Before 11 September 2001, Firehouse 10 on Liberty Street in Manhattan was known as a “slow house” – most of the buildings they protected were built of steel and concrete and had efficient sprinkler systems, so their job was regarded as a fairly easy one. It was the perfect place for keen probies to learn: “Putting the wet stuff on the red stuff – that’s what you live for,” says one. But then two aircraft were flown into the Twin Towers, and the crews of Firehouse 10, which lay directly in their shadow, were tested to their limits and beyond.
The passage of time hasn’t dimmed the horror of the events: you can hear it in the cracked voices of the surviving firemen as they recall what they witnessed and endured. It’s harrowing to watch [PS: do not delete this – it is a hard watch], but what you also get is the strength of the fellowship of the “brothers”, whose duty to protect overrode any sense of self-preservation.
Exploring the fire station that now stands as a memorial to the fallen heroes of the 9/11 terror attacks in New York City with rare archive footage and testimony of the surviving firefighters to reveal their courage and the sacrifices they made. As the only crew stationed within Ground Zero, its members were the first to arrive on the scene and saved thousands of lives in the minutes following the first plane strike.
