During his Lake Michigan College Speakers Series presentation, “Truth in History, Patience in Grief” Tim Brown shares his powerful story of survival and loss and of the heroes and horrors of 9/11.

Tim is a retired, decorated 20-year New York City Fire Department firefighter, a survivor of the 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, a first responder to the 1993 terrorist attack on the WTC, and a veteran of the New York Urban Search & Rescue Task Force team that responded to the 1995 terrorist attack on the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City. Tim lost 93 of his friends on Sept. 11, including his two best friends.

Following his last FDNY assignment with Rescue Co. 3 in The Bronx, Tim was Supervisor of Field Operations for four years in Mayor Giuliani’s Office of Emergency Management. Tim spent two years on special detail to the federal government, serving as a special assistant to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. While with the HHS Public Health Emergency Preparedness group, he was a founding member of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Through his role with HHS, he assisted Rhode Island Governor Don Carcieri with victim identification and creating and managing the family assistance program in the aftermath of the Station Nightclub fire that killed 100 people in 2003. He advised the Governor for nearly two years and helped Rhode Island rebuild its homeland security and emergency management organizations.

Since 2012, Tim has served on the U.S. Department of Defense’s 9/11 Prosecution Task Force in the case United States vs. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, et al. He is liaison to the 9/11 families, survivors, victims, witnesses, and other government entities for the lead prosecutor. He maintains a Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information clearance.

Tim has been a leader in defending the memory of those lost on 9/11 at Ground Zero. He is a media commentator on the subject, appearing on Fox News, CNN, MSBNC, and CNBC; dozens of local news programs; and in documentaries.
