ACEC, UA Cope With Lives Lost

The American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) reports that at least five member firms located in or around the World Trade Center (WTC) were affected. Three of the firms have reported fatalities.

The Washington Group located on the 91st floor of the South Tower has confirmed one fatality, and 12 others are presumed dead.

The United Association (UA) is also reporting the death of four members at the WTC. Two other members, according to the UA, were injured during the attack.
