dc.descriptionTim Brown moved to New York to join one of the most revered Fire Departments in the world, the FDNY. He soon became best friends with his much-admired mentor, Captain Terry Hatton of the elite Rescue 1. Although Tim had moved into the Mayor's Office of Emergency Management, both men were called to the scene of the World Trade Center on 9/11. Soon after, Tim saw Terry for what would be the last time. Struggling to stay alive as Tower Two collapsed, Tim ran to the lobby of the Marriott hotel and found a support column, he wrapped his arms around it, holding on and hoping he would survive. Tim and a number of survivors found their way out, escaping the debris and ran north. Tim looked over his shoulder and saw Tower One lean over. He knew Terry was on the upper floors. All he could do was to continue running and try to live. Tim looks for opportunities to serve his community and nation, but faces ongoing challenges of grief, post-traumatic stress and survivor guilt from the loss of his colleagues and friends on 9/11.
