Reports from Firefighters at the Impact Zone Inside the South Tower

Excerpts From Firefighters' WTC Tape on 9/11

For well over a year, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey refused to release the audiotape of firefighters' communications from the World Trade Center during the September 11 attacks. In early November 2002, the tape was released to the New York Times, then to other unspecified "news outlets" (according to the Associated Press). To my knowledge, the NYT is the only outlet to post excerpts from the tape; no one has yet posted the entire thing.


  1. I attended St. Ann's school with Orio, 8th grade class of 1970. He was a great kid and although its been 38 years, I have never forgotten him. I just found out last week he passed on 9/11. God bless him and his family. Joe Vetri
