A large American flag flapped in the breeze as it hung some 50 feet in the air above the El Dorado Hills Town Center courtyard, a presentation set up by El Dorado Hills Fire Department staff to honor 9/11 victims on the attack’s 12th anniversary.

Every year since the terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C., as well as the Pennsylvania plane crash, that killed 2,977 people the department has done something to commemorate the event and honor its heroes; 343 of the victims were firefighter/paramedics and 60 were law enforcement officers.

Last Wednesday’s event, paired with an El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce mixer hosted by Tony Mansour and Kevin Nagle, also included a performance by the El Dorado Hills Firefighter Pipe and Drum band and live music.
