Thomasville-  Before Monday's Red, White, and Blue Salute, Thomasville firefighters both past and present were honored for their jobs as first responders. 

A flag pole was dedicated in front of Fire Station One at 8:40 a.m. the same time the first plane struck the World Trade Center five years ago. The flag was then lowered to half staff to remember their brothers in New York. 

"Being a firefighter's a whole different life, you come into a whole new family, brothers and sisters and we lost 343 brothers five years ago and it touches you, you can't help but be angry," said Chief Bryan Croft, Thomasville Fire Dept. A plaque in front of the flag pole reads, "In honor and remembrance of the hero's and victims of September 11th."

Firefighters also added a fence and lava rock to the Thomasville Firefighters Memorial.
