"On September 11th, 2001, eleven firefighters were on FDNY Rescue 5 and each lost their lives trying to save others at the World Trade Center. Even with the loss of its crew, their truck was able to go back into service and continued to serve the residents of New York City until 2011, when it became part of the Remembrance Rescue Project. The Project with Rescue 5 is currently heading to Riverside County(CA) to coordinate activities as an educational tool, historical artifact and memorial.
CAL FIRE/Riverside County Fire Department will serve as the regional host for the Project's Coast To Coast Remembrance Tour. "It is a great honor to be a part of this project and able to help people across the country remember and learn from a true piece of American history," said Project Member Scott Vaughn. More.
