Steve Buscemi hosted a virtual fireside chat on Tuesday in support of Friends of Firefighters, which offers essential programs and services to help active and retired firefighters and their families support, prioritize and clearly communicate their physical and mental health needs during stressful times. The chat celebrated the work of firefighters amid the pandemic, and featured some of Buscemi's former co-stars and famous pals such as Judd Apatow, Julie Bowen, Dan Bulla, Tim Herlihy, Kevin James, Colin Quinn, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Jackie Sandler, Rob Schneider and Kenan Thompson. Nancy Carbone, executive director for Friends of Firefighters, shared at the top of the event how the organization was launched shortly after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 to address the severe need for counseling for firefighters, active or retired.
