January 7, 2019 – As announced at this year’s September 11 commemoration at “The Rising” memorial at Kensico Dam Plaza, County Executive George Latimer is beginning efforts to construct a memorial to Westchester residents who have died from 9/11 related illnesses.

Latimer said: “Westchester is home to many heroes who ran toward the chaos on that fateful day – and in the days following it - in lower Manhattan. These heroes subjected themselves to various dangerous fumes and chemicals which caused permanent damage to themselves and deserve to be honored. We here in Westchester are going to honor them.”

To begin the work on this new memorial, which will stand on the ground of Kensico Dam Plaza near “The Rising” memorial, Latimer is asking members of the public who wish to be considered for the committee to create this memorial put their names forward.
