MADISON (WKOW) -- Remembrance ceremonies in the Madison area aim to never forget the moment of the attacks on September 11, 2001.
The Middleton Fire District held a tribute ceremony Wednesday morning. At 7 a.m., firefighters stood at attention while names were read of the 343 fire service responders who died in the attacks on the World Trade Center. The firehouse bell rang out as a symbol of their memory.
In Madison, police gathered for their own memorial. The Madison Police Honor Guard put the flags on display as 'Taps' and 'Amazing Grace' played at the East District memorial garden. One Honor Guard officer gave a speech to remember and honor the nearly 3,000 people killed, including more than 400 emergency workers.
"We pay our respects today to the lives lost, to their families, and to all the military personnel who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms," says Officer Jodi Nelson.
