First responders, community members gather to reflect on Sept. 11
If you ask just about anyone where they were on September 11th, 2001 most could tell you instantly.
On this September 11th if you asked first responders where they wanted to be many would tell you together sharing memories and honoring the victims.
First responders and community members met at Fire Station Number One in Beaumont to reflect on the events of that day.
Beaumont fire chief Anne Huff spoke during the ceremony about the importance of first responders having a servant's heart.
Other speakers included the police chief, council woman Gethrel Williams-Wright and firefighter Brad Penisson. They honored the men and women in New York who rushed to help after the terrorist attacks and told first responders here how much they're valued.
To a firefighter, the ringing of the bell means the emergency is over and it's time to return to the station. The bell honors fallen first responders and symbolizes the end of their duty.
The sacrifices made by first responders during and after 9/11 inspired a firefighter trainee to begin a life of service.
Once the ceremony ended the first responders had the opportunity to be served. H-E-B provided lunch to the police, paramedics, and firefighters.
