Both Champion and second place teams received individual awards of the FRC coin.
The coin was specifically designed for Arlington County to recognize the First Responder response to the events of September 11, 2001 in the days immediately after the attacks on America. Depicted are the twin towers in New York City and places where Americans lost their lives that day, Somerset, Pennsylvannia, New York City and Arlington, Virginia. This coin 'celebrates' the response of our Country's First Responders and the resilliency that America demonstrated that day and in the days that followed. We remembers\ the words of the Arlington Fire Chief who said when told of the first First Responders Cup Tournament in 2001,
"What a statement it makes to the world as to the resilliency of the United States that there is such a tournament taking place literally feet away from where the attacks of of September 11th took place to 'celebrate' the response of our country!"
The coin cannot be purchased, it only can be 'earned' through the individual and team performance during the course of this tournament. Recipients of First Responders 9/11
