The California Area Chamber of Commerce will help provide a 9/11 commemoration this year.
David Wyatt, manager at the local Sonic, requested the chamber's support at its regular meeting June 14. A long-time firefighter, Wyatt said other communities where he has served have held some sort of event acknowledging the heroism of the emergency responders during the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
As a first-time event, Wyatt said he hopes to bring together rural and city fire departments, as well as the community, at California City Hall the morning of the anniversary to give tribute to the fallen firefighters and to recognize the personal sacrifices of area firefighters.
"For me, it's all about remembering the firefighters," Wyatt said.
