Firefighter who survived September 11 working to ensure others aren’t forgotten

On November 25, 2015, Bill Kiser of the Charlotte Observer [NC] interviewed retired FDNY firefighter Peter Blaich who survived the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Blaich says, “It’s important to remind people about it [the attacks], because it’s being forgotten on a level. To me, the greatest disservice I could give the guys that I worked with is to let that memory go away.”

The article misstates the number of victims (there were 2,973 people murdered in the attacks on all three sites).
