Fifteen years after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, people gathered on Sunday to remember the nearly 3,000 lives lost that day. 

In East Hampton Village, the East Hampton Town Chiefs Association hosted a ceremony on the Hook Mill green. Firefighters, emergency medical service personnel, and police placed wreaths in remembrance of the victims, including the 343 firefighters who died. 

Earlier in the afternoon, East Hampton clergy held a prayer service at the East Hampton Presbyterian Church.

Bruce Schiavoni, the president of the East Hampton Town Chiefs Association and the first assistant chief of the Sag Harbor Fire Department, addressed the crowd.
