Never Forget!

9/11-Today we remember the tragedy that occurred 14 years ago in New York City, The Pentagon, and Shanksville. We remember the lives lost that day and those who have passed on as a result of 9/11; countless members of the FDNY and other agencies, as well as the community that have suffered medical issues and complications. Everyone can remember what we were doing when the news came on; we remember like it was yesterday. We also remember many in our community that showed a renewed sense of pride for those in the emergency services field (Police, Fire, and EMS workers). As we reflect on 9/11/01, don't forget the first responders in our own community, they are the ones that face everyday problems and provide quality services day in and day out. Take time to say Thank You!
