The memorial at the Canby Fire District 62 station to those who lost lives in New York, Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon during the 9/11 attacks was created through the efforts of now retired Division Chief Troy Buzalsky.

The firefighters paid a special tribute by unfurling a giant flag down the side of the fire station. Their gesture was an homage to the firefighters who draped a 20x38 foot garrison flag on the side of the damaged Pentagon the day after the attacks. Photographs of the firefighters and military standing on the roof of the flag-draped Pentagon were seen around the world.

Speakers included firefighter John Stanislaw, Division Chief Robb Milano and Mayor Brian Hodson.

The Oregon Patriot Guard motorcycle club served as a color guard.
