Twelve years ago, on September 11, 2001, the United States was attacked when terrorists crashed
planes into the World Trade Center in New York City and into the Pentagon in Washington DC. We'll
never forget the terrible tragedy-but America will stand together.
The Santa Barbara County Fire Department will be holding special remembrance ceremonies for the 12th
anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy. The special events will honor the first responders and the over 3000
civilian lives lost that day, along with our military members who have perished fighting the terrorism
behind the attacks.
REMEMBERING THOSE WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES TO SAVE OTHERS
