World Trade Center beam arrives in Evesham for future 9/11 memorial

On September 12, 2001 members of the Evesham Township Fire Department assisted in rescue efforts at the site of the World Trade Center. Now 11 years later, as the 1WTC building rises in its place, a steel beam from the collapsed towers arrived on Friday at the Evesham Fire-Rescue Main Street Station. It will be the center piece of a planned 9/11 Memorial.

In the coming months, a permanent web link to the WTC Memorial will be added to the Evesham Fire-Rescue homepage. This link will track the history of the steel from its location in the Twin Towers, reflect on the impact of 9/11, and track the progress of the memorial while under construction.

On hand the Friday event were New Jersey Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno and Evesham Fire-Rescue Chief Ted Lowden, Congressman Jon Runyon (NJ-3rd) and Evesham Mayor Randy Brown.
