Yesterday, we paused to honor those aboard Colgan Air Flight 3407, February 12, 2009. It is our duty to apply the lessons learned from this tragedy and address the safety hazards caused by fatigue in order to maintain the safest aviation system in the world. We owe this to the crew of Colgan 3407 and we owe it to ourselves as aviation's first responders.

In memory of the Colgan Flight 3407 Crew:

Flight Attendant Matilda Quintero
Flight Attendant Donna Prisco
Captain Marvin Renslow
First Officer Rebecca Lynne Shaw
Captain Joseph Zuffoletto, (off-duty)

Three years ago, in recognition of those who lost their lives and in tribute to the families who have valiantly fought to ensure their deaths were not in vain, we publicly launched our campaign to Fight Fatigue with 10 hours minimum rest and a Fatigue Risk Management Plan (FRMP) for Flight Attendants.

Today, we remember not only those who lost their lives in this tragedy, we also remember those who loved them.
