This Sunday, Sept. 11, the Leadership Brentwood Class of 2016 is hosting a dedication ceremony to recognize firefighters, police officers and members of the U.S. military.

The dedication will take place at the Public Safety Honor Garden in front of the Brentwood City Hall at 2 p.m. on Sunday.

The day marks 15 years since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. On that day, in addition to the airline passengers and crew, the employees in the targeted buildings, and the bystanders who lost their lives, many of the first responders on the scenes were killed as well, and other rescuers who survived still face health problems. Since then, honoring first responders on Sept. 11 has become a national tradition.

The City of Brentwood and the Leadership Brentwood Class of 2016 are officially dedicating the “Public Safety Reflecting Garden” on Sunday, consisting of three statues representing law enforcement, firefighters and the U.S. military. The garden will be dedicated to all those who have served Brentwood residents in these fields. In addition, four sitting benches have been added outside of City Hall.

Brentwood City Hall is located at 5211 Maryland Way.
