Tinton Falls Fire Company No. 1
September 11, 2011
Tinton Falls Fire Company No 1 invited everyone to join them in a Memorial Service on the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks when so many lost their lives. They also dedicated the refurbished 9/11 Memorial at the firehouse. Guests included Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande, Previous Highlands Mayor Anna C. Little, Tinton Falls Mayor Michael Skudera, Council President Gary Baldwin, Deputy Council President Andy Mayer, Council members Nancyanne Fama and Scott Larkin, Borough Administrator Gerry Turning, Police Chief John Scrivanic and many Tinton Falls residents and firefighters. Invocation was by Northside Engine Company firefighter Butch Neis. Master of ceremonies firefighter Brendan Tobin spoke of the tragic events, the innocent victims, their families and the heroism of those who responded, especially the firefighters and police officers. Assemblywoman Casagrande and Mayor Little also reflected on the events of September 11 and those affected by it. Firefighter Tobin credited the many businesses, professionals, individuals and firefighters who contributed to the building of the new 9/11 Memorial at the firehouse, built from steel beams retrieved from the World Trade Center. He also spoke of the amazing Memorial which it replaced, the dedication and skill exhibited by firefighter Jared Stevens who built the World Trade Center replica single handedly and accurately. The new memorial is surrounded by ten granite plaques. Nine are dedicated to those who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks and the tenth honors Jared Stevens and the work he did on our original Memorial.
