At 8:46 a.m. on September 11, 2001, a hijacked airliner struck One World Trade Center, putting a gaping hole in the side of the 110-story structure. Seventeen minutes later, another hijacked jet slammed into Two World Trade Center.

Port Authority Police, who were the first law enforcement personnel to respond to the terrorist attacks, quickly rushed into the burning buildings and helped to rescue thousands of employees. Some of them climbed high up into the burning towers to assist those who were seriously injured or trapped.

Thirty-seven of these heroic men and women were killed that day.
