Lanoka Harbor Station 61 Commemorates 9/11 With A Piece Of The World Trade Center

PHOTOS: The Lanoka Harbor Station 61 Fire Station in Lacey Township yesterday commemorated the 9/11 attacks with a piece of the World Trade Center. Ron Hill, a Lieutenant with Lakewood Fire Department joined by Lakewood’s EMS Supervisor Scott Carter, tells TLS the Fire Company received a piece of steel from the Twin Towers, after a lengthy application process.

The piece of steel – pictured suspended from the miniature Twin Towers – is a piece of History which is given out to Fire Departments Nationwide under stringent conditions, Hill says.

The miniature Twin Towers, made of stone, was donated to the Department, and emulates the waterfall at the Ground Zero memorial.

Hill and others from Lakewood joined in the commemoration in Lakewood as well.

  1. isn’t this a website dealing with news from lakewood why do we have to know about something not pertaining to lakewood. these guys don’t even live in lakewood. if they want to make the news let them bring this stuff to lakewood.

  2. yb time to work on the legs.
    #2 First off when you become a firefighter you enter into a family. Hence the brotherhood. Unless you are a emergency responder you will never understand their bond. These are Lakewood fire fighters who like any good family would do went to visit and give homage and support at the house of their family members. Thats why their story is Scoopable. Lastly even if these firefighters were not residents of this town “But look closely thats Meir Cohen and Yahuda beer in uniform” They serve for Lakewood and are the very faces that will risk their lives for a disgruntle stranger as yourself to rescue your mother,brother, child, or even your sorry self. Just because thats what they are called to do. So the next time you read a story on TLS rest assured that there is a good reason the story is appearing on this site.

  3. to # 2 and # 3. It may have nothing to due with Lakewood but it is important to know that all of these people provide service to you and everyone else in lakewood. I read that This is one of the few peices of steel from the WTC to be received in Ocean County. Did you know that two of these people were actually in New York on that afternoon working as part of the task force of rescue and recovery.
    The day is to pay respoect of the friends and co-workers. Lakewood being represented may be important to others who may have lost their freinds or family. Not everything has to be about you but offering a presence may mean alot to others.
    I commend these guys for doing what they do on an everyday basis and for giving up a day and just making a presence so others can be consoled.
    you guys are a true Mench

  4. just for your knowledge #2..Lt Hill did at one time live in Lakewood, and still Volunteers as a LT in the Lakewood Fire Dept., he is also known as LEMS 511 and is seen many times on this site. Fire fighter Prodoel, Beer, and Cohen also serve for the Lakewood Fire Co. Scott Carter is the Supervisor for Lakewood EMS. Like others have said, these BRAVE men serve our town and does it matter what town they live in…You should be thankful they are here to help us in our time of need.. You should be proud that they dedicated there time to show other towns that Lakewood does care about “family values” and represented our town in an honorable way….
