Flags displayed at Menlo Park Fire Stations in remembrance of 9/11
In remembrance, the Menlo Park Fire Protection District is honoring the 343 fallen firefighters and all those who lost their lives on the anniversary of 9/11 today by displaying 343 individual American flags representing each FDNY member who perished at all seven Fire Stations in the District. The ones pictured here are at Station 4 on the Alameda
The Fire District is the sponsor of California Urban Search and Rescue Task Force 3 whose members were deployed to the World Trade Center and Pentagon immediately after the attacks on 9-11 to assist with the difficult human rescue and recovery phase of the operations.
Fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman included a video of the recovery work in a press release he sent out to media.
