December 2021. Murphy Fire Departments creates a 20 year anniversary float of September 11, 2001 as a tribute to FDNY, all who sacrificed, their families and our Nations Armed Forces. This float was constructed of simulated concrete, steel, dust, simulated smoke and a battered US Flag to mimic the World Trade Center attack & collapse. This float was in the Murphy and Hayesville Christmas Parade. The cheers, tears, and comments we received from many who observed this tribute will always be a reminder of the importance of our nations first responders, the military and their families who sacrifice daily.
