“Billy was my point man. He always wanted to take charge. He always wanted to be the one going in. If something needed to be done, you didn’t need to ask. It was already done by Billy. He showed the way. He was a leader. He was all passion and all heart,” - Captain Richard Blasi of ladder 135, speaking to the character of Firefighter William N. Tolley, who is seen here operating at a 5-alarm fire in Queens, just over a week before he made the Supreme Sacrifice on April 20, 2017.
