Juneau firefighters and police officers spent a few moments Thursday remembering their East Coast colleagues who died during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Juneau Police Officer Paul Comolli, who spent over a week at Ground Zero helping with stress counseling for emergency personnel at the site, talks about the emotional and mental toll that such an event can take on those close to it. He also recalls why the clean-up at the World Trade Center site was still stressful five weeks after the attacks. This is an extended version of an interview that aired during Morning Edition.
