9-11 Memorial Service Held at Richardsville Fire Department

Posted: Updated:

Numerous fire officials and community members gathered Monday morning to never forget the events of September 11th, 2001. At the ceremony, officials recalled the events of 9-11 where nearly 3,000 people lost their lives in various terror attacks in the New York area. Officials raised the American flag, then lowered it to half-staff where a moment of silence then took place. A piece of steel from one of the World Trade Centers sits outside the fire department as a constant reminder to those who lost their lives including the 343 firefighters killed in the attack. Those in attendance say it's a somber day, that even 16 years later, no American will ever forget. 

"Firefighters are firefighters across the Nation. We have a special bond, a brotherhood and again it's just a day that we need to step back and think and of course never forget the events of 9-11 and the loss of firefighters and emergency workers in New York City," said Richardsville Fire Department Chief Brian Lee.
