The names of three firefighters who died within the last year will be added to the city's FDNY memorial on Wednesday.

Lt. Robert Ryan, who was killed in a Staten Island ceiling collapse in November, and Jamel Sears, who collapsed at the Fire Academy a few weeks later, will be among those honored.

Firefighter Paul Warhola, who died after suffering a stroke on Aug. 12 while responding to a Brooklyn fire, will also be memorialized on the statue in Riverside Park.

Ryan's and Sears' names will also be placed today on the Fallen Firefighters Memorial in the Empire State Plaza in Albany.

Warhola will be added to the Albany memorial next year.
