Jackson Hole Fire EMS

Jackson Hole emergency responders will hold a 9/11 memorial ceremony on Town Square at 8 a.m. Saturday to remember the 412 emergency workers who died in the attacks 20 years ago.

They will then hike from Josie’s Ridge to Snow King to honor those first responders and support the community through Old Bill’s, according to a Jackson Hole Fire/EMS press release.

Because of the COVID-19 surge in Teton County, Fire/EMS encourages residents and visitors to do the same hike anytime throughout the day, but not necessarily with the emergency workers.

Fire/EMS Chief Brady Hansen said the 8 a.m. memorial will include raising the flag, short remarks and a bell ceremony to remember 9/11’s fallen firefighters.

“People are certainly welcome to come and attend,” Hansen said. “It’s our goal to continue to remember those who gave their lives on Sept. 11, and try to make sure we don’t forget them.”

As for the hike, safety has to be the priority, he said: “We want people to hike Snow King out of remembrance for the fallen firefighters, but not necessarily in a large group.”
