Several Demopolis firefighters gathered Tuesday morning to honor the lives lost during the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Participating were Battalion Chief Tommy Tate, Capt. James Bailey, Lt. Chris Foster, Lt. Michael Pope, Lt. Justin King, firefighter Aaron Allred, firefighter Marco Rembert and firefighter Jason Reid.

The program included a moment of silence in honor of those lost on 9/11.

The men rang the bell at Engine 3 two times representing the fall of each World Trade Center tower. They also had moments of silence for each attack and shared memories of what they were doing that fateful morning.
