MONROVIA, AL (WAFF) -

A memorial for the victims of the April 27, 2011 tornado outbreak was held by Monrovia firefighters nearly three years to the day.

The event included a blood drive and fire department open house to remember the lives lost that day, and to thank the community for their support in the aftermath of the storms.

"This event, also, is a way to remind people that we do have to be aware," said junior firefighter Erin Rountree. "We need to take responsibility and take precautions, because we can only do so much to combat Mother Nature, but we want to be as prepared as possible."
