The Keizer Fire District held a ceremony to mark 22 years since the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 that destroyed the World Trade Center, damaged the Pentagon and the plane brought down in Shanksville, Penn. by passengers after wrestling control from hijackers.
Three hundred-forty three American flags were placed outside the Keizer Fire station on Chemawa Rd. NE, one of each firefighter who lost their lives due to the collapse of the World Trade Center’s twin towers.
Mayor Cathy Clark and fire district board member Colleen Busch placed a wreath at the district’s Sept. 11 memorial. Chief Ryan Russell called for a moment of silence from the assembled firefighters and others.
