The Salute to Heroes event took place at the Prescott Valley Event Center on Saturday and featured various way to remember and learn about those who are and have protected the country on a daily basis.
One-hundred and ten stories is what firefighters had to climb at the World Trade Center during the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001. Over fifteen years later, their memory is kept alive all over the country by taking those same steps as individuals wore the badges of fallen personnel as they made laps through the stairs at the Prescott Valley Event Center to match the those climbed on September 11th.
Meanwhile outside, individuals got up close looks at Military vehicles, such as a Blackhawk helicopter, as well as observing how police, fire and medical personnel conduct business on a daily basis such as rescuing individuals and suspending down from the air.
Finally, the Salute to Service event also aided local personnel and veteran foundations in the community by hosting a monster truck show where all the proceeds went to the various organizations.
