METCOM 911 staff created this moving commemmorative video on 9/11/2015.
On September 11. 2001, the nation watched in horror as the World Trade Center towers were attacked with hijacked commercial jet planes with our own citizens on board. Another plane crashed into the Pentagon. Yet another, whose passengers got wind of the awful plan and struggled with their captors, was forced to crash in a Pennsylvania field. While many citizens were unable to take their eyes from the television coverage, hundreds of police officers, fire fighters, and medical personnel rushed into these devasting scenes to lend assistance. Many gave their lives that day to rescue as many of their fellow Americans as possible. Thousands were saved because of the efforts of these brave men and women. METCOM 911 and their affliated agencies observed a moment of silence in memory of those that fell in the line of duty that day. This video is dedicated to their memory.
