Firefighters, representatives from Camas and Washougal and area residents gathered in remembrance of Sept. 11, in downtown Camas.

Camas-Washougal Firefighter/Paramedic Shayne Bradley and Capt. Greg Weisser prepare for their roles on the flag detail Thursday morning, prior to a remembrance ceremony in front of the Camas Public Library. Camas High School junior Isaac Hodapp performed “Taps” on a bugle, as the flag was raised to half-staff. C-W Fire Chief Nick Swinhart said the local firefighters came together to honor the sacrifices of the 343 who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and “the memories of all who perished that day. They will never be forgotten.”
