FDNY, NYPD, PAPD and the NYC Building Trades, recognized the world over, have come to define the safety, security and spirit of New York City — these are the expert volunteers of HEART 9/11. From the ashes of 9/11, this team leverages their unparalleled experience, including the extensive WTC site response and recovery, to respond and rebuild in times of crisis. HEART 9/11 has responded to the bayous of Louisiana, the plains of Oklahoma, the streets of Port Au Prince, Haiti, and local communities following Hurricane Sandy. Our members have shared our hard learned lessons and skills.
