Late Internal Bleeding drummer/ NYC FDNY member William Tolley was honored by New York City’s Fire Department on Wednesday (26th) in a special ceremony to unveil a street sign in his memory. The sign was placed on 66th Pl. in Ridgewood Queens, which is located near the firehouse Tolley used to work for. Tolley died on April 20th, 2017 while responding to a call in Queens, New York and tragically fell off a fifth-story roof.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio issued the following statement:

“Today we gathered to write the name of Firefighter William Tolley into the history books. He gave his life for our city because he cared that much for his fellow man. To his family and to the men and women of the New York City Fire Department, New York City will be eternally grateful.”
