Fire-Dex Remembers: A Look Back at 9/11

Candle_2Fire-Dex Remembers is a video series that was recorded two years ago, right before the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Everyone at Fire-Dex has a different story, but everyone was affected.

One such story comes from a Regional Sales Representative Lance Matiste.  He was in a meeting with FDNY just a few blocks from the World Trade Center when the attacks happened. Lance recalls that day: “It was like a scene out of a movie, like the world ended or something. You’re going through the biggest city in the United States and there was nobody.”

Pat Burrows was several states over, working at Fire-Dex headquarters in Medina, Ohio when the planes hit. Pat still remembers the feeling of shock that she felt that day. Through the years it has served to remind her that when she sews gear she is “sewing the lives of our fire fighters out there.”

No matter what you were doing, everyone remembers where they were on 9/11/2001. You can watch Lance, Pat, and other members of the Fire-Dex team tell their stories by watching Fire-Dex Remembers 9/11 on our blog.
