First Responders Snubbed; Not Invited to 9/11 Ceremony

They were the first ones on the scene when the towers fell on September 11, 2001, but ten years later, the 9/11 first responders are being told that they will not be invited to take part in this year’s ceremony at ground zero. The city announced that due to security and space issues, there’s no room for the first responders. Instead, they’ll be invited to a private ceremony on a different date

Retired NYPD officer Anthony Flammia discussed the snub with Gretchen Carlson, saying, “I’m disgusted.”

He believes it is a total disrespect to the responders.

Flammia had to retire from the force due to illnesses suffered as a result of being on scene at ground zero.
