Camas Fire Department engines blocked off Northeast Fourth Avenue, between Everett and Franklin streets during the remembrance event. During a speech, Camas Interim EMS Capt.

Their duty to place the suffering of others above that of their own. Nearly 3,000 people including military personnel and civilians men, women and children were also killed that day.
