KNCK – September 10, 2018

The Concordia Fire Department will hold their annual remembrance ceremony for the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that killed 2,977 people, including over 300 Firefighters.

Members of the department will gather at Harold M. Clark Stadium in Concordia at 10 am Tuesday, September 11th for a memorial stair climb, where they will walk the stadium steps 23 times while carrying the flag of the United States.

The attacks on the World Trade Center towers resulted in the largest concentrated emergency-service response in American history. Of those who lost their lives that day, 412 were emergency workers — 343 Firefighters, 60 Police Officers and 8 EMT/Paramedics. Many of the 343 Firefighters died while trying to climb 110 Stories of the World Trade Center Towers to rescue victims.
