  • 20 Years After 9/11/01
    Posted On: Sep 10, 2021
    It has been twenty years since the towers fell, yet there remains two enormous holes in the center of lower Manhattan... They are there to serve as our reminder to Never Forget those who unselfishly sacrificed their lives to save others... While there has been much healing as these 20 years have passed, there is still so much pain, suffering, and loss…. a loss that continues today, not from acts of terrorism, but from cancer.
     
    Not only is it important that we never forget those heroic firefighters that paid the ultimate price on that fateful day, but it is imperative that we pay tribute to and honor the thousands of firefighters who are dying today, right now, from the job they did working at Ground Zero and every day since.
     
    If there was anything positive that came from 9/11 it may have been the understanding of the deep commitment first responders have to their communities. Without hesitation, they are willing to give all, despite the consequences to themselves. It also clearly illustrated the occupational hazards of being a firefighter. We know with certainty that firefighters who worked on “the pile” in 2001, are dying of cancers from breathing in the air while searching for the remains of their brothers, sisters, friends, family, and community. It’s been twenty years and thousands of firefighters are still dying today. 
     
    This is one of the many reasons that the FCSN fights so hard to deliver firefighter occupational cancer awareness, education and training. We are on a mission to assist firefighters and EMS providers and their immediate families diagnosed with cancer by providing badge-to-badge support, training, education and guidance today and every day. 
     
    We ask you to please take a moment tomorrow and remember all of the 2,977 victims killed in the September 11th attacksThose who perished in New York City, the Pentagon and outside Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Please remember the 412 emergency workers in New York City who responded to the World Trade Center and paid the ultimate sacrifice.
    We will NEVER FORGET
