Ormond Beach firefighters and community members paid tribute to the 2,977 victims who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks by walking the Granada Bridge on the 21st anniversary of the tragedy, on Sunday, Sept. 11.
This was the second time the city of Ormond Beach has hosted a memorial walk. Firefighters dressed in full gear crossed the bridge in the morning hours, as cars drove past and honked their horns in support. They were joined by officers with the Ormond Beach Police Departments, Ormond Strong, local elected officials and members of the public.
The memorial walk is meant to honor the deaths of first responders during the terrorist attacks. A total of 343 firefighters and paramedics, 23 New York City police officers and 37 Port Authority police officers died on Sept. 11, 2001.
