|ENGINE 911 FOUNDATION
This project was started in November of 2002 when a group of volunteer firefighters from the Milford Township Fire Department overwhelmingly agreed to restore a 1962 Ford F-600 fire truck. Like many other organizations throughout the United States, the volunteers wanted to create a tribute to the 343 Firefighters killed as a result of the attacks on the World Trade Center.
The truck is being restored as a tribute to FDNY Firefighter Eric Olsen, in honor of the 14 members of Engine 4/Ladder 15 who perished on Sept. 11, 2001, and in remembrance of all 343 firefighters who died while bravely discharging their duties that day. This is a small way for us to help future generations know what they did, appreciate their heroism, and be inspired by their sacrifice. We must insure that these firefighters are designated as role models.
