Lexington Police Officers and Firefighters are remembering the first responders who were killed on September 11th, 2001.

The Fire Department's Honor Guard placed a wreath and presented colors Wednesday at the Monument of the Fallen in Phoenix Park.

The memorial drew dozens of servicemen and servicewomen.

Assistant Fire Chief Harold Hoskins spoke with us about the anniversary.

He says the day is a sombering reminder for public servants.

"Things can go terribly wrong in a very short period of time. You walk out of your house for the last time, you've said goodbye to your family for the last time so this is a big day for us that those things can and will happen," says Hoskins.
