Louisa Emergency Responders Honor 9/11 with Memorial Dedication
9/11 Memorial at the Louisa County Office Building
Louisa County emergency responders marked the tragic events of 9/11 with a special dedication Wednesday morning at the Louisa County Office Building.
A beam from the World Trade Center is now part of a new memorial that honors the victims and first responders after the collapse of the two towers 12 years ago.
"It really means a lot that we are able to honor the people that sacrificed that day and to let our first responders know every day when they come to work, they can see that and the community can see that and see what kind of sacrifice our people are willing to make," said Robert Dube, Louisa County administrator.
During the ceremony, first responders rang a fire bell to honor rescue workers who lost their lives in the terrorist attack.
