The Boardman Safety Services Memorial was dedicated on the 18th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

The ceremony was held Wednesday morning in front of Boardman Fire Station #71.

The memorial honors first responders across the country who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

It's also a tribute for members of the Boardman police and fire department who have served the community.

This was a project of the Boardman Lions Club in affiliation with the Western Reserve Building & Trades Council, the Boardman Police Fraternal Lodge 43 and the Boardman Firefighters Local 1176.
