Two days before the 5th anniversary of 9/11, Broome County honors it's responders who helped at ground zero.

The Broome County Firefighters Association held this 9/11 memorial service at the Port Crane Fire Station.

It recognized more than 100 County fire fighters, police officers, and EMS workers who traveled to ground zero in the days after the attack.

Raymond Serowick led a crew of ambulances and 54 EMS workers.

"It was absolutely unbelievable. Standing in front of ground zero, 10 days after the attack. You could not get your arms around that. It was like looking at a hollywood movie set," Serowick said.

The service included speeches by Jerry Marinich, Chairman of the County's 9/11 memorial committee, and Assistant Attorney General Dennis McCabe.
