September 11, 2019

At 0830 hrs on September 11, 2019, the Union Bridge Fire Company Color Guard posted the National, State and County flags for the Annual Carroll County 9/11 Rememberance Ceremony. The Color Guard has provided this service for the event for the past 10 years. The ceremony lasted about 40 minutes.

The following story was posted on the CCVESA website:

Carroll County Remembers the Sacrifices made on September 11, 2001

Members of the community along with elected officials gathered this morning around the 9/11 memorial at the Carroll County Public Safety Training Center to offer a moment of silence for those lives lost as a result of the horrific events that occurred on September 11, 2001. The Carroll County Public Safety Training Center, with the help of numerous agencies, constructed a 9/11 Memorial with the focus being a beam recovered from the wreckage. As we gathered around the memorial, Master of Ceremonies Doug Brown, opened the ceremony with a reminder that this year marks the 18th anniversary meaning that we now have students graduating from high school who were not yet born and never experienced the events that unfolded throughout that tragic day. That theme continued throughout the ceremony, as we were reminded that we can no longer say “Never Forget,” we have to also remember to discuss the details of that tragic day as a new generation is upon us. At 8:46 am the program was interrupted to offer a moment of silence to remember and reflect on the events that unfolded on September 11, 2001.

CCVESA President Donald Fair recalls what was going through his mind that day as fellow firefighters rushed to help those in need and the numerous lives lost. Commissioner Ed Rothstein remembered what that day meant to those who were serving in the military and how so many things changed as a result of the events that unfolded throughout the day. Commissioner Steve Wantz walked us through the timeline of events that occurred from the time the first plane hit at 8:46 am, including some of the phone conversations that were documented by loved ones just before their planes struck the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. We were reminded that those in public safety not only lost their lives that day, but continue to lose their lives due to medical complications from their life saving efforts on 9/11 and the days following. The 9/11 Memorial is open to the public during daylight hours for those who want to pay tribute or just reflect on how one day changed the way we live today.
