The Final Run Of Twelve Firefighters From Ladder 3

Ladder 3 was one of the first responders on-site at the World Trade Center. Without hesitation 12 firefighters ran into the North Tower in an attempt to rescue the men and women who were stuck inside.

Rescuing the North Tower

Men and women who were trapped after a plane flown by suicide bombers crashed into the building. The firefighters were led into the building by Captain Patrick Brown.

They went up to the 40th floor and had men to spare. There was a shift change right when the attack occurred, so both crews went to the site.

However, the brave crew did not survive the building collapse. Their truck was damaged in the collapse of the building.

The front apparatus was torn off and the ladders were ruined. The truck itself was a total loss.

Preserving History

The fire truck was saved and taken to JFK International Airport where it sat in hanger 17 for 10 years. In 2011, the truck was finally taken to its new home. With firefighters, family and friends of the 9/11 victims, the truck was lowered into the site where the towers once stood.

As family members talked about their loved ones and firefighters soluted, the truck was lowered 70 feet into its final resting place, the Memorial Museum.

The truck stands as a symbol of those who lost their lives not only from that unit, but for all the firefighters who died that day. New York City Mayor, the Commissioner of the New York City Fire Department and the current Ladder 3 crew were joined by 100 other fire fighters.

Survivors Memories

Mr. Wind remembers being on vacation at home when he was called into action. He saw his crews riding list and went on to search for them at Ground Zero.

At the ceremony, Michael Moran talked about how it was the first step in healing. His brother died while he was working with the Special Operations Command. Moran had been working the night shift and switched with the new crew in the morning.

He had driven that apparatus thousands of times and he said he felt like "he lost a part of himself that day. The crew was a tight knit group and spent a ton of time together.
