One month ago today members of our department gathered together with citizens, the Lexington Fire Department, and local members of our armed forces to remember the innocent victims of the attack on September 11, 2001. Each participant chose a lanyard bearing the name and photo of one of the 71 law enforcement officers and 343 fire fighters who lost their lives that day. During the climb we rang a bell, said their name aloud, and climbed in honor of their sacrifice. We will continue the legacy of the brave men and women we lost that day and uphold the standard they set in community commitment and public service. To join us next year at the memorial, text “joinlexpd” to 859-658-1414.
