A NY PJ discusses the local response.

Sep 10, 2021

This is an exceptional discussion from  the FDNY EMS Med Director on scene, roving CCPs, loss of C2, the human toll in the middle of it all, losing his senior enlisted, and getting knocked out by the blast wave from the second collapse, regrouping and finding work. One of the many heroes, thousands of them from 11 SEP 2001.

The 106th Rescue Wing is on Long Island. Many of our Guardsmen are NYC Firefighters and Police Officers. In this series we will hear from New Yorkers who responded to the attacks here in New York. All of this on the backdrop of the news of the last few weeks. From our FDNY, NYPD, EMS first responders, and our citizens who perished in the attack,  to our Marines we recently lost, I hope we will honor and remember all Americans and partner forces who have made sacrifices during GWOT.

Chief, recently retired, was one of 6 PJs on site for the attack on the Khobar Towers 25 JUN 1996 in Saudi Arabia during Operation Southern Watch. There were 19 deaths and 498 injured making this one of the largest Military Mass Casualty Responses.

This is an exceptional discussion starting with his career over 31 years and a snapshot into PJ Ops over these 3 decades.

He then discusses living through the blast and beginning to search and triage, organize, treat, then support the AF Doc for hours of treating casualties.

This is riveting, informative, and a document of the largest military MCI that I am aware of.
