Tuesday 11 September 2001
Our country, the world would shake as the following events unfolded as we were attacked by not a nation, but an ideology carried out by the acts of evil men.
Flight 11 crashes into the north face of the North Tower (1 WTC) of the World Trade Center, between floors 93 and 99. The aircraft enters the tower intact.
Flight 175 crashes into the south face of the South Tower (2 WTC) of the World Trade Center, between floors 77 and 85. Parts of the plane, including the starboard engine, leave the building from its east and north sides, falling to the ground six blocks away.
Flight 77 crashes into the western side of The Pentagon and starts a violent fire.
The South Tower of the World Trade Center collapses, 56 minutes after the impact of Flight 175.
Flight 93 is crashed by its hijackers as a result of fighting in the cockpit 80 miles (129 km) southeast of Pittsburgh in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. Later reports indicate that passengers had learned about the World Trade Center and Pentagon crashes and were resisting the hijackers. The 9/11 Commission believed that Flight 93's target was either the United States Capitol building or the White House in Washington, D.C.
The North Tower of the World Trade Center collapses, 1 hour and 42 minutes after the impact of Flight 11. The Marriott Hotel, located at the base of the two towers, is also destroyed.
Five stories of part of the Pentagon collapse due to the fire.
7 World Trade Center, a 47-story building, collapses.
This cowardly, heinous act of terrorism would bring our people together. Race, Religion, Political Affiliation, Gender, etc NONE OF THAT MATTERED. Our Great Republic and her people were under attack. We rallied for each other.
On this date 2,977 people perished in the attacks on our homeland. Of them were the following 1st Responders.
343 FDNY Fire Personnel
71 Law Enforcement from NYPD & NY/NJPA
55 Military Personnel @ the Pentagon
We honor those who have fallen, we honor those who gave every last measure of themselves in saving countless lives evacuating structures but ultimately loosing thier lives in the process. We are grateful for thier selfless sacrifice for their fellow man.
In the years following over 1,000 more have passed on and more are sick as a direct result of the attacks that occurred that day. Please keep these men and woman, as well as thier families in your thoughts and prayers today, and everyday.
NEVER FORGET, NEVER TAKE FOR GRANTED EACH DAY THAT COMES ON THE SUNRISE.
WE WILL NEVER FORGET!!!!! ... See MoreSee Less

Today is Suicide Prevention Day
September is Suicide Prevention Month.
We have all been touched in our lives with loss in some way from Suicide. Whether it's family, friends, acquaintance, and yes even ourselves in thinking or attempting.
Learn the warning signs, look for the behaviors, and reach out to someone you see struggling. Save a life, help one another.
If you need that ear to listen, or shoulder to lean on, reach out to someone. YOU ARE NOT ALONE even if you think you are in your darkest times. REACH OUT, someone will answer.
To our brothers and sisters in Emergency Services, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!!! REACH OUT, we all have your back.....
Love yourselves, love your family, love your neighbors, and reach out when you need that little extra support and guidance.

To our Community, our Friends, and our fellow First Responders. Please see the attached bulletins
The worst heat wave of the season so far is setting upon us through next Tuesday 23 July 2019. Everyday with temperatures in the 90's and several with heat index's as high as 110° or above.
This weather can be deadly especially to the most vulnerable among us (elderly, children, those with preexisting respiratory/heart conditions, etc, and lets not forget our pets) so please watch out for each other. Look in on your elderly neighbors, and keep children cool and hydrated, keep water bowls filled and animals inside or in a cool environment.
If you are working outside in the elements, please use caution and take breaks (preferably in shade or Air Conditioning) and HYDRATE HYDRATE HYDRATE.
If you feel the effects of or notice someone suffering the effects of heat exhaustion/stroke, seek medical assistance immediately. Call 911.
To our fellow first responders, please watch each other, rotate crews frequently on the fire ground, and make sure you utilize rehab stations. HYDRATE HYDRATE HYDRATE. Strip off turnout gear in rehab, and get assessed by EMS.
The attitude of "I'm ok, not going to evaluation" is unacceptable. Think of yourself, your family, and your company and make the smart and proper choices.
Friends, be well and take care of each other. ... See MoreSee Less
