VIDEO: In honor of the 22nd anniversary of September 11th, the LaGrange Fire Department commemorated the day by walking 2,200 steps in honor of the fallen first responders.
“I think the community should come together, and it should bring more awareness to this day. I mean this day means everything to us as firefighters, said LPD firefighter, Zack Domantay.
The LaGrange community has been doing just that over the last few years, coming together to honor those 343 firefighters who died in the 9/11 terrorist attack 22 years ago.
“To us being firefighters that’s something that we think is an honor for us to honor them,” LaGrange Fire Chief Willie Bradfield said. According to Bradfield, the fire department leads the way as firefighters, some decked out in all their gear, and every day people, who donated $25, climb up and down 110 steps at Callaway Stadium in Lagrange.
