Today marks the 15th anniversary of the tragic terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. As a nation, we reflect on the lives lost and all of those affected by the events of that day.
The attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 affected the lives of many individuals, especially those responding to the emergency. Firefighters, EMTs, and other first-responders received large doses of asbestos exposure that is continuing to affect their health today.
Tomorrow marks the thirteenth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, NY. While the events that unfolded affected many individuals across the country, some of those present in the city that day are still struggling with severe respiratory illnesses caused by the dust and debris of the towers' collapse.
