In addition, the RRP provides support to children of fallen firefighters throughout the country, while also working to restore Rescue 4 from 9/11 as an educational tool, historical artifact and memorial. Rescue 4 was among the five specialized rescue companies that responded to the World Trade Center immediately after the attacks. All eight firefighters assigned to Rescue 4 were killed. Rescue 4, created in June 1931 and stationed in Queens, N.Y., is the only fire apparatus from 9/11 operating outside New York City.

FDNY Rescue 4 will be at the Fox River and Countryside fire station from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 40W361 Route 64 (just west of Burlington/LaFox roads). Breakfast is from 9 a.m. to noon.

Members of the RRP will be on hand to answer questions about the rig and the firefighters assigned to it, and will be selling T-shirts and accepting donations to assist in their charitable causes.

For more information about Rescue 4 or the RRP, contact Fox River and Countryside Captain Scott Vaughn at (630) 584-0995 or visit therrp.org.
