Motorists Disregard Sirens and Horns During Shreveport Fire Station’s 9-11 Observation

While on my way to the 9-11 remembrance ceremony this morning in Bossier City, I stopped by Shreveport Fire Station #9 on St. Vincent Ave.  

All 22 of Shreveport’s Fire Stations, by order of Fire Chief Craig Mulford, paid tribute in the same way at the same time to the 343 New York City firefighters, 23 New York City police officers, and the more than 2800 innocent people who lost their lives on or because of 9-11.

Each station rolled out all of its equipment and then, at 8:59 a.m. and 9:28 a.m., each station’s apparatus sounded its sirens for 30 seconds, followed by three air-horn blasts to signify the collapse of each tower.

It was a very moving tribute and I stopped by Station-9 to watch, since it was on my way from my home to Bossier City.

What struck me — or, perhaps I should say, appalled me — while watching and filming was the number of vehicles that rolled right past Station-9 while the sirens were screaming and the air-horns were blasting without ever slowing down.

Check out the below one-minute video clip and you’ll see what I mean. Does it bother you as much as it did me?
