Flags are on display today at all Menlo Park Fire District Fire Stations to pay tribute to the 343 FDNY Firefighters who lost their lives responding to the World Trade Center attacks of 9/11 16 years ago. A week after the attack, Fire District-sponsored Urban Search and Rescue Task Force 3 would travel to New York City to assist with rescue and recovery efforts already underway. “Displaying these flags for every FDNY Firefighter that lost their life on 9/11 is our way of remembering not just their sacrifice and heroism, but also our vulnerability as a country…” said Fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman. “Those of us on the front line of this struggle have not forgotten what happened.”
