Fire and EMS agencies honor 9/11 with social media tributes
Agencies around the country are honoring the 18th anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks with remembrance posts
By News Staff
Today marks the 18th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that occurred in New York, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania on Sept. 11, 2001. Each year, tributes flood social media honoring the first responders who lost their lives running into the danger while America was under attack.
The posts are a sobering reminder of what the nation faced on that early September morning, and the continued sacrifices first responders made and continue to make every day.
Earlier this year, Congress voted to fully fund the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, ensuring those who answered the call on one of the nation’s darkest days would be taken care of as a thank you for their service, and a promise to never forget.
