September 11, 2022- Martin, Tennessee. Firefighters from Martin Fire/Rescue/EMS walked from 1440 Fitness to Martin’s Station 1, 2.5 miles away in full turnout gear in memorial to the events of 9/11 and all those lost. An American flag attached to a pike pole was carried in turns by the walkers. The walk was planned by Assistant Chief David Blake, who hoped this might go on to become a yearly event. Hopeful it might grow to include neighboring departments.
