On the morning of September 11th, 2001, one of the greatest tragedies ever to hit America happened in New York City. At 8:45 am the first of two airplanes hit the World Trade Center. The Central Park Medical Unit had an ambulance en route at 9:03 am. Our dedicated volunteers remained in continuous service for days, on ambulances, bikes, at local hospitals, in triage units near Ground Zero, and throughout the city, helping those in need.

Please join us in honoring the memory of our many fallen brothers and sisters in uniform who gave their lives in the heroic effort to save others at the World Trade Center. The members of Central Park Medical Unit had the great privilege of working closely with many of these heroes. All of us in the Emergency Services feel the loss of such good men and women. They can never be replaced, but the work they started can be continued by those of us who remain. We mourn for all who lost their lives in this horrendous terrorist attack.
