Supplement, Out of the Darkness
  • Volume I: Beyond Ground Zero

    The New York EMS story on 9/11 is one of great pre-planning, major command decisions and rigid FDNY EMS adherence to MCI practices on a daily basis that kept hundred of EMS providers out of harm’s way and resulted in many lives being saved. You will read about circumstances that were beyond the control of EMS responders on the scene, particularly as the towers collapsed unexpectedly around them. You will also read about sights and sounds that were beyond imagination and still haunt those who survived to tell their stories to the JEMS editorial team.

  • Volume II: Safe Harbor

    Few in the EMS and national media reported on the tremendous EMS triage, treatment, decontamination and emotional support rendered on the piers across the Hudson River in New Jersey after being evacuated from Manhattan by a flotilla of police, Coast Guard, pleasure craft and ferry boats. But JEMS has.

  • Volume III: Strike on the Pentagon

    JEMS editor-in-Chief A.J. Heightman met with key Arlington County Fire Department responders that served in command and EMS management roles on 9/11 to get their perspective on an incident that was overshadowed by the collapse and high death toll experienced in New York City after the collapse of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. This special report on the Pentagon response presents EMS command and patient care aspects carried out by emergency responders that bright, sunny morning in Arlington, Va.

  • Volume IV: On Stable Ground

    This special JEMS report also presents important experiences and operational challenges experienced by rural EMS providers in the Shanksville/Somerset County (Pa.) region on 9/11. Crew in this beautiful, quiet valley had their lives suddenly turned upside down when a terrorist overtook United Airlines Flight 93 and attempted to use it as a bomb against our government in Washington, D.C. Instead, because of the documented heroic efforts by passengers on that doomed flight, the plane was forced down into the peaceful countryside of Western Pennsylvania.
