GLEN COVE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A Long Island firetruck that aided in calls to countless fires, saved numerous lives and even responded to the 9/11 terror attacks is embarking on a new journey overseas.

At 10 a.m. Wednesday, the Glen Cove Volunteer Fire Department will bid farewell to Ladder 5211, bound for Dublin, Ireland.

There it will be part of a ceremony marking 20 years since 9/11.

The truck was retired two years ago after being in service since 1987.
