Historical Notes Brooklyn-born Michael Roberts lived in Roxbury in Queens. Michael, who was single, often volunteered to cover holiday shifts at FDNY Engine Company 214 so fellow firefighters could be with their families. Michael’s badge number was 6611—the number carried by his father and an uncle before him. On September 11, Firefighter Roberts responded to the Twin Towers. He was 31 years old.
