9/11 Silent Memorial Processing Recognizing 20th Anniversary

Category : General

MARATHON CITY, WI. September 1, 2021 – For the past 10 years, the Marathon City Fire Department has hosted a Silent Memorial Procession up Main Street in Marathon City remembering the 412 Firefighters, Police Officers and Emergency Medical Technicians along with 2,546 civilians who died on 9/11.  The route up Main Street from First Street to Eighth Street increases in elevation 110’ and symbolizes the number of stories in the World Trade Center Towers on the day of the attacks.  Multiple local departments have participated in this tribute over the past decade.

9/11 holds significant importance for all first responders and the 20th anniversary requires special recognition. To achieve that level of recognition, the Marathon City Fire Department has set a goal of having 412 Firefighters, Police Officers and Emergency Medical Technicians participating in this year’s procession.

The Marathon City Fire, EMS and Police Departments  invite the public to join our community in lining Main Street to show support for the Firefighters, Police Officers and Emergency Medical Technicians participating in the 9/11 Silent Memorial Process honoring the 412 first responders lost on that day
