“Just a Short Person with Four Legs”: Remembering FEMA-Certified K-9 Cowboy
FEMA handler Dave Richards of Utah Task Force 1 and his FEMA-certified K-9, Cowboy, arrived in New York City on September 16, 2001, just five days after the attacks.
The 9/11 Memorial & Museum has created a series of reversible masks to support frontline responders and the institution during this temporary closure.
Through a distribution partnership with the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, we’ve committed to a one-for-one “buy one, give one” opportunity where essential workers will receive a mask for every mask purchased.
Each mask has a message of hope and strength to remind us that we’re in this together.
During this challenging time, masks have become an important symbol that reflects so many of the values we cherish at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. It shows concern for the most vulnerable in our community, unites us in solidarity with those on the front lines, and gives us hope that, if each of us does our part, we can protect each other from COVID-19.
Masks can be purchased via the 9/11 Memorial Museum Store.
As we continue social distancing, this new chapter invites us to look within ourselves and renew our commitment to care for one another.
