UNIONDALE - A one-of-a-kind Sept. 11 exhibit will open to the public this Friday.

The exhibit, called Lives of Service, tells the story of 18 firefighters from Nassau County who died during the terror attacks by using a collection of the fallen heroes' personal belongings.

From Kevin Prior's scuba flippers to Lee Fehling's bagpipes, it's an intimate look at who they were as men.

North Bellmore Fire Chief Angelo Catalano says for the last six months, he and his peers at the Nassau Firefighters Museum have worked to create a personal look at the heroes.

The exhibit also honors 22 city firefighters who once worked in Nassau County. Altogether, 343 firefighters died on Sept. 11.
