NU Online News Service, Sept. 11, 13:45 p.m. – The Hartford Insurance Group, Hartford, and its subsidiary, Hartford Life, have offices at Manhattan World Trade Center Building 7, one of the World Trade Center complex buildings which was not hit today by terrorist attacks, spokeswoman Sue Honeyman said.
Hartford responded to the attacks on Building 1 and Building 2, the two WTC towers, by evacuating all employee from the World Trade Center offices.
“At this point, we don’t know many employees were in the [World Trade Center] office,” Honeyman said.
At 3:45 p.m., the spokeswoman had not heard any reports of Hartford casualties. “We’re optimistic,” Honeyman said.
In addition to evacuating the Manhattan World Trade Center offices, Hartford evacuated employees at offices in other high-profile areas of the United States this morning, and sent almost all employees home at 3 p.m., Honeyman said.
