THE STORY:

Orio Palmer's Story

9/11/01

Battalian Chief Orio Palmer Documentary: http://youtu.be/pS1zsjDtbMQ?t=16m15s

On September 11th, Orio was able to single-handedly fix an elevator in the South Tower of the World Trade Center and take it up to the 41st floor sky lobby. Once there, he went on to run up 37 flights of stairs to reach the plane’s impact zone on the 78th floor. Orio was met there by Fire Marshal Ronald Bucca; they were the only first responders to reach the impact zone that day. There he reported, “Numerous 10-45s, code ones” or fatalities. Orio directed survivors of the impact how to get out of the building, relayed essential information to firemen below over the radio in an attempt to form a strategy to combat the flames and evacuate survivors, and brought comfort to those stuck & injured on the 78th floor by assuring them that help was coming.

Unfortunately, his efforts weren’t enough to prevent the buildings from coming down. Orio perished in the World Trade Center that day when it collapsed, along with 342 other members of the FDNY. Orio’s heroic efforts have been recognized in documentaries aired internationally on the History Channel, HBO, CBS and others.

"Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure. 
You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure."

Join Us!

Join us in running and walking as a team in the Tunnel to Towers 5K to celebrate the memory of Battalion Chief Orio Palmer along with the 342 other members of the FDNY that lost their lives on September 11th, 2001.

There will be a school bus leaving from the Palmer house at the address below by 7:30AM sharp for the starting line at a cost of $11 per person. We will all meet before the race at a pre-determined location in Brooklyn for a team picture by 8:45AM and after the race, we have reserved a room in the downstairs of The Dark Horse Tavern

There will be $4 Coors Lights, $5 Buds & Bud Lights, $14 Coors Light pitchers to quench our thirst and a menu to order food from for anyone looking to refuel after the race. Starting line meeting location TBD, updates to come.

Dark Horse Tavern: 17 Murray St. New York, NY 10007 between Broadway & Church St. in Civic Center, TriBeca
