Santa Monica Fire Stations To Hold 9/11 Remembrance Ceremonies On Thursday:

In recognition of those who perished in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, the Santa Monica Fire Department will conduct its annual brief and solemn remembrance ceremony consistent with the International Association of Fire Chiefs recommended protocols.

All four community Fire Stations will participate.

The 9/11 terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Arlington, Va. and in Shanksville, PA resulted in the deaths of 2,977 people.

Those killed included 343 Firefighters, 60 Police Officers and 8 private EMT/Paramedics totaling 411 emergency personnel.

The SMFD said public, city employees, and in particular neighbors of the fire stations, who are interested in participating are invited to gather at any one of the fire stations listed below. The observance ceremony will begin promptly at 6:45 am and should last no longer than 20 minutes.

— Station 1: 1444 7th Street

— Station 2: 222 Hollister Avenue

— Station 3/4: 1302 19th Street

— Station 5: 2450 Ashland Avenue

An artifact from the Ground Zero site resides on the second floor of the Public Safety Facility at 333 Olympic Drive, Santa Monica just outside the Santa Monica Fire Department’s administration office. It is open for viewing by the public during normal business hours.
