Rescue Remembrance Project honors those lost in September 11, 2001 attacks
(GRAPEVINE-January 25, 2013) On September 11, 2001, FDNY (Fire Department of New York) Rescue 4 responded to the attacks on the World Trade Center. All of the responders on the vehicle were killed in the collapse of the first tower. Now one of two rescue trucks that are on tour in the U.S., FDNY Rescue 4 is part of the Rescue Remembrance Project, an educational effort aimed at those too young to remember the events of that tragic day as well as commemorating what September 11 means to fire service across the United States. The Rescue Remembrance Project is operated by firefighters across the country volunteering their time and is a non-profit entity, raising funds solely through donations and sales of t-shirts, caps and decals.
FDNY Rescue 4 will be in Grapevine on Saturday, January 26. The public is invited to come see the vehicle and learn about and remember the events of that day.
The truck will be available for viewing from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the parking lot at the corner of Main and East Franklin Streets, across from Willhoite’s, in Historic Downtown Grapevine.
For more information about the Grapevine event, contact Andrew Economedes at (817) 907-1931.
