Port Authority identification card
This identification card was carried by Lt. Robert Cirri, a Port Authority Police officer, who died in the World Trade Center attack. Context:
After the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, Port Authority Police Department officers from around New York City rushed to the scene to aid in the evacuation. They directed the building tenants to safe exit routes and began to search the building for people in need of help.
Rober Cirri and four fellow Officers, Chief James Romito, Capt. Kathy Mazza, officers James Parham, Stephen Huczko, and Paul Laszczynski, were killed in the collapse of the north tower as they carried a woman, incapable of using the stairs, in an evacuation chair. The Port Authority Police Department lost thirty-seven officers in the attacks on the World Trade Center.
