Lt. Warren “Smitty” Smith  2

09/09/11: An airplane struck the South Tower, the second tower struck, just as Lt. Warren “Smitty” Smith and the seven other members of his crew arrived with the Ladder 9 truck (pictured pre-Sept. 11, 2001) at the World Trade Center. With debris falling, the crew parked their rig a couple of blocks away from the towers. After they headed for the North Tower, burning debris landed on Ladder 9, causing a fire and heavily damaging the truck. Even so, the department salvaged the truck with extensive repairs, one of the only fire trucks saved from the “collapse zone” around the towers. Photo courtesy of Warren “Smitty” Smith
