We felt the spirit of America in there--in that building with us.
It's one of the things that kept us going."
--Jon Hansen
Assistant Fire Chief, Oklahoma City
The devastating explosion that tore through the Federal Building in Oklahoma City on the morning of April 19, 1995, brought thousands of people rushing to help, hold, and heal. At the forefront of the gallant rescue effort was Assistant Fire Chief Jon Hansen, a career firefighter with twenty-two years' service.
Now Hansen tells us the intimate story from the front lines, paying tribute to the men and women who became heroes in the days following the most violent act of terrorism in America's history. In this ultimate behind-the-headlines account, Hansen describes his first-hand experiences, from organizing the massive rescue effort on day one, through the valiant work performed in the harrowing area known as "the pit," to the heroic acts of courage he witnessed in the face of unfathomable loss. Candid, compelling, and inspirational, OKLAHOMA RESCUE is a true testament to bravery.
"Chief Hansen has become the face of Oklahoma City, emerging as a symbol of this city's competence and compassion in the aftermath of the nation's worst terrorist attack."
