Description
The monument expresses gratitude and concern for firefighters of the City of New York, especially their response to the attacks by terrorists on, and following the collapse of, the World Trade Center’s twin towers on a clear Tuesday morning, September 11, 2001. Three-hundred-and-forty-three firefighters were killed. Notably, the statue was created originally to pay tribute to four firefighters who fell while fighting a Seattle, Washington, blaze known as the Pang warehouse fire, January 5, 1995. This sculptural unit, one of four created in the period following that inferno, was brought to New York after its 9/11 attacks as an expression of “appreciation and compassion” for the New York Fire Department (NYFD) and its firefighters. • The firefighter statue and its accompanying American flag are constructed of a rough-hewn metal. Several high school students, from 1995 to 1998 and with the assistance and direction of art educator Randi Hubbard, created the sculptural pieces. Students and teachers from the two Washington state-situated high schools were associated with Hoquiam High School and nearby Aberdeen High School, in towns of the same names, some 125 miles southwest of Seattle. Steve Fullerton, Mac Yowell and Bob Hubbard also contributed materially to these statue and flag efforts. • These design and construction efforts by students and teachers -- on behalf of other students and teachers -- have been fittingly situated at New York City’s EMS Academy. An education and training unit of the NYFD, it is situated on a campus of 55 acres, a part of Fort Totten, now a historic site, on the shore of Long Island Sound. The Academy as well as the high school students and teachers are considered sponsors of the monument. The setting for the memorial is the entrance to the Academy’s CFR building, at 405 Whistler Avenue, Bayside, New York, county of Queens.
