9-11 Memorial: A Tribute to First Responders
On September 11, 2005, the City of O’Fallon dedicated a memorial to America’s First Responders: the police, firefighters and paramedics who are the first to respond to an emergency.
The 17-foot monument was created from 22 tons of steel salvaged from the destruction of New York City’s World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. A plaque memorializing the victims of the terrorist attacks on the nation honors the 346 firefighters and 37 police officers who perished as they attempted to rescue victims trapped in the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers.
Inside City Hall, a section of the World Trade Center’s red steel core is displayed in a Plexiglas case. The material for both monuments was presented to O'Fallon by the City of New York in 2001.
