FDNY Medal Day to honor 2 members who made ultimate sacrifice in their duties

The FDNY will honor two of their own who died in the line of duty on Wednesday.

The widow of Firefighter William Moon II will accept a Medal of Life named in his honor.

Firefighter Moon died during training at a Brooklyn firehouse last December.

Five people received his organs, including a 9-11 first responder.

The North Star Medal will be given in honor of EMS Captain Allison Russo.

She was killed in an unprovoked attack last September.

The 61-year-old veteran first responder was on duty when she was stabbed near her station in the Astoria section of Queens.

She was heading to a corner store to get something to eat when police say 34-year-old Peter Zisopoulos stabbed her multiple times, killing her.
