On Friday at the New Haven Fire Department, firefighters honored their fallen brothers and sisters on 9/11 by kneeling in front of empty turnout gear in front of the firehouse, symbolizing the losses on 9/11. The gear is arranged into the number 343 which is the number of New York City firefighters who died on 9/11. Almost 3,000 people died that day and, according to a spokesperson, the fire department realizes the best thing it can do to honor them is to train hard, prepare and defend.
