Remembering Our Heroes on September 11
The terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 was a devastating event in American history. This attack claimed over 3,000 people and more than 400 police officers and firefighters. The courage displayed by these first responders saved the lives of many Americans.

As the towers of the World Trade Center collapsed, our first responders were determined to rescue as many people as possible. They diligently searched for missing people, treated the wounded, and cleared the rubble so life could move forward. Without their bravery, we would have lost many more lives.  The selflessness displayed that day and the weeks to follow showed the world America‚Äôs strength and compassion.  Without the daily sacrifices of our first responders, America would not be the strong, united country we are today.

We encourage the community to take a moment of silence tomorrow, Sunday, September 11 at 8:46 am in remembrance of those who lost their lives and for those who risked their lives for one another during this tragedy.

A special thank you goes out to all of our first responders for the daily risks you continue to take to protect our country. You are our heroes.
