Never Forget!!!!!

Crazy to think 9/11 was 14 years ago.
Everyone remembers the horrors of that day but looking back it is still jaw dropping to consider.
There were 2,977 people killed on 9/11.
In NYC there were 411 emergency workers killed.
343 fire fighters.
37 Port Authority Police Officers.
23 NYPD officers.
8 emergency medical technicians and paramedics.
The firefighters who were killed came from 75 different firehouses across NYC.
Over the course of three hours 121 engine companies were deployed including 62 ladder companies and 27 fire officers. All off-duty firefighters were recalled on that morning.
In addition to the regular fire apparatus the FDNY also deployed its only Haz-Mat unit, its mobile command center, its field communications unit, its five rescue units, both of its high-rise units, six of its squad units, and one of its two tactical support units.
Of the fire fighters killed there were 17 chiefs. 23 Captains. 44 Lieutenants.
141 Firefighters died in the North Tower.
191 Died in the South Tower.
Because the North Tower was hit first all the firefighters (from nearby firehouses) rushed to that building. The firefighters who came from further away (and showed up later) ended up going into the South Tower.
Because the plane that hit the South Tower crashed lower on the building (and at a higher rate of speed) the South Tower collapsed first. This is why most of the firefighters killed were stationed at firehouses further away from ground zero.
Overall in the North Tower 1,402 employees died.
Overall in the South Tower 614 employees died.
There were 115 nations that lost citizens on 9/11.
The ration of Men to Women who died was 3:1.
The age of the greatest number who died was between 35 and 39.
There were 291 bodies found intact.
There were 21,906 remains found overall.
There were 1,717 families who received no remains.

The percentage of Americans who knew someone hurt or killed in the attacks: 20%

The estimated amount donated to 9/11 charities: $1.4 billion
The estimated amount of insurance paid worldwide related to 9/11:$40.2 billion
