The Remembrance Rescue Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to historical preservation coupled with youth education. The Project is 100% volunteer organization with firefighters from across the country donating their time to support two mobile exhibits that serve as teaching tools for modern American history.

The Project is tasked with the humbled responsibility to preserve and share two surviving FDNY rescue trucks that responded to the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. The Rescue trucks are accompanied by a series of artifacts recovered at Ground Zero with kid-friendly illustrations and age appropriate curriculum to encourage active learning and inspire service within each community. The Project is driven to allow kids and adults the opportunity to see, touch and learn about history from “larger than life” artifacts and stories of heroics and benevolence that carry forward today.


The Project brings history to students and their communities and bridges the geographic gap between the events that occurred in New York, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania to students across the country. The Project also bridges the time gap from the events of 2001 to students of today.

The Project works with fire departments across the country to host the surviving rescues trucks, associated artifacts and curriculum throughout the year. The Project coordinates with communities to facilitate temporary exhibits and educational events.

The Project also continues to produce a living history platform for teachers in K-12 to utilize as a flexible curriculum to incorporate as a preface to each visit.

The Remembrance Rescue Project is recognized as tax-exempt by the IRS under Section 501(c)(3). EIN- 45-3011338
