11 years ago on a clear sunny day like today, our country became the center of a terrorist attack. Almost 3,000 people lost their lives that day including 343 firefighters, EMT/Paramedics and Police Officers.
As an EMT, this day greatly affects me. There is a brotherhood/sisterhood among Emergency Services that I can't even describe.
I was a senior in college at Lock Haven University 11 years ago. I worked part-time as an EMT and I was part of our task force. I was placed on call in case we were called to NYC. Lock Haven is only 3-4 hrs from NYC in Northcentral PA. We didn't get called but were kept on call for a week.
