Stacey was a police patrol officer on Long Island on 9/11. What many didn’t realize was that she had been receiving ongoing and extensive training in disaster response, and was a member of a federal disaster response team that was always ready to deploy in the event of a major disaster.
On the morning of September 11, 2001, Stacey had just finished a shift, and was getting ready to run some errands as she heard chatter about a an airplane hitting the Twin Towers in lower Manhattan. Stacey was immediately activated for duty with the federal government, and reported to the heart of chaos, right in the middle of Ground Zero, where she spent the next 23 days.
