San Francisco Fire Department September 11th Remembrance Ceremony
The Bay Area has always been deeply affected by the terrorist attacks of 9/11 which took place 21 years ago. Not only was United 93 bound for San Francisco, but many of those who perished on the day were from the Bay Area. Likewise, a strong connection to the tragedy is shared by the San Francisco Fire Department. Each year on September 11th, every fire station in the city holds a solemn remembrance ceremony with fire trucks flanking the driveways, all personnel standing at attention and flags lowered to half staff. At 6:59 a.m, the exact time the South Tower collapsed, three sets of bells will ring, signifying the “Last Alarm” for the fallen, followed by the reading of the names of the 351 firefighters and emergency responders who lost their lives that day.
Sunday, September 11, 6:45 – 7:15 a.m., Each of San Francisco’s 45 fire stations, S.F., Public invited to observe quietly. @sffdpio
