Remembering 9/11

remembering 9/11

In honor of the first responders that run towards danger, committed to serve and protect, willing to sacrifice their very lives…


The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 caused more first responder deaths than any other single incident in American history.9/11 officers down


One officer was killed when United Flight 93 crashed into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania as he and other passengers attempted to regain control of the plane from the hijackers. 71 officers were killed when the two World Trade Center buildings collapsed in New York City. Dozens more have passed away in the years following 2001 as the direct result of illnesses contracted while working in the hazardous conditions immediately following the attacks in New York.



There were 75 firehouses in which at least one member was killed. The FDNY also lost its department chief, first deputy commissioner, one of its marshals, one of its chaplains, as well as other administrative or specialty personnel. All together 343 firefighters made the ultimate sacrifice.


We pay tribute to the law enforcement officers, representing 10 different agencies, who died as a direct result of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
