Description
The memorial remembers 343 firefighters, members all of the City of New York Fire Department killed during their efforts to help people inside and around the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Buildings and people were attacked by terrorists who had hijacked two passenger jets in order to slam them into WTC towers 1 and 2, collapsing both buildings, as well as others, and destroying some 3,000 lives. That morning was Election Day in New York, under skies clear and cool. By day’s end, our election had been made for us -- and not democratically. • Amidst a garden-like setting, the memorial in its initial effort draws an observer’s attention to a flagstaff standing between two rock towers, falls of water dropping into a stone-surrounded collection pool. An attached plaque contains an inscription that makes clear the work’s memorializing intent. The remembrance’s design brings a visitor to a nearby piece of steel from the collapsed towers. A remembrance wall encloses the entire work; one may approach the enclosure by a pathway of paver stones which lead onto a circular plaza of memorializing brick. • The men and women of the EMS Academy (emergency medical services), a teaching and training unit of the NYFD, sponsored the memorial. A part of historic Fort Totten, the Academy is situated on a campus of 55 acres on the shore of Long Island Sound. Within Fort Totten, the location of the memorial is near the entrance to an Academy building at 325 Pratt Avenue, in Bayside, New York, county of Queens. The EMS Academy dedicated the memorial September 11, 2003.
