This project is being hosted by Newport News Firefighter’s Association this summer and will be touring the entire Hampton Roads area. This project is a traveling Sept. 11 memorial and museum.
The Rescue Remembrance Project is a group of retired firefighters who purchased the damaged fire trucks from the Sept. 11th attacks. They purchased the trucks out of pocket and restored them. They now travel the country with them, displaying the rigs as educational tools, historical artifacts, and memorials to help educate the public.
The Project is an educational effort focused at society, especially youngsters who were too young to actually understand the events of September 11th and what that day means to members of the fire service and the country as a whole.
The Project strives to keep the memories alive of those lost on September 11th, 2001, and all firefighters killed in the line of duty every year.
The Rescue 4 rig is the unit that will be displayed in Franklin. This rig was severely damaged and all six firefighters who responded on the rig died when the World Trade Center buildings collapsed.
The Project is 100% operated by firefighters from across the country volunteering their time. There are no paid members within the Remembrance Rescue Project. Donations are used for fuel, maintenance and travel costs for the Rescues.
