WTC Program

Welcome to the FDNY Clinical Center Website

The FDNY CCE and its World Trade Center (WTC) Health Program provide comprehensive physical and mental health services to all active and retired FDNY members who responded to the 9/11 attacks. This program is based within the Department’s Bureau of Health Services (BHS) and evolved from efforts that began decades before September 11, 2001, and continued uninterrupted on September 11, 2001, treating injured FDNY rescue workers (firefighters and emergency medical services [EMS]) and civilians at ground zero, even as the towers fell. This treatment continued in the disaster’s aftermath to provide physical and mental health treatment to our rescue and recovery workers in the days, months, and now years, after.

Patient Process

The Program provides a comprehensive monitoring and treatment exam, at no cost to you. The exam is very similar to those active members receive.
