A part of recent history is being housed by the Sunrise Beach Fire Protection District now through the end of the year.
A former New York City fire truck arrived in Sunrise Beach Oct. 8. Rescue 4 was one of the five heavy rescue apparatus that responded during the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center Sept. 11, 2001.
Rescue 4 and its sister rig Rescue 5 are now owned by a non-profit organization and are in the process of making their way across the country to raise awareness and remembrance of the sacrifices that were made on that tragic day.
"It is a great honor for our organization to be entrusted with such a significant piece of history," Sunrise Beach Fire Chief Dennis Reilly said. "We hope to be able to share this with our community and the region."
Rescue 4 will be on display at Fire District Headquarters at 30 Porter Mill Spring Rd. from 7-8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16. The public may also see the apparatus anytime the firefighters are in quarters at Fire Station 2 on Highway TT. The Fire District will also consider requests for local civic and non-profit groups to display the truck. Anyone interested in doing this should contact Reilly at 573-374-4411.
