18th Anniversary of September 11, 2001
~ Hyannis Fire Station ~

Members of the Hyannis Fire Department were joined by the public and others
in front of the fire station to remember the 18th Anniversary of September 11, 2001.
The simple ceremony included The Pledge of Allegiance, reading of the Fireman's Prayer,
ringing of the 5-5-5-5 bell signal, and a gathering of those who were impacted in various
ways by the attacks on America and the loss of 343 Firefighters and so many others
on that day 18 years ago.

Additional ceremonies were held across the Cape at 0945 hours on September 11, 2019.
Several other photos are from COMM and a flag display in front of Barnstable High School.

The 1949 Mack Engine 5 of the Hyannis Fire Department served as the
bell signal for the ringing of 5-5-5-5 during the ceremony.

Hundreds of small American flags waved briskly in the wind in front of
the Barnstable High School in Hyannis.

The Firefighters Memorial in front of the Centerville Fire Station
was the site of one of many ceremonies held at fire stations
and public buildings on the morning of September 11th 2019.

The new Hyannis Fire Station is nearing completion and along with it will be
a Memorial Site recognizing lost firefighters and the impact of September 11, 2001.
Hyannis firefighters and others have been working on the memorial with donations
and the help of many to make the special memorial a reality.

In Centerville the ceremony was held at the same time as the Hyannis ceremony.

Among those who attended the Centerville ceremony was Bill, a retired FDNY firefighter
and former member of Rescue 4 in Queens for about 15 years, who now lives on the Cape and
joined fellow firefighters remembering many of his brothers lost on September 11th.


COMM recently added a pierce of the steel from the World Trade Center
to a representation of the twin towers in front of the station.

The COMM FD Memorial also remembers many of its own
members with names engraved on many bricks in the memorial
overlooked by a statue done by local artist David Lewis.
