The number of New Yorkers getting treatment for illnesses that might be related to the toxic aftermath of 9/11 is slowly rising.
The National Institute for Occupation Safety and Health said Wednesday that as of Sept. 30, nearly 17,000 people had received care within the past year from health programs for people exposed to dust and fumes from the ruined World Trade Center.
That number was up about 7 percent from the start of the summer of 2009.
Most of the people getting care were firefighters, construction workers, police and other personnel who responded to the disaster.
About 2,500 neighborhood residents also got treatment within the past year.
