A memorial service was held today to remember all the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The ceremony took place in the courtyard at the LVAC headquarters in Lancaster, NY. Several speakers gave tribute to the great loss of firefighters, EMS providers, police officers, and civilians.
A few of the LVAC members answered the call for help 10 years ago after the attacks in New York City. They traveled to ground zero and were on call to help out wherever needed. Larry Pohl, a 40 year volunteer of the LVAC was one of those who went to help. At the memorial today, Mr. Pohl accepted a plaque of appreciation from the New York Fire Department for LVAC’s role after 9/11.
The memorial was attended by LVAC members, local politicians, members of the Lancaster Fire Department and friends and family. Lancaster Town Supervisor Bob Giza spoke briefly to recognize the great losses from the attack.
