Protecting, helping 9/11 first responders

In light of the recent death of NY State Trooper Michael Anson from World Trade Center-related cancer, Ayla Ferrone of News10 Albany interviewed some other Albany area recovery workers and reminds them where to get help for site-related health issues.

Approximately 70,000 people have registered with the World Trade Center Health Program, which monitors recovery workers, lower Manhattan residents, workers, and students for illnesses related to the aftermath of the terrorist attacks.

If you were in Lower Manhattan on September 11, 2001 or worked the recovery efforts and are experiencing health issues, please click here for information on the VCF program or here for information on the World Trade Center Health Program.
