When Gig Harbor Fire and Medic One were notified that they were to receive one of the artifacts from the World Trade Center, four of their department members gave up their own time and resources to make the 8 day journey. They drove 24 hours a day to complete the first step of this amazing tribute to all who lost their lives on that fateful day.
