Pelco Honors Fallen 9/11 Heroes

CLOVIS, Calif.

Hundreds of Pelco employees, guests and area residents gathered Friday at the company’s world headquarters to observe the eighth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The remembrance was held at Pelco’s California Memorial, a monument created to remember the victims and fallen heroes who lost their lives Sept. 11, 2001. The ceremony included a wreath procession with motor escort accompanied by a rendition of “Amazing Grace” played on bagpipes. There was also a 21-gun salute, an aerial fly over, folding and presentation of an American flag, and singing of the National Anthem.

“Pelco is proud to be able to partner with local law enforcement and emergency services personnel to recognize and commemorate those who sacrificed so much on this tragic day,” says Julie DeBenedetto. “This ceremony has become an opportunity for everyone to come together and recognize the many heroic sacrifices that were made on this day eight years ago.”

Guests in attendance included Chief Anthony Whitaker from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department, and Andy Isolano, former FDNY firefighter. Both are survivors of the attacks on the World Trade Center Twin Towers.

Other honored guests included the Combined Command Military Honor Guard and numerous first responders from the local area.
