WATER VALLEY – The Water Valley fire department and police department are jointly hosting the city’s second annual 9/11 Memorial Walk on the 22nd anniversary of the terror attacks that changed the country and the world. Police Chief Jason Mangrum and Fire Chief
Mark McGavock invite members of the public and first responders across the area to join their departments at the bandstand in Railroad Park at 9 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 11. Participants in the Memorial Walk will go up Main Street to Central Street and then up North Court Street to Davidson Elementary School. The Memorial Walk then continues back down North Court to Main Street, and back to City Hall.
More than 400 first responders were killed that tragic morning in 2001 including fire fighters and police officers who rushed into crumbling buildings and raging fires to save others along with paramedics and EMTs who were taking care of the wounded.
“We have police officers and fire fighters in our departments who are too young to remember that fateful morning. It is important to honor these fallen heroes and to never forget the sacrifices they made,” Police Chief Jason Mangrum shared.
