Representatives of the Police and Fire departments laid a wreath at Fort Worth’s monument to those lost in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

The Fort Worth Police Department laid a wreath at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History’s 9-11 Memorial this year. The wreath was placed in memory of all first responders who lost their lives on Sept 11, 2001.

At the center of the museum’s 9-11 tribute exhibit is N-101, a full-façade panel that supported three floors (101-103) two stories above the center of the impact zone of the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City.

The beam includes three steel columns, bolted together, three stories tall and is the largest World Trade Center artifact in Texas. It is one of the few recovered pieces traced to an exact location in the tower. The artifact weighs about 8,000 pounds and measures 36 feet high by 6 feet wide by 3 feet thick.

Earlier in the day, police officers and firefighters assisted the Junior ROTC of Morningside Middle School as members raised and lowered the U.S. flag in remembrance of the lives lost in the 9-11 attacks.

Fort Worth first responders also participated in opening ceremonies at the Texas Rangers baseball game, presenting an American flag that covered the entire infield.
