9/11-related deaths on the rise; 5 ways to honor 9/11 first rsponders
September 11, 2019 | View as webpage
Dear EMS1 Member,

It’s been 18 years since coordinated attacks killed 2,996 people and injured over 6,000 others at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on Sept. 11, 2001. For those in the emergency services, this day will always be one of poignant significance, inspiration and a part of the public safety legacy. We’re taking a moment today to reflect and to honor the first responders who sacrificed their lives, and those who are still facing the devastating long-term health consequences after responding and assisting in the recovery efforts.
