Proud To Be 100% Volunteer Organization.

Our Mission

The Remembrance Rescue Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to historical preservation coupled with youth education in order to honor the 343 fallen FDNY firefighters and the thousands who continue to suffer today. The Project is a volunteer organization with firefighters from across the country donating their time to educate society, especially youngsters in a kid-friendly environment, so that they may understand the historical importance of 9/11 and how it is carried forward today. With your support, we can continue to serve as a one-of-a-kind, rolling educational platform to preserve history and share stories that provide the impactful accounts of heroics and sacrifice.
