POST Class 344 9/11 Healing Field PT Session
Utah POST instructor Sgt. Lauritzen brought Class 344 to the 9/11 Healing Field in Sandy City for a PT session designed not just to challenge the cadets physically, but to also give them a greater and deeper understanding of what it means to be a first responder and to be the person that people are counting on in their time of need.
“When I heard that Sandy City does this, the first thing I did was ask for permission to come over here and run one of my workouts,” he said.
“I want them to experience what they’re getting into as far as this career, in being involved in America, involved in what the flag represents.”
“And what it represents during 9/11 is when the crisis occurred, and the citizens ran out and ran away, all of the officers, paramedics, firemen and military all ran in to help and save.”
“So I wanted the cadets to feel that and be involved in what this represents.”
