CAMDEN — On the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack, American flags were flown at half-staff throughout Camden's downtown in memory of the nearly 3,000 victims.

The Camden Fire and Rescue Department laid out protective gear and flowers to commemorate the 412 fire fighters, police officers, emergency medical technicians and paramedics who lost their lives while saving others that day.
