On Wednesday, September 11, 2019, Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby joined Fifth District Supervisor Kathryn Barger, City of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Los Angeles City Fire Chief Ralph Terrazas, Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore and Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva at the Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center to remember the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001.
This year marks the 18th year since the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington D.C. and the airplane crash in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Of the nearly 3,000 victims on that tragic day, 343 of them were firefighters, members of law enforcement and other first responders.
Every year, a memorial ceremony is held in remembrance of the victims and first responders who made the ultimate sacrifice. Additionally, the Los Angeles County Fire Museum in Bellflower also hosted a special event for the public to attend.
