The Remembrance Rescue Project is a not-for-profit created by firefighters to restore, preserve and share Rescue 4 and Rescue 5 from 9/11 as educational tools, historical artifacts and memorials. The Project strives to keep the memories alive of those lost on September 11th and all firefighters killed in the line of duty every year.
