POST 9/11 - Firefighting Operational Changes 

Sudden Building Collapse - An Independent Evaluation of a New Risk in Operational Fire-fighting 



We are firefighting professionals, current and retired, as well experts in the study of the 9/11 incidents and the various post-incident governmental and private investigations.

Our motto has long been “Never Forget, Never Again.” However, we choose to honor our fallen Firefighter brothers with a commitment to properly examine ALL the evidence and let it take us to the truth of what really happened on that terrible day, so that when we “Never Forget”, we remember what actually happened, and can therefore genuinely work towards a real possibility of “Never Again”.

We see 9/11 truth as a ‘Peace Movement’, a chance to prevent past mistakes, such as the many “Wars on Terror” which have been predicated upon false information and contrived consent. Truth must form the cornerstone of any good society or proper democracy. Without truthful information, proper choice is impossible and democracy becomes an illusion.

Our intention is to create a compassionate community that respects truth and civil discourse so that we may all learn, gain a genuine and deeper understanding and hopefully increase the potential for a better future for all.





Firefighters for 9/11 Truth was founded in 2008, by a Seattle Firefighter named Erik Lawyer (retired in 2012 due to injury).  By 2010 more than 90 firefighters, and several hundred others had publicly signed a petition demanding an investigation that follows National Fire Investigation Standards, and many are still leading 9/11 Truth actions within the fire service & their own communities. Since 2008 another 240+ first responders and military members acknowledged their support and requested that their names remain private.  


Due to personal reasons beginning in late 2010, Erik chose not to continue with active leadership in the 9/11 Truth Movement.  In 2015, the name of the website was changed to Firefighters for 9/11 Truth & Unity as a symbol of planting a seed for a a progressive movement that unites through genuine care, collective intelligence and responsibility that fosters a positive vision of a brighter future for all. (an excerpt from an interview addressing the name change).  ​

As of September of 2019, Firefighters for 9/11 Truth is reorganizing.  More to come.
