The New York/New Jersey Port Authority and the Families of the 9/11Organization awarded Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue two steel beams, recovered from the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, to be used in a national memorial program. The beams traveled from coast to coast to arrive in Silverdale, WA on August 22, 2010 to an emotionally charged crowd of thousands.

Acquiring the steel artifacts to create the memorial was only the beginning of the Kitsap 911 Memorial project. A ground breaking ceremony, held at Evergreen Rotary Park in Bremerton, WA on 9/11/11, was the result of fundraising efforts, community support and many hours of planning. Now, as work continues, your assistance is sought to support the completion of this project. Individuals or community groups can help by:

No government funds or grants are available for this endeavor so all labor, material, and donations will come from community support. The Kitsap 911 Memorial Committee and its volunteers would welcome your help! For additional information contact Margie Torbron, Marketing and Sales Director, at
