Publisher's Summary

In August 2005, the New York City Fire Department released approximately 23 hours of radio dispatch audio recordings from the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. This came after The New York Times, along with eight 9/11 families, sued to win public dissemination of the transmissions, as well as hundreds and hundreds of pages of transcribed oral histories.As a public service, Audible has selected nearly three hours of key, unedited transmissions by Manhattan Fire Radio. Fire Department dispatchers and firefighters in the field are heard describing the planes hitting the World Trade Center (included in Track 1), the collapse of the first tower (Track 2), and the collapse of the second tower (Track 3). These transmissions begin around 8:46 a.m. Eastern time and end at around 10:22 a.m.

cool under fire

What can one say? These are the Fire Dispatch recordings from 9/11. As a unique look into how the NY Fire Dispatch operated on the worst day in recent American history, it is amazing. Cool heads prevailed, and kept things going.

Historic

Interesting account of Heroism, but it is difficult to understand what is being said at times due to the method of recording.
