9/11 Memorial Reading
September 11 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
On Saturday, September 11, 2021, the Valley Center Fire Protection District will be hosting their annual 9-11 reading of the names and patriot day celebration at Fire Station 1 from 0900 to 1100 hours. This year is especially important as it is the 20th anniversary of our promise to Never Forget the day our Country was attacked in an act of terrorism causing the death of 2996 people including 343 Firefighters, 23 Police Officers, 37 Port Authority Officers, 189 Pentagon Employees and 64 American Airline Employees. We also remember the thousands of Soldiers, Airmen, Seamen and Marines who have collectively paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect America and our way of life from those who would do us harm and continue reading the growing list of Firefighters and rescue workers who have contracted a myriad of illnesses and died since digging on the pile to retrieve our fallen brothers and sisters.
