This Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of the tragic events of September 11th, 2001. The selflessness of First Responders across the United States was exemplified a decade ago, when our Country endured horrific attacks in New York City, Washington, DC, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. I am proud to say that many of Pittsburgh’s Public Safety Officers were among those who put their lives on the line for others during the aftermath of that fateful day. They are the unsung heroes of our communities, and I am truly inspired by their commitment and spirit.
Please join me in thanking Pittsburgh’s First Responders for serving our City on that day and every day. You can show your appreciation by stopping by the City-County Building lobby on Friday, September 9th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and signing a postcard, or by sending your message of thanks to email@example.com by 5 p.m. on Friday. On behalf of the residents of Pittsburgh, I will hand-deliver these messages to Pittsburgh’s Bureaus of Fire, Police and EMS at a special ceremony on Sunday, September 11th.
I hope that you join me in this important effort, and let Pittsburgh’s First Responders know that their dedicated service to the City of Pittsburgh does not go unnoticed.
