In honor of the 15th anniversary of Sept. 11, West Pierce Fire & Rescue will hold two brief public ceremonies in remembrance of the 2,977 victims killed on that date in 2001. Among the victims, 343 firefighters, 60 police officers and 55 military personnel paid the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.  
The first ceremony will be held at noon at Lakewood City Hall located at 6000 Main St. SW. An evening ceremony will be held at 6:30 p.m. at Station 31 in University Place, located at 3631 Drexler Dr. W. The public is encouraged to attend one or both of these events.
These ceremonies are one small way for us to not only remember those 2,977 victims in New York City, at the Pentagon, and in a meadow in Shanksville, Penn., but also to honor fire, police, and military first responders who serve and protect our families, our communities, and our nation, at home and abroad.
