WATERVILLE — Each year the Emergency Services students at Mid-Maine Technical Centers Emergency Services Program puts together a memorial to honor the fallen of Sept. 11 attacks. One or two students typically volunteer to coordinate the design of the project.

This year’s design represents the two memorial pools protected by the tree that survived. Names of the 343 firefighters and EMTs are represented on American Flags lining both pools and hanging off the tree. The design was coordinated by Kylee Morrissette and Hunter Guptill and 25 students worked on the project.

Each year students in the EMS and firefighting programs take a trip to New York City to visit ground zero. The trip, coordinated by Tom Savinelli, typically is a three-day trip where students walk ground zero, go to the 9/11 memorial and meet some of the survivors of the attacks.

Those who would like to make a donation for this year’s trip, can mail checks payable to MMTC New York Trip, Attention: Billy Hawkes, MMTC, 3 Brooklyn Ave., Waterville, ME 04901.
