Petal officials honor first responders

PETAL, MS (WDAM) - In Petal, officials took time out to recognized first responders.

In honor of the anniversary of September 11th Petal's Mayor Hal Marx and Senator Tom King honored Petal policemen and firefighters.

Mayor Marx said they are acknowledging their own because, during 9/11 ten years ago, it was the first responders in New York who sacrificed their lives, saved other lives and did what they were trained to do to protect those during the terror attacks.

"Its important to remember that our police and fire department personnel share a brother hood with police and firemen who gave their lives on 9/11 in New York City," said Marx.
