Rowan shared what it was like as a firefighter for the New York Fire Department the day hijacked planes struck the World Trade Center.
Although the majority of the students at the assembly were not yet born when 9/11 happened, Rowan urged them to get to know the victims of the horrific attack. 343 New York firefighters died that day. Most of Rowan's crew of 15 did not survive.
“Please never forget us, we’ll never forget you”- Ofc. Dan Rowan tells the students at Catalina Foothills HS. Many of them weren’t born when 9/11 happened. He got standing ovation. #NeverForget
