On Wednesday, September 11, 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.
“I am honored to participate in this ceremony dedicated to the memory of fallen heroes. “This annual remembrance ceremony is an important part of our ongoing thoughts and prayers to the families of the fallen. It is also a reminder to appreciate the men and women who continue to protect us every day,” said Mayor Kim McMillan.
“This annual ceremony is an honor for Clarksville Fire Rescue. We too rarely have the opportunity to stop and remember the people who walk into an emergency instead of running from it. “We can never forget the horrors of September 11 nor can we put into words our appreciation for the sacrifices of our fallen firefighters. But we can do our best to remember and honor their memories,” said Clarksville Fire Chief Michael Roberts.
All members of the public are invited and encouraged to attend.
