Skinner (with <b>Jimmy Bross</b>):</b><br></font> Re: Sept 11, 2001 Correction Volunteer Response <p>On Sept 11, 2001, after the WTC attack, the Department s Emergency Services Unit was assigned to assist with the WTC recovery effort. However, thousands of other Members of Service (MOS) were volunteering and being told there was nothing they could do. <p>On Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2001, those people were advised by the Department that the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner had submitted a request to the Mayor s Office of Emergency Management for help at the Medical Examiner s Office (Morgue). The volunteers would be tasked with helping to unload ambulances/trucks that were bringing in bodies/remains from people killed in the attack. <p>Volunteers began reporting to the Morgue that afternoon. I reported to the Morgue on the 4 x 12 tour on Sept 12, 2001. As one could imagine, it was chaotic. It smelled of death; the air was filled with dust, the area was cordoned off and people were scurrying around. There were policemen, firemen, medical personnel and correction officers all standing out in the [roadway] on 30th St. just off 1st Ave. <p>Sirens were heard throughout the area as responses all over the City were occurring. Crazies were calling in bomb threats and anthrax threats. Everyone was on alert for another attack. <p><table align=right width=410 border=0 bordercolor=blue><tr><td><img width=400 src="honor-fallen-mos.jpg"></td></tr><tr><td><font face=arial color=blue size=-1><b><i><center>Above image was part of Terry Skinner's 9-11 posting.

They [were] brought on gurneys to an outdoor area near the Morgue entrance.There people opened the bags and removed the bodies for forensic examination by medical staff. Volunteers from multiple agencies assisted medical staff in this process. <p>With staff from multiple agencies working there, many as volunteers, there was no clear chain of command, other than medical staff saying where to put a body. DOC members of service were gathered together and advised that although this was a volunteer effort, we were uniformed members of service and as such did have a chain of command. <p><table align=left width=410 border=0 bordercolor=blue><tr><td><img width=400 src="doc-9-11-morgue-hq-tent.jpg"></td></tr><tr><td><font face=arial color=blue size=-1><b><i><center>Above image was part of Terry Skinner's 9-11 posting. Captioned "DOC Tent - 30th Street & 1st Ave (Morgue)."</center></i></font></td></tr></table>We would work together, doing the same work but we would do so under the chain of command in an orderly and professional way. <p>Most people understood and went along without any problems. <p>We established teams, a team leader (usually a Captain) and five squad members. Anytime a truck or ambulance came in, a team would go out and handle the job (one team was enough to do the job and this prevented us from being on top of each other and in the way). <p>In doing this, we established order and through our behavior/performance, we established control of the area. We also decided that we would do whatever task the Medical Examiner s Office needed. Sometimes, this meant unloading supply trucks or clearing out storage areas. <p><table align=right width=410 border=0 bordercolor=blue><tr><td><img width=400 src="doc 9-11 command-tent.jpg"></td></tr><tr><td><font face=arial color=blue size=-1><b><i><center>Above image was part of Terry Skinner's 9-11 posting. Captioned "Command Post."</center></i></font></td></tr></table>We also set up a small ceremony, with all of our service members coming out and standing at attention when a uniformed member of service s body was brought in to the morgue. <p>Our staff on the scene worked tirelessly and selflessly at the task throughout the night. They stood out as professionals amongst those in the area, (which we later learned was noticed and appreciated by the Medical Examiner s staff). <p>As the night wore on, we received word that more and more staff were volunteering at their commands, and wanted to know where to report once they were off duty. The Control Rooms had rosters of volunteers and were advised to standby, as we didn t know the scope of the operation. <p>I contacted [DOC hq] . . . . I asked if I could continue to coordinate the effort going forward (I had been the Commanding Officer of the Criminal Justice Bureau which was now effectively shut down because of the attack  the Courts had closed). They indicated I could and authorized use of a Transportation Bus to shuttle staff to the site at the start/completion of tours. <p><table align=left width=410 border=0 bordercolor=blue><tr><td><img width=400 src="co-kathy-riley.jpg"></td></tr><tr><td><font face=arial color=blue size=-1><b><i><center>Above image was part of Terry Skinner's 9-11 posting.

The Control Rooms had volunteer lists and we just had to limit the number of volunteers on the scene (so we weren t stepping on each other s toes). We briefed the new volunteers regarding the operation as they arrived. <p>We continued this way for two nights and then on Friday, Sept 14, [DOC hq] advised me that the work effort was changing from a volunteer effort to a Departmental Operation. They had been advised by the Mayor s Office of Emergency Management that the Medical Examiner s Office requested that we be in charge of the effort (evidently, they preferred the sense of order that we had created in performing the task). <p>I was to select staff: an Assistant Deputy Warden and three Captains, as well as about twenty Officers to work at the Morgue Command. These people would be supplemented with volunteers. I selected an Assistant Deputy Warden and three Captains who had volunteered and then they chose Officers for temporary assignment. <p><table align=right width=410 border=0 bordercolor=blue><tr><td><img width=400 src="daily mass at morgue400.jpg"></td></tr><tr><td><font face=arial color=blue size=-1><b><i><center>Above image was part of Terry Skinner's 9-11 posting.

Further, I arranged for the Salvation Army to conduct prayer sessions for us. <p>We were now operating out of a tent and had another tent set up for mustering/roll call, which we converted into a chapel. Our Support Services Division had run electricity into the tent (tapping into a street light). <p><table align=left width=410 border=0 bordercolor=blue><tr><td><img width=400 src="DWIC-accepts-Award.jpg"></td></tr><tr><td><font face=arial color=blue size=-1><b><i><center>Above image was part of Terry Skinner's 9-11 posting.

The tent became an operating office and a rest area for staff working at the site (volunteers usually came after their regular tours and many times were exhausted). <p>We also had a team of dedicated volunteers from New Jersey Corrections that worked with us for quite some time. They worked their shifts in New Jersey, then traveled to NY and volunteered at the Morgue. <p>In November, 2001, when a plane crashed in Rockaway, all [DOC] morgue staff were ordered in and responded to deal with the situation. Some staff responded to Floyd Bennett Field and set up a temporary morgue. Others worked at the Morgue and assisted in bringing in the bodies, which had to be kept separate from all bodies brought in from Ground Zero or the Staten Island [landfill] site. <p><table align=right width=410 border=0 bordercolor=blue><tr><td><img width=400 src="doc-morgue-team-honored400.jpg"></td></tr><tr><td><font face=arial color=blue size=-1><b><i><center>Above image was part of Terry Skinner's 9-11 posting.

Also, for Christmas Dinner, my wife, my children and I volunteered through the Red Cross and served dinner to recovery workers at Ground Zero. <p>The DOC Morgue Command, operated Sept. 12, 2001  Jan. 20, 2002. <p>A noteworthy point was that, although DOC Members of Service who worked at the Morgue eventually received compensation for the time during which they volunteered (due to federal re-imbursement, members of service were later compensated for time recorded at the site), at the time they volunteered, they did so with no expectation of being paid. Further, all staff assigned at the Morgue Command were recommended for Departmental recognition medals; none received them. Their work was as selfless and honorable as could be. <p><table align=left width=410 border=0 bordercolor=blue><tr><td><img width=400 src="Spirit of Achievement Awards400.jpg"></td></tr><tr><td><font face=arial color=blue size=-1><b><i><center>Above image was part of Terry Skinner's 9-11 posting.

There were a number of celebrities present who participated in the ceremony. Paula Zahn of CNN presented the awards to DOC staff. Those staff members accepted the awards on behalf of all correction staff who had worked at the Morgue. <p>Jimmy Bross, Carol De Blasio-Tortorici, Richard Oliveri, Reggo Wilson: Folks, if I left anything out, please add to/correct this. Also, please tag others who were involved. It was a true honor working with the men and women who volunteered their services.
