Saline Fire Chief Craig Hoeft visited Lansing Tuesday to mark the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
State Rep. Mark Ouimet invited Hoeft to a special House session honoring first responders.
The ceremony also honored first responders and members of the military who gave their lives in the line of duty during 2011 and 2012.
"It was an nice ceremony. Sadly, the list of people who died in these last two years was surprisingly long," Hoeft said.
