Remembering 9/11

LAS VEGAS, NV - SEPTEMBER 11: Las Vegas Fire & Rescue members, including Fire Chief Mike Myers (R) salute behind a piece of steel from the World Trade Center during a tolling of the bells service held to mark the time the South Tower of the World Trade Center fell during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on September 11, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Las Vegas is joining the rest of the nation in commemorating the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks which resulted in the deaths of nearly 3,000 people after two hijacked planes crashed into the World Trade Center, one into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia and one crash landed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Las Vegas Fire and Rescue Station #5, led by Tim Szymanski, paid respect to the twentieth anniversary of 9/11 and to those who perished that day, especially the 343 New York City firefighters killed in the collapse of the tower. The commemoration at Station 5 includes a piece of steel from one of the towers on display, the planting of a pear tree on the station grounds, the tolling of the bell relayed over department radios, the singing of the National Anthem by NYFD member Frank Pizzaro, and finally, a moment of silence.
