Piece Of Steel From Twin Towers Helps Firefighters Remember Fallen Colleague

A 12-and-a half foot piece of steel from one of the Twin Towers, destroyed in the attacks on September 11th of 2001, is now on display in Whitpain Township. The second Alarmers Retrieval team arrived at hanger-17 in New York last Wednesday morning and returned late Wednesday afternoon with the 3,000  pound piece of steel. Executive
Director, Jamie Haddon says, the beam of steel, which will be made into a monument, has special significance.

“One of our brothers John Kulick, Hatboro Firefighter and career firefighter for Whitpain Township Fire Department enlisted in the military reserves after he saw everything we saw on September 11th and he was deployed to Iraq and unfortunately he lost his life. So bringing the monument back to the Montgomery County area and being able to put it as a new focal point to our new building, our new Whitpain Township that we’re fund raising for, it’s just a great opportunity for us to honor him and everyone else who allow us to enjoy the freedoms that we have.”


Haddon adds, 11-hundred other fire departments requested the piece of steel. The steel will eventually be placed outside the new Whitpain Township Emergency Services
Center. The Cost of the new facility is estimated at 1-million dollars Dollars. 500-grand has already been raised for the project. They hope to have the monument
finished by September 11th
