Walking to never forget 9/11
September 14, 2023
The Green River Fire Department hosted their annual "Never Forget" 9/11 Memorial Walk on Monday evening. The walk took place at 6:45 p.m., approximately 12 hours after the time of the attacks on September 11, 2001. The decision was made to host the walk in the evening so more people could participate. The walk started at Fire Station 2 on Shoshone Avenue. Firefighters, law enforcement officers, local leaders, and community members gathered to walk together and ring the bell at the end of the walk. "The ringing of the bell is a sign of honor and respect for all who had made the ultimate sacrifice and has become a time-honored tradition," GRFD explained in a Facebook post about the event. "This will be done in memory of the 71 law enforcement officers, 343 fire and EMS personnel, and the 2,564 civilians that lost their lives on that fateful day."
