At home and on his morning off on September 11th 2001 he reported to his precinct in East Harlem and then onto the World Trade Center. From September 11th, 2001 until January of 2002 he worked at the World Trade Center site.
During his career he was cited numerous times for conspicuous duties and once for personal bravery in which he slid on a life-saving rope down the rear of a burning tenement to search for trapped occupants.
Monument Mountain Regional High School junior Jacob Robbins was in preschool when al-Qaeda terrorists flew two commandeered aircraft into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, toppling the towers and killing more than 3,000. He recently visited the 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York City to find connections to a day he doesn’t remember.
