Day meant to remember the 12 who died, as well as the 248 survivors and first responders impacted by the traumatic event.

This month marks the fourth anniversary of the attack at a Ventura County nightclub which left 12 people dead.

On Tuesday, Ventura County Supervisors passed a resolution insuring those impacted by the tragedy at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks will never be forgotten.

With the November 7th anniversary approaching, Ventura County Supervisor Linda Parks introduced the resolution calling for the day to be the Borderline Day of Remembrance.

"I wanted to make sure that each year we say their names, and that we recognize them," said Parks.

Michael Morisette’s 20-year-old daughter Kristina was one of those who died in the attack.

"It means a lot...we fear that they'll be forgotten. Every year, we'll have a reason to remember that the community came together, and so many people did so much," said Morisette.

The county will fly its flags at half staff on November 7th to honor those who died, as well as the 248 survivors, plus the first responders.
