This past September 11th, HAIX got the honor to participate in Southport Fire Department’s remembrance ceremony that honored the 343 firefighters that were lost on 9/11, twenty years before. The sacrifices of the first responders were commemorated by an impactful display and ceremony. 343 pairs of HAIX boots were on display in orderly lines in front of the firehouse, each with its own small U.S. flag. The department also honored the memory of the 23 officers with NYPD and 37 officers of the Port Authority PD that were lost that day. Sixty Thin Blue Line flags were placed in the grassy area between the Fire Department and the Police Department. The eight Emergency Medical Technicians that were lost were also represented with eight Stars of Life on display.
