MTM On The Road: Remembering The Lives Lost on 9/11 at The Grand Traverse Metro Fire Department

Today is a date in our country’s history that Americans will never forget.

It marks 18 years since the terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people and injured thousands more.

Everywhere across Northern Michigan people will remember the events that took place on Sept. 11, 2001.

Starting at 8:30 a.m. The Grand Traverse Metro Fire Department in Traverse City will have a memorial ceremony to honor the lives lost. They also have a piece of steel from the North Tower of the World Trade Center for people to pay their respects to.

The 9/11 artifact was retrieved from New York City in 2011 and is placed behind the Grand Traverse Metro Fire Department admin office.

The memorial will have the Metro Honor Guard and Boy Scouts to lower the flag, bell ceremony, and bagpipe music. This year’s guest speaker is the new Traverse City Coast Guard Commander Chuck Web.

Everyone is encouraged to come and take part in the memorial ceremony.

Join Regan Blissett and Stephanie Adkins as they reflect on the tragic events that happened 18 years ago and preview the ceremony.
