A fire department in Warminster will be honoring those lost in the nation’s worst tragedy with a memorial service in the near future.
The Hartsville Fire Company will hold a 9/11 Flag Memorial and Memorial Service on Sept. 11. The Flag Memorial will consist of a display of 403 American flags on the front lawn of the Fire Station, located at 1195 York Road in Warminster.
“The flags represent the 343 New York City firefighters, 37 New York Port Authority officers and the 23 New York Police Dept. officers who died while saving others on Sept. 11,” the fire department said online. “Two additional flags will represent Volunteer Firefighters John Kulick and Tristan Smith who were killed in action in Iraq.”
A memorial service will be held at 7 PM that will include a reading of the names of the fallen Firefighters and Police Officers. The public is invited and attendees encouraged to assist with reading the names and retrieving the flags.
