9/11 Remembrance

Red River Fire District posted a remembrance on September 11th, the 19th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on this country.  Of the 2,977 victims killed in the September 11 attacks, 412 were emergency workers in New York City who responded to the World Trade Center. This included: 343 firefighters (including a chaplain and two paramedics) of the New York City Fire Department (FDNY). 
We will never forget.
The Fire Department also went to a 2nd grade learned about the events that took place on 9/11/01. May we never forget.

On September 11th at 12:30 pm They installed 4 smoke detectors, taught Fire Safety and showed all the children at Country Day Montessori about firemen and the equipment we use. Pictured teaching is A Shift Lieutenant Firefighter Tommy Pickett.

Tech alum Matt Page, who is a volunteer with the Lincoln Parish and Alpine fire departments, completed the 9/11 Memorial Challenge at Louisiana Tech’s Prescott Memorial Library this morning. Page, who also is a CLECO employee, ran from the Mize Track and Field Complex to Prescott, where he then climbed the equivalent of 110 stories. The 9/11 Memorial Stair Climbs are not timed race events, but a way for firefighters and the community to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live.
