Hundreds of firefighters gathered Tuesday to honor late Hyannis (MA) Fire Captain Thomas Kenney, who died last week of occupational cancer. He was 65 years old.
“He was the guy,” Huber Heights (OH) Lieutenant (Ret.) David Gallagher told reporters for the Cape Cod Times.
Kenney was a nationally recognized instructor for Heavy Rescue Incorporated, taught at FDIC International, among many other venues, and wrote for Fire Engineering. He served with the Hyannis Fire Department for almost four decades, and was one of the first search-and-rescue responders on scene at Ground Zero in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks on New York City.
