OCFA 9/11 Remembrance Service

ORANGE COUNTY FIRE AUTHORITY DAY OF REMEMBRANCE INFORMATION 9/11/12

 The Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) will participate in a Remembrance Service to commemorate the eleventh anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
 This is in memory of the losses suffered at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and in
Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

 This service will provide an opportunity for the OCFA to conduct an organizational salute to all of those who lost their lives and pay a special tribute to the following uniformed services:
  • 343 fallen members of FDNY
  • 23 fallen members of NYPD
  • 37 fallen members of the NY Port Authority Police
 The services will be held at the flag pole in front of each OCFA Fire Station. The services will start at 8:46 a.m. and conclude at 9:10 a.m.

 The OCFA would like to extend an open invitation to all fire, law enforcement, EMS professionals, and the residents of our communities to attend the service at any one of our fire stations.

 Additionally, we would like to say “thank you” in advance to all of those who take time out of their busy schedules to pay their respects to all of the families who lost their loved ones during this tragic event.

 A list of OCFA fire station addresses can be found on our website. The media is encouraged to attend these services where photo opportunities will be available.

****REMINDER**** Every fire has the ability to be catastrophic. The wildland fire management environment has profoundly changed. Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
