Dear WAMC Listeners,

Today marks 12 years since 9/11. Two years ago, I was in New York City for the 10th Anniversary of the "Attack on America."

I wanted to share this important  story with you once again.

The nation is marking the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks - WAMC's regional coverage begins with Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Dave Lucas in Albany...

. . . . . . . . . . . . .

A solemn ceremony at the New York State Museum in downtown Albany started with a moment of silence at 8:46 am, marking the moment that the first hijacked jetliner crashed into the World Trade Center in 2001.

For the next six months some Vermont cellular telephone users will be able to text 911 emergency calls for help.  WAMC’s North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley reports…

Vermont's Enhanced 911 Board says that Verizon Wireless customers will be able to send a text message to 911 that will be answered at a public service answering point in Williston.

The people who receive the messages will coordinate the emergency response with the appropriate agency.
