Mesa County firefighters remember 9/11

GRAND JUNCTION– Today marks the 18th anniversary of 9/11.

Mesa county fire departments held a moment of silence at five different locations this morning during the time of the first attack against the united states.

This remembrance took place at the 27 Road overpass across I-70.

Grand Junction Fire Fighters hung an American flag for I-70 travelers to see on this day of reflection.

Vehicles in every direction honked their horns as a show of solidarity with our nation’s and local first responders.

After nearly 20 years, men and women in this line of work weren’t even alive during the attack are giving an added meaning to the day, as we move forward as a country.

This memorial took place between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m.

The North Tower of the World Trade Center was struck in 2001 at about 8:47 a.m.
