HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - Today the nation observes the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. Here in the Tennessee Valley, many will hold their own memorial services.
This morning, Huntsville firefighters, police and HEMSI personnel gathered to remember those who lost their life on September 11, 2001.
Crews gathered at 7:40 a.m. at each of the city's fire stations and public safety precincts for a moment of reflection.
Fire trucks then turned on lights and sirens for 30 seconds at 7:45 a.m. That's the time the first plane struck the World Trade Center in New York. They also lowered the American flag to half staff.
Police officers and HEMSI personnel will join firefighters for this service.
