Firefighter Douglas Miller, “Daddy” to his three young girls, used to fashion a “basket” of rope to cradle their hips when he would lower them one-by-one out the window for the family fire drills. Miller, 34, had been with the FDNY for almost 6 years on 9/11. He also taught at the Fire Academy, was a trained electrician, and loved to scuba dive. On the side he volunteered as the Chief of the Mill Rift Fire Department in his wife’s hometown in Pennsylvania. He met his wife when he was only fifteen and fell in love right away, but waited until 22 to marry.
