JACKSON, Wyo. — Jackson Hole Fire/EMS hosted a 9/11 memorial ceremony on Monday, Sept. 11 on the Town Square, marking 22 years since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the U.S.

The ceremony began at 8 a.m. and included remarks by Fire/EMS Chief Stephen Jellie, a presentation by the honor guard, the raising of the flag at half-mast and a four fives bell ceremony.

This evening from 4 to 7 p.m., the public is invited to join first responders at the base of Snow King for a Hill Climb to honor the first responders who died on 9/11. Badges along with a photo and the name of a first responder will be handed out.

“The public is encouraged to carry that badge as they hike the 2,200 steps to the top of Snow King Mountain to symbolize the heroic, 110 flight of stairs that first responders selflessly climbed on September 11,” Fire/EMS’ press release said. “The Snow King Hill
Climb is not a timed race, but rather, an opportunity to honor those who gave their life so that others may live.”
