Text on the memorial:
WE REMEMBER

This memorial is dedicated to the 343 fire fighters, to the 60 police officers, and to the 8 EMTs and paramedics who gave their lives while rendering aid to their fellowman immediately following the unprecedented act of terrorism against our country on September 11, 2001.

The piece of steel mounted atop this memorial was recovered from the rubble of the World Trade Center in New York City, and serves as a reminder of the events of that fateful day.

Although 2,342 civilians lost their lives, the dedication to duty and heroic actions of these first responders saved thousands of lives that day. Their courage and compassion during a time of national distress will forever define their character and loyalty.

WE SHALL NEVER FORGET
