HASTINGS – Hastings Fire and Rescue, the Hastings Police Department, and Livingston Butler Volland Funeral Home and Cremation Center are holding a 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony tomorrow at the City Council Chambers at Hastings City Hall.
The Ceremony will get underway at 9:00 and will end at 9:28 with the tolling of the bell, the time that the North Tower at the World Trade Center collapsed.
Captain Darin Clark, of Hastings Fire and Rescue, says the anniversary of 9/11 is a sad day for America and first responders.
Police Officers, law enforcement, fire and rescue. It’s definitely a very special day for us because the guys that were on duty that day just stood around and stared in disbelief. Especially when you started hearing about the amount of loss of life that was involved there. It just kind of talks about the brotherhood of us. Even though we weren’t there, we didn’t meet those guys, we still were sad.
The purpose of the ceremony is to remember all of the public servants that gave the ultimate sacrifice and to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11. The event is open to the public and free.
