Day 281: Res4cue

The Remembrance Rescue Project is a not-for-profit created by firefighters to preserve awareness to the importance of 9/11 through the stories from Rescue 4. Rescue Company 4 was created on June 1, 1931 and has been stationed in Queens, NY. September 11, 2001 FDNY Res4Cue responded to the WTC with 8 firefighters that morning. All 8 firefighters from Res4cue were lost that day. In the aftermath of 9/11, Rescues 1 and 2 lost their rigs at the WTC, and those of Rescues 3 and 5 required major repairs before being placed back into service. Immediately after 9/11, Rescue 4 was the only rescue company covering the City of New York.
Rescue 4 is currently the only fire apparatus from 9/11 operating outside NYC. The Remembrance Rescue Project allows for Rescue 4 to serve as a mobile memorial to Educate, Honor and Remember the events of 9/11 in towns 
throughout the country. 

The Remembrance Rescue Project provides direct support to children of fallen firefighters, while working to restore Rescue 4 from 9/11 as an educational tool, historical artifact and memorial. The Rescue also serves as a memorial to all firefighters lost in the line of duty throughout the country each year.
