First responders

9-11 10th Anniversary Flag of Heroes

Today is 9/11/11. Ten years after the terrorist attack of 9/11/01. Today at Furman Park, Downey celebrated the first responders.

We honor the first responders to the World Trade Center, many of whom lost their lives when the towers collapsed. The Flag of Heroes lists all of the first responders who lost their lives. Lonnie Croom, Downey's Fire Chief, said that since 9/11, fire stations have adopted the motto "We will not forget you."

But we don't just look back. Looking forward, we honor today's first responders—the firefighters, police, and emergency technicians who daily risk their own lives to help keep us safe.

Thank you!
