As we draw closer to September 11th, the Omaha Fire Department has received a lift to help mark the solemn occasion.
The Woodmen of the World Insurance Group presented the department with U.S. flags to fly on their equipment. There were 48 flags to help commemorate the day.
Omaha Fire Chief Bernard Kanger said, "Wwe are grateful for your support and we are proud to show our love for this country. This pride is demonstrated over 40,000 times each year as our fire trucks respond for help from members of the community."
Since 1947 the company has donated more than 2 million flags to community groups around the nation.
