a tremendous life of service to others. All of us in the Department are so grateful for all he did – in every uniform he proudly wore - and we will never forget him.”
