FDL Fire Chief Speaks At Michigan 9-11 Ceremony

12-Sep-2014

Fond du Lac Fire Chief Peter O’Leary was asked to speak at a memorial ceremony in Traverse City, Michigan for the 13th anniversary of 9-11. He says he became friends with the Grand Traverse Metro Fire Chief during the National Fire Academy and was asked to speak during a ceremony. He says they have a piece of one of the Towers that keeps memories of the tragic terrorist attacks alive for those who see it. O’Leary was a battalion chief in Wheaton, Illinois and they were supposed to have a staff meeting on the day of the attacks, but like everyone else they were overcome by unfolding coverage of the tragedy. O’Leary says although it’s been 13 years now, it’s still important for the sake of the families who lost loved ones and the rescue workers still dealing with health concerns from working at ground zero that we hold events to remember 9-11.
