A firefighter statue donated more than a decade ago to the people of New York after the 9/11 terrorist attacks finally has a permanent home.
After about nine years in storage, the original statue created for the Firefighters Memorial in Kingdom City is now on permanent display near Times Square in New York.
With the approval of the Missouri Firefighters Association, the firm that created the original statue donated it to the Federal Law Enforcement Foundation as a gift to all New Yorkers. The gift was made shortly after the terrorist attack that destroyed the World Trade Center in New York.
