- 2,753 victims at the World Trade Center (including 343 firefighters, 60 police officers, and 8 private EMTs);
- 184 who died at the Pentagon;
- and 40 at Shanksville, PA.
There have also been about 1,000+ responders who have since passed due to 9/11 related illnesses from working at Ground Zero.
People often forget terrorist attacks against our nation began long before the 2001 attack and, with all the unrest around the world, we will continue to deal with threats going forward. But we need to remain calm about the threat of terrorist attacks since they are a low risk possibility, and we should all be vigilant.
Our company works very closely with first responders across the nation so we ask you to please remember the sacrifices many responders and volunteers gave so willingly on that day – and everyday – to keep us safe. Never forget…
