Cheyenne Firefighters Honor Last Piece from World Trade Centers

Cheyenne Firefighters coordinated a section of procession for one of the last pieces from the World Trade Center Towers, Saturday. The five-foot long, 3,000 pound artifact from the 9/11 attacks traveled from New York City through Cheyenne, WY to where it will now remain at Fire Station 4 in Fort Collins, CO. Firefighters from Cheyenne Fire and Rescue, Laramie County Fire Department 1 and 2, FE Warren, Wyoming Air National Guard, and the Brigade of Holly Frontier joined on the overpass to salute the procession down I-80 onto I-25. "This is a chance to honor and never forget the Firefighters from 9/11 and this is an honor to be able to salute these Firefighters from New York," said Cheyenne Firefighter Derek Pollnow. The tragedy from September 11, 2001 killed more than 3,000 people, including 343 firefighters. "The community itself has chosen not to forget, we have chosen not to forget, and they're not forgetting us here in Cheyenne," said Pollnow. #shortgo h/t: S & J Signs, Cheyenne Firefighters, Laramie County Fire District 1
