Butch retired from his position with Verisk/ISO last year.

9/11/01 Never forget means never forget
We as citizens must remain vigilant, we are the first line of defense!

We honor all of the EMERGENCY SERVICE WORKERS, FIREFIGHTERS, POLICE, EMS and THOUSANDS OF CIVILIANS who lost their lives on 9/11/01.
The city of Jersey City is located a short 3.7 miles from lower Manhattan and the WTC site, less than 10 minutes by vehicle.

On September 11, 2001, at 0915 hours the Jersey City (NJ) Fire Department responded to a request for mutual aid at Box 001 (Manhattan). It was an attack on the World Trade Center (WTC) towers. The department dispatched a specialized truck, Mask Service Unit, to assist in refiling air cylinders at the scene.  Battalion Chief (BC) Cobb was assigned and responded to the WTC incident; he arrived shortly after the initial fire department units.

This presentation follows members of the Jersey City Fire Department as they are dispatched to assist the FDNY & Port Authority PD just 10 minutes after the second tower was struck.  This is a street level view of Jersey City Fire Department search & rescue operations at the WTC site.

Also a unique look at rescue operations inside the PATH tunnel and Jersey City Exchange Place subway station, connecting to the Manhattan WTC station. During the WTC attack nearly 4,000 victims, civilians, police and firefighters were transported via boats to the Jersey City water front for medical assistance. The program will review that enormous undertaking.
