On Monday September 11th, members of the Cutchogue Fire Department attended the annual Southold Town September 11th rememberance ceremony.

The ceremony which is organized by the Southold Town Fire Cheifs Council is held each year the Southold Town 9-11 and Fallen Firefighters memorial located in Cochran Park in Peconic.

Representatives from Fire Departments throughout the township, and community members participated in the ceremony led by CFD Chaplin Thomas Roslak.

In honor of those who were lost, a memorial wreath was placed at the memorial by the officers of the Fire Chiefs Council.

Following the ceremony particpants were encouraged to place a flag at the memorial and privatley reflect upon the effects of that day.

The Firefighters Memorial was officially dedicated in 2012 came to fruition following the addition of the "Morning Call" sculpture to the Cochran Park on Peconic in 2011, which is a memorial to the victims of September 11th.

Following the placement of the Osprey, the idea arose to encompass the statue with the Firefighters Memorial and create a "Heroes Plaza" memorializing Southold Town's Fallen Firefighters as well as the victims of September 11th that included FDNY firefighters, emergency workers and innocent civilians.

We encourage the community to take the time to visit the memorial.
