"Thanks to Audiblie"

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.
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.
"cool under fire"
