North County Fire Division Chief Sid Morel congratulates Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce member Bob Hillery, his daughter Heather Hanlon (wife of U.S. Marine Corps Col. James Hanlon, presently deployed in Afghanistan), and granddaughter Kelly Hanlon, 10, who attends William Frazier Elementary School, on completing the Fallbrook Firefighters Second Annual 9/11 Memorial Hike.

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook firefighters Second Annual 9/11 Memorial Hike was held at the Fallbrook Land Conservancy’s Monserate Mountain on Sept. 8. Over 150 participants braved the hot weather and conquered the mountain.

Each participant carried a picture of one of the fallen firefighters who lost their lives during the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The goal of the annual event is to honor the U.S. military and support the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.

To register for next year’s event, go to or visit North County Fire’s administrative building in the 300 block of South Main Avenue. The annual event is held the Saturday before Sept. 11. Next year’s event will be held Sept. 7, 2013.
