FDNY chief, highest-raking firefighter to survive the collapse of the World Trade Center to speak at APSU

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – On the morning of September 11th, 2001, Richard “Pitch” Picciotto answered the call heard around the world. In minutes he was at ground zero of the worst terrorist attack on American soil, acting boldly to save innocent lives as the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center began to burn—and then to buckle.

Already a veteran of terrorist attacks, Picciotto was present fighting a similar battle after the World Trade Center Bombing in 1993. Again inside the North Tower, where he found himself years earlier, he focused his concentration on the rescue efforts at hand. But it was there in the smoky stairwells that he heard and felt the South Tower collapse. He then made the call for firemen and rescue workers to evacuate, while he stayed behind with a skeleton team of men to assist a group of disabled and inform civilians in their struggle to evacuate the inferno.
