In a sign of support for its New York City Fire/EMS customers, Sansio is proud to become a Charter Member and Cobblestone Sponsor of the National 911 Memorial and Museum. The 911 Memorial will be dedicated during a ceremony with victim’s families on September 11, 2011, the 10th Anniversary of the attack, and will open to the public the following day.
“The fact that this memorial outlines the very footprints where these towers stood sends a message to the world of what we lost that day and how we’ve come together,” said 911 Memorial President Joe Daniels.
On the twin footprints of the towers are gentle waterfalls that empty into massive reflecting pools edged by bronze parapets with the names of the 2,983 people killed on 9/11 in New York, in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon, along with victims of the 1993 bombing at the World Trade Center.
The cobblestone that Sansio sponsored is in the Memorial Glade area, which is on the west side of the south pool. The exact location is shown below:
The 911 Memorial Glade area is designed for special gatherings and is outlined with several trees and benches for reflection with clear views of the museum and memorial pools.
At the time of the 9/11 attacks, Sansio was working with FDNY to pilot its HealthEMS ePCR solution. Today, Sansio is proud that its ePCR solution is assisting FDNY provide exceptional care to the citizens and visitors of New York City. Sansio looks forward to continuing its service to the Fire Department of New York and is thankful for this opportunity to remember those who cannot be with us today.
ABOUT THE NATIONAL SEPTEMBER 11 MEMORIAL & MUSEUM
The National September 11 Memorial & Museum is the not-for-profit corporation created to oversee the design, raise the funds, and program and operate the Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center site. The Memorial and Museum will be located on eight of the 16 acres of the site.
The Memorial will remember and honor the nearly 3,000 people who died in the horrific attacks of February 26, 1993, and September 11, 2001. The design, created by Michael Arad and Peter Walker, consists of two pools formed in the footprints of the original Twin Towers and a plaza of trees.
The Museum will display monumental artifacts linked to the events of September 11, while presenting intimate stories of loss, compassion, reckoning and recovery that are central to telling the story of the 2001 attacks and the aftermath. It will communicate key messages that embrace both the specificity and the universal implications of the events of 9/11; document the impact of those events on individual lives, as well as on local, national, and international communities; and explore the continuing significance of these events for our global community.
