Your Turn: Ground Zero Stories?
The collapse of the Twin Towers on 9-11 was a once-in-a-lifetime event, but the component parts of that drama are repeated thousands of times every day: airplanes flying overhead, rescuers responding to calls for help, and people depending on the high-rise building they work in to keep them safe. So in the four-plus years since, experts have scrutinized 9-11 for lessons to save lives in the future. That process continues tonight in Queens with a meeting on the problems with FDNY radios, which might have robbed firefighters of life-saving information. And over the next several months, experts in fire safety and behavioral psychology want to interview 2,000 people who made it out of World Trade Center 1 and 2 alive. Survivors can sign up for the study by clicking here.
