EMS Council of NJ 9/11 Memorial Ground Breaking

Please join us and share the EMS 9/11 Memorial Ground Breaking 
 Sunday - September 10th at 1 PM.  

Officials from the EMS Council of New Jersey (EMSCNJ) and Keansburg Borough are planning a (Sunday) Sept. 10 groundbreaking in preparation for a memorial featuring a piece of World Trade Center steel. The monument will be the country’s first dedicated solely to the emergency medical personnel who responded that day.

“After an exhaustive search, we chose Keansburg for our memorial for several reasons,” said EMSCNJ President Joseph G. Walsh, Jr. of Neptune. “It’s easily accessible and an area well served by EMS volunteers. In addition, its beautiful Raritan Bay coastline offers a view of the Manhattan skyline, which will help visitors appreciate the memorial’s significance.”  

"We are honored the EMS Council of New Jersey chose Keansburg to host its 9/11 memorial,” said Mayor George Hoff. “To be able to display a piece of the World Trade Center is very humbling. It will be displayed alongside the borough’s 9/11 memorial to make sure the tragic events of this infamous day and the lives that were lost will never be forgotten."

"The memorial will include information about the horrific attacks, and a seating area for quiet reflection,” Walsh said. “It will be dedicated to the EMS responders who gave their time and some, sadly, their lives to assist and protect the public. It will be the only monument of its kind in the USA to be dedicated exclusively to EMS," Walsh added. “Although it’s a sad reminder of that horrific day, the Twin Towers steel beam also represents spirit and resilience, which are necessary attributes for EMS providers. We are immensely grateful for being entrusted with its guardianship.”
