LANSING — Today, the Michigan House of Representatives held their annual Sept. 11 ceremony to commemorate Michigan first responders lost in the line of duty during the past year, honor those lost in the 2001 attacks, and to recognize first responders serving in Michigan communities today. State Rep. Darrin Camilleri (D-Brownstown), who hosted Trenton Police Lieutenant Rick Tanguay during the ceremony, issued the following statement:

“On a day when we remember the service and sacrifice of first responders who answered the call to action 18 years ago, I was proud to be joined in Lansing by a local hero who has dedicated his life to protecting our community. Lieutenant Rick Tanguay has tirelessly served the city of Trenton for over 25 years, and I believe the commitment shown by Lt. Tanguay and all the men and women who risk their lives for us each day will inspire others to dedicate themselves to improving our state for generations to come.”
