Evansville firefighters to dedicate house on Sept. 11
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Firefighters plan to build a Habitat for
Humanity house and dedicate it Sept. 11, a year after 343 New York
City firefighters died at the World Trade Center.
Evansville Fire Chief Mike Humphrey said more than 50
firefighters have offered labor, and those skilled in electronics,
plumbing and other trades also have volunteered.
The plan was approved Tuesday by the board of Habitat of
"We always like to have groups volunteer their time to help our
community, and it's even better that the firefighters, who already
do so much for our community, want to do more," said Sally Gries,
a spokeswoman for Habitat of Evansville.
Firefighters John Gaddis and Tony Hertweck hatched the idea for
building the home.
"After Sept. 11, so many people did something for the fire
department," Gaddis said. "We wanted to give something back."
Department officials are hoping additional sponsors will come
forward. Habitat homes cost about $40,000 to construct.
