Friday marks 19 years since the September 11 terror attacks, and some rescue teams in Lake Charles decided to honor the anniversary after working on Thursday.

A photo shows several members of SFM deputies and other area first responder teams raking storm debris from Laura out of the city's 9/11 memorial, which features a small pond and two beams from the World Trade Center.

The caption says the crews had just finished a long day of assessments after Hurricane Laura.

The photo features responders with the Lake Charles Fire Department, Louisiana Urban Search & Rescue Task Force 9, Kenner Fire Department, Tangipahoa Parish Rural Fire Protection District 2, St. Bernard Fire Department, and St. John Parish Fire Department.
