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.
