Responding to 9/11: The Days After feat. John Adler Part II
Play • 11 min

On Sept. 11, 2001, hundreds of law enforcement officers from numerous agencies responded to the attack on the World Trade Center towers. 

In this special series of interviews, we discuss how officers responded to the attack, then worked through the days and months of trying to recover evidence and remains, and finally fought the political battle to provide medical care for 9/11 first responders. 

In this episode, we are joined by Jon Adler, former president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA) to hear about his mission at Ground Zero the day after, his role on-site, and lingering health issues.
