East Dover Fire Company Honored with WTC Steel

Acting Governor Kim Guadagno visited Toms River to honor the East Dover Fire Company with a piece of steel from the World Trade Center.

Remember the Heroes, East Dover Fire Company

In a statement Friday, state officials say the section of steel I-beam will honor the memory of the victims of September 11, 2001 attacks.

“The memorial being created by the Toms River East Dover Fire Company will forever remind us of what happened on 9/11 and ensure that future generations appreciate how fortunate we are to live in freedom,” said Guadagno.

Toms River lost two residents, Patricia M. Fagan and Robert C. Kennedy, in  the 9/11 attacks.

“On September 11th, two of our neighbors from Toms River never came home,” said Port Authority Deputy Director Bill Baroni.  “It is a sacred mission for the Port Authority to ensure what happened that day is never forgotten. We thank Toms River for partnering with us to create a poignant reminder.”

The Fire Company plans to display the steel on their grounds as a memorial to fallen emergency responders and all others who died in the attacks of 9/11.
