DeKalb Public Safety Commemorates 10 year anniversary of 9/11 attacks

DeKalb Public Safety Commemorates 10 year anniversary of 9/11 attacks

DECATUR – DeKalb County Chief Executive Officer Burrell Ellis, the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners and the DeKalb County Police and Fire Rescue departments will conduct a memorial on the 10-year anniversary of the 9-11 attacks this Sunday, Sept. 11 at 8 a.m. at the DeKalb Public Safety Headquarters, 1950 West Exchange Place in Tucker.

Earlier this summer, a group of DeKalb County firefighters secured a piece of the World Trade Center and drove to New York on their time off to retrieve it.  Since then, volunteer artists have been working diligently to incorporate the piece into a larger memorial sculpture dedicated to those who lost their lives in the 9-11 attacks.

DOWNTOWN: Georgia commemorates Sept. 11 attacks

ATLANTA (AP) - Gov. Nathan Deal held a moment of silence for victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, which took place 10 years ago this Sunday.

IN DEPTH: How 9/11 Changed America

Deal led a brief memorial ceremony at the state Capitol Friday, flanked by Georgia's Chief Justice Carol Hunstein and Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle.

Deal also paid tribute to members of the military that have served in the wars that have taken place since the attacks on New York and Washington.

Deal did not speak to reporters. Spokesman Brian Robinson said the state is taking increased security precautions due to the anniversary, but he said there has been no mention of Georgia as a potential target.

Flags will be flown at half staff at all Georgia government buildings through sunset on Sunday.
