Remember. Reflect. Recommit. Annual 9/11 Memorial Service Planned

On September 11, 2001 343 FDNY firefighters, 23 NYPD officers, 37 Port Authority Police, and eight private EMS/EMT paramedics made the ultimate sacrifice answering the call. On Friday, September 11, 2015, the AVFD will host a memorial service commemorating the lives lost and the heroism displayed during the terrorist attacks on our nation. The program will begin at 8:30 a.m. at Company 1 located at 25 Darling Drive.

Featuring a member of the CT Firefighter’s Pipe and Drum honor unit; the Avon High School Chamber Choir; a poetry reading by Avon Police Offer Sue Kassey; and 9/11 reflections by CT Air National Guard Colonel Roy V. Walton, Commander of the 103rd Mission Support Group, the public service will commemorate the lives lost during the horrific terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington D.C. and over the skies of southwest Pennsylvania.

All are welcome to attend and renew the promise Americans made 14 years ago when we vowed to never forget, to always remember.
