We have been notified by the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce that the Mayor and Township Committee have passed a resolution concerning the 10th Anniversary of the terrorist attacks which occurred on September 11, 2001.
The Committee is encouraging the observation of a moment of remembrance to last for one minute beginning at 1:00pm EST and to whatever extent practical ceasing all work or other activity and marking the moment in an appropriate manner, including the ringing of bells, blowing whistles or sounding sirens. All officers in police vehicles who are not handling calls will sound their vehicle’s siren for about 60 seconds when advised by police dispatch that it is the appropriate time.
This notice is being put out so that all community members are aware of what is occurring and not be concerned that something else of a serious nature is happening. In addition, other towns may be participating in similiar observations. Do not hesitate to contact your local municipality for further information.
