Local dignitaries and members of the Cobb County Fire and Emergency Services Department gathered recently to pay homage to the anniversary of Sept. 11 and unveil a section of steel from one of the Twin Towers. The World Trade Center beam was given to Cobb County by the Port Authority of New York in honor of the 343 fire fighters, 60 police officers and all 2,977 people who died during the attacks.

This monument is now on display at the Cobb Safety Village, located at 1220 Al Bishop Drive in Marietta.
