CLARKSVILLE FIRE RESCUE TO HOLD ANNUAL 9-11 CEREMONY
On Tuesday, September 11, 2012, Clarksville Fire Rescue will be holding the annual ceremony honoring fallen firefighters and victims of the 9-11 tragedy. The event will begin at 6:00 p.m. at the Main Fire Station, 802 Main Street, in Clarksville.
“This is the 11th anniversary of the 9-11 attack and, in many ways, it doesn’t seem possible that more than a decade has passed since that day,” said Mayor Kim McMillan. “This remembrance ceremony is an important part of offering our continuing thoughts and prayers to the families of the fallen and to show our gratitude to those brave men and women who protect us every day.”
“As firefighters, we have the privilege of working to protect our citizens every day. Every single man and woman in uniform understands what that means and our priority is their safety as they do their jobs. This 9-11 ceremony gives us time to stop and really reflect on the courage and commitment shown by our firefighters, rescue workers, police officers, military men and women and first responders. We consider this ceremony a great honor, not just our duty,” said Fire Chief Michael Roberts.
All members of the public are invited and encouraged to attend.
