Fire and Rescue Department will take part in remembrance of 9/11

091021Firefighterflags0On 9/11 – 20 years later, WE REMEMBER.  WE HONOR THE MEMORY AND ACTIONS OF THE FALLEN.  WE WILL NEVER FORGET!  The Marshfield Fire and Rescue Department will be participating in a local event at 11 a.m. in Veterans Park with area veterans in a short ceremony to remember that day.  At the fire station we will have a static display that will include 343 American flags placed in the lawn to remember the 343 firefighters of the FDNY that perished that day.  In addition, we will fly the Freedom Flag under the American Flag at the station throughout the month of September.  Weather dependent, we will fly our 10’ x 15’ American Flag from one of our trucks until sunset.  

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the fire station will not be open to tours but the public is welcome to stop by and pay tribute to those who died that day. 

The Freedom Flag was created in remembrance of 9/11. It’s symbolism invokes a solemn remembrance of the events of that day and all of the lives which were lost. With honor, reverence and respect, we chose to fly the Freedom Flag to ensure that WE WILL NEVER FORGET those who lost their lives and those who responded heroically on that day.
