PHOTOS: Members from East Jefferson’s police, fire, and EMS ranks gathered on Saturday to hold a moment of silence for the 20-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center. At exactly 8:46 a.m., the personnel held a moment of silence to honor service members who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect and rescue victims of the terrorist attacks. “It feels more significant this year for a variety of reasons,” said East Jefferson Fire Rescue Chief Bret Black. The group of service personnel stood shoulder to shoulder for a moment in pure silence to remember the fallen. “It’s an honor to have a short remembrance for the sacrifices they made,” Port Townsend’s Police Chief Thomas Olson said. “Seeing the community come out ... it has an added level of importance.”
