The events of 9/11 have forever impacted our nation. Thousands of innocent citizens perished when the towers collapsed. 343 firefighters from FDNY and 60 police officers with the Port Authority, New Jersey and New York Police Departments lost their lives during the initial response. Hear firsthand from FDNY firefighters how the events unfolded in front of them. This high-tech, 53-foot trailer, transformed into an 1100 square foot exhibit, provides visitors an opportunity to explore artifacts from the towers, see documentary videos and listen to recordings of first responder transmissions.
This is only the second time the exhibit has come to Wisconsin since it was created in 2013. For more information visit: http://tunnel2towers.org/our-programs/911-never-forget-mobile-exhibit/
