9-11-2001 We Will Always Remember

Along with the lowering of the Flag at all CAL FIRE Units throughout the state for today, this message was read today by all CAL FIRE Emergency Command Centers;

"The date 9-11-2001 will be forever be remembered as one of the most significant events in the history of our nation, and in the history of our profession. All CAL FIRE Units throughout the State will observe a moment of silence commemorating the eleven year anniversary of 9-11 in honor of the 3,014 people, including 343 fellow firefighters whose lives were lost. This moment of silence coincides with 0846 Eastern Standard Time, the time the first plane struck the towers on this date 2001."
