and Atlas Bronze Casting.

The figures of the firefighters are 1 and 1/2 life size bronze sculptures each standing approximately 9 feet high.

After the tragic events of 9 11 01 brought on by terrorist attacks, the people of the United States of America
were in shock. 
As rescuers from across the nation worked to save
those who were still alive amidst the wreckage of the
World Trade Center, 
A flag was raised by three firemen.
They did it as a symbol of hope to help themselves and their
fellow rescuers to go on amidst the destruction.
They did not realize they were being photographed at the time.
 But Thomas E. Franklin, a photographer for the New Jersey Record saw and captured an image of that flag being raised which went on
to remind the people of the entire country that
We are United.

This bronze monument stands to honor the brave firefighters who ran up the stairs answering the call on 9-11-01.
