On September 11, 2001 343 brother firefighters made the ultimate sacrifice fulfilling the oath they took to protect lives and property. Hundreds of Newark firefighters joined FDNY personnel and firefighters from around the metro area in a desperate rescue effort to save lives the first few days after the Towers came down. None knew the conditions to which they were responding. They only knew the need.
This is an oral history of Newark firefighters who responded to the World Trade Center on 9/11 and in the weeks following the collapse.
