United States Ambassador to Singapore David Adelman. -- ST PHOTO: CAROLINE CHIA By Kezia Toh United States Ambassador to Singapore David Adelman marked the 10th anniversary of the Sept 11 attacks with a visit on Saturday to Singapore's oldest fire station, the Central Fire Station at Hill Street. The US Embassy hosted 20 disadvantaged children under charitable organisation Beyond Social Services, to highlight the important role played by firefighters in the aftermath of the attacks. Mr Adelman said: 'Tomorrow is a day of remembering those who were lost. Here at this important fire station, we are proud but sad to remember those 411 first responders who rushed into the building after the attacks - with the greatest courage imaginable.' The visit is part of a series of activities this weekend to mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
