Rescuing the Rescuers Local responders to 9/11 reflect on 10-year anniversary By Sandy Brundage Almanac Staff Writer

I

t started like any other Tuesday. Ed Greene, then a deputy chief with the Menlo Park Fire Protection District, got a phone call around 3 a.m. about a wildfire that might need more firefighters. He went back to sleep. Another call came a couple hours later, talking about “deployment,” and was, he thought at first, related to the same incident. “I was hazy, having coffee,” he recalled. “I hadn’t looked at the TV. They said, you better go turn it on.” Afterward the chief went about his planned schedule, interviewing applicants

for jobs at the dispatch center, but said, “It was a weird, weird day.” It was Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001. Six days later he and the 66 other emergency responders of California Task Force 3 were at Ground Zero in New York City, trying to grasp the magnitude of the attack. Ten years hasn’t dimmed the pain. Or the pride. Rescuing the rescuers

The task force knew going in that they weren’t looking for survivors, or even anything recognizably human. The collapse of the Twin Towers pancaked 70 stories of reinforced steel into a 70-foot basement,

grinding bodies into the very dust the responders were breathing. Shirley Hammond and her Doberman, Sunny Boy, began searching portions of the site. Trained to track the living, Sunny had nevertheless acquired an ability to find cadavers. One day, a New York City chief asked for a dog-handler team to search a specific location, and Ms. Hammond responded. “There were four fellows with torches cutting beams,” Ms. Hammond recalled. “I assumed they were firefighters, searching for one of their own. Sunny kept returning to one area, and finally pawed a spot on the ground.”

Later one of the firefighters came up and put a hand on her shoulder. A search-andrescue veteran with 20 years’ experience, Ms. Hammond stopped talking for several moments to regain her composure. “He said, it was our brother.” There were living victims, however — the responders themselves. “Our job was not just to rescue people, but to rescue their psyches,” Mr. Greene reflected. “We’re not just using our fancy tools for recovery. Our job is to rescue the survivors.” California Task Force 3 wasn’t immune to the mental strain. Shortly after arrivSee RESCUERS, page 27

Trinity to hold multi-faith remembrance of 9-11

ing in New York, some of its members were dispatched to form a rapid-response team in case other attacks followed. The hairs on Chief Schapelhouman’s arms stood up as he talked about learning that the emergency responders were expected to be targets. Without telling their families, the team took DNA swabs of themselves. For identification. Just in case. And despite the overwhelming emotional support given to the responders, some moments still stung. “What makes it hard is when someone’s outside the site, holding up a photo of their loved one, and knowing that’s not what you found — you don’t want them to know what you’re dealing with. And the pull is to give them what they want; you have to get over it,” said Chief Schapelhouman.

Oklahoma, we used body bags.” As others searched for remains, Dave Hammond, Shirley’s husband, used his engineering expertise to keep the federal building from falling down while other responders were taking it apart. That experience stood him in good stead in New York, although the World Trade Center presented different challenges. “The most dangerous thing about that site was the footing, and the chemicals,” he said, then held up a photo of the debris. “The biggest thing for an engineer is getting your mind around what it is. The first thing you say is, ‘Oh ----.’ Then your training kicks in.” After Oklahoma, Mr. Hammond said, he would wake up at night, rocking back and forth in bed. Being on the periphery in New York, the sheer, unthinkable scale of the destruction made it easier to cope. The ‘WTC cough’

Oklahoma

The lessons that guided the team in New York were learned the hard way, at the site of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing in Oklahoma City in 1995. Both sites were graveyards, Chief Schapelhouman said, but Oklahoma was “a little house of horrors.” In New York City, remains were recovered using “little red biohazard bags. In

Some reminders of 9/11 are physical rather than psychological. At a reunion held about a month after the team’s deployment, the task force began realizing that 70 percent of their members had gotten sick, according to Chief Schapelhouman. Pneumonia in 20-year-old firefighters; lingering coughs; skin rashes; inexplicable nose bleeds. To this day, the chief struggles with the aftereffects. “I’ll never regret going to New

York, but part of what I wish I could undo is not wearing a mask because I was on the phone, on the radio,” he said. “When I get sick now, I get really sick.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention eventually established a health support program for 9/11 responders. Putting the dead to rest

On the fifth and 10th anniversaries of Oklahoma City, task force members traveled to the site, which Chief Schapelhouman said was critical in allowing him to move forward. “I saw a kid, maybe 1 or 2 years old, playing in the (memorial) reflecting pond and I realized he didn’t know what it was,” he said. “It symbolized that I had to let it go.” The same realizations for 9/11 might be harder to come by. The 10-year memorial in New York City this year excludes the responders, for reasons ranging from expense to security, according to the chief, who has held off on sending a letter of protest to the mayor in hopes that the decision would change. “What’s missing here is the deeper level of significance. Why not allow them to come in, let them try to find that closure?” Chief Schapelhouman said. Closure or not, Sept. 11 will never again be just another day for those who responded to Ground Zero. A

Trinity Church in Menlo Park is holding a remembrance service at 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, that will include representatives from the Christian, Jewish and Muslim faiths, and is open to everyone. “Our hope is not only to provide a simple prayer service to allow members of the community to pause, remember, reflect and pray for healing, but also to demonstrate that members of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian communities can come together in a way that promotes healing and peace,” said the Rev. Matthew Dutton-Gillett, rector of Trinity, an Episcopal church located at 330 Ravenswood Ave. at Laurel Street in Menlo Park. In addition to Trinity clergy, participants will include: ■ Rabbi Patricia Karlin-Neumann, senior associate dean for religious life at Stanford University. She is Stanford’s first chaplain from a tradition other than Christianity and is coordinating President Obama’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge at Stanford. ■ Rabbi Paul Shleffar is founder and director of the Center for Contemporary Jewish Spirituality. He is a student and teacher of traditional Jewish texts with emphasis on the Chasidic and Jewish mystical traditions. ■ Shahzad Chowdry is representing the Muslim community. An electrical engineer by profession, he is part of the ING’s Islamic Speakers Bureau, which is an outreach organization that promotes inter-religious understanding. The service will include prayers and brief readings from the sacred scriptures of the three faith traditions, and feature music from John Phillip Newell’s work, “Chanting for Peace.” At the end of the service, everyone will be invited to light a candle and move to the outdoor Peace Pole, where they can leave their candle at the base of the pole as a symbol of longing for peace.

Polo benefit in Atherton Honoring combat soldiers on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, the Wounded Warriors Polo Benefit will be held Sunday, Sept. 11, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Menlo Polo Club, 190 Park Lane in Atherton. Now in its second year, the event raises funds for physical rehabilitation of severely injured American soldiers returning from combat duty in Afghanistan and Iraq. This year the tournament will benefit two local organizations that rely on charitable donations to assist injured veterans: the National Center for Equine Facilitated Therapy in Woodside, and Quality Of Life Plus, a nonprofit that provides customized prostheses for injured veterans. The event will include an opening ceremony, wine tasting, two polo games, a carriage driving display, and a silent auction. The sponsor is St. Francis Commandery (Order of St. John, Knights Hospitaller). Visit woundedwarriorspolobenefit.org for more information and to order tickets.

Commemorative monument A commemorative monument, highlighted by a piece of twisted and rusted steel from the wreckage of the World Trade Center Towers, will be unveiled at 10 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, at the Kings Mountain Volunteer Fire Brigade firehouse, 13889 Skyline Blvd. in Woodside. The event celebrates the National Day of Service and Remembrance to honor fallen firefighters and 2,977 other victims who were killed in a terrorist attack 10 years ago. Protected by ribbons of steel in the shape of a globe, the piece of wreckage is mounted on top of a 3-foot stone pillar, located in a small garden adjacent to the firehouse, some six miles south of Highway 92. “This monument will serve as a constant reminder of the first responders as well as the military — and everyone who helps protect our homes and country,” said Steve Johnson, a member of the brigade and coordinator of the unveiling. The public is invited to the event. The monument was built with contributions from the local community.
