September 13, 2023

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

The ceremony which is organized by the Southold Town Fire Chiefs Council is held each year at 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.

In honor of those who were lost, a memorial wreath was placed at the memorial on behalf of the Fire Chiefs Council by the a contingent of retired FDNY firefighters who live locally.

Following the ceremony, participants were encouraged to place a flag at the memorial and privately reflect upon the effects of that day.

Bag pipes during the procession and ceremony were played by CFD ex-Chief James Fogarty Jr.

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.

Each year since the memorials dedication dedication, the Town Fire Departments have gathered as a group to reflect on the events of September 11th 2001.

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