CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
On Saturday morning 343 firefighters, 60 police officers and 10 EMS workers climbed the steps of the Duke Energy Center in memory of each of the first responders killed on 9/11. The first responders each carried a photograph of a person who was their age when they were killed in the attacks. A fire chief said honoring those killed is not just a one-day event. "A lot of them carry the plaques with them all the time," said Chief Jon Hannan with the Charlotte Fire Department. "The firefighters carry it in their turnout gear the whole year through." The proceeds of the event benefit the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The event was open to the public this year and 500 people participated.
