Saturday marks the eighth anniversary of the Dec. 2, 2015, terrorist attack in San Bernardino. On that day, 14 people were taken from us, including 13 County Environmental Health and Public Health employees. Many more were wounded, physically and emotionally.

The County government family will always remember these 14 souls. The public is invited to join us in observing a moment of remembrance at 10:55 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2, on the County’s Facebook, X, and Instagram platforms.

Please watch this video to remember those who were taken from us. Flags at all County facilities will be flown at half-mast today, Friday, Dec. 1 until sunset on Monday, Dec. 4. The County invites those who fly an American flag at home or their place of work to also lower their flags during this time.

The public is also invited to visit the Curtain of Courage Memorial, which is located on the east side of the County Government Center at 385 N. Arrowhead Ave. in San Bernardino. This memorial serves to forever honor those who were taken from us, the survivors, and first responders from that tragic day.

Resources are available to help those experiencing trauma due to the events of Dec. 2, 2015.
