Ringing bell on 9/11 to remember lives lost

Searcy Fire Chief Brian Dunavan (left) and Fire Department Chaplain Tom Martin at Central Fire Station ring a bell Saturday to remember first responders who lost their lives because of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Dunavan said the bell ceremony is a tradition that has been around more than 200 years and symbolizes the engine company leaving and coming back into quarters.
