The September 11 attacks were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda against the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001.

These attacks impacted every American, and will never be forgotten, so on September 11, 2010 a memorial was founded in Palm Beach Gardens by Palm Beach County Fire Rescue.

The memorial is open to the general public and is located at Fire Station 3 at 5089 Northlake Blvd #5075 in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
