Summit Tolls Bell of Remembrance for 9/11 (Video)
A former deputy fire chief Rich Degroot sounded the Memorial Bell to acknowledge those lost during Sept. 11, 2001.
It was a gathering that saw Summit officials lined up outside the Summit Firehouse along with police and fire fighters.
A solemn ceremony that was punctuated by the sounding of the Memorial Bell, which is dedicated to all of Summit's fallen firemen. While none of the firefighters from Summit perished in the terrorist attacks of 9/11, it was evident the pain was still there as Summit Fire Chief Joseph Houck, behind dark sunglasses and several other firefighters, appeared to be fighting back tears as they presented a small host of speakers which included Summit Mayor Ellen Dickson and Councilman Patrick Hurley.
