Tribute to 9/11

Sunday marked the fourth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Firefighters in Tallahassee honored those who lost their lives that fateful day.

On September 11, 2001, citizens lived through a terrorist attack that has forever changed American lives. Four years later local firefighters are honoring those who paid the ultimate price.

Michael Terhune, a member of Fire and Iron, a national motorcycle club, said, "343 firefighters lost their lives that day, so as brothers of those we just wanted to remember what was going on."

These men are part of a national motorcycle club "Fire and Iron" made up of firefighters and EMTs. When they're not busy saving lives they enjoy riding motorcycles. There was a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., marking the exact time the first plane struck the World Trade Center.

After paying their respects, the men of “Fire and Iron" presented the fire station with a flag that read "never forget."

LT Kermit Washington with the Tallahassee Fire Department added, "We want to present this every year so people wouldn't forget here in Tallahassee."

The firefighters say they know they face dangers everyday with their job, and that's why it's so important to pay respect to the victims of September 11th.
