Firehall Ceremony to Mark 22 Years Since September 11th tragedy

Acting Susanville City Fire Chief Tom Hernandez is inviting the public to join the department in a commemoration of the firefighters, paramedics, police officers and other innocent victims whose lives were ended by the tragic terrorist attack of September 11th, 2001.

The Susanville Fire Department is joining with remembrances being held all across the country on the morning of September 11th.

“This year marks 22 years since the tragic events of September 11, 2001, and we believe it is essential to come together as a community to remember and pay our respects,” said Hernandez.

“Our September 11th Remembrance Ceremony aims to bring our community together to reflect, remember, and show gratitude for the courage and resilience displayed by so many during and after the events of 9/11.”

Hernandez encourages all first responders and members of our local community to attend this ceremony, saying, “It is an opportunity for us to stand in unity, pay our respects, and remind ourselves of the strength and resilience that can emerge from tragedy.”

Just before 7:00a.m. the group will assemble in front of the fire hall’s flagpole, the Honor Guard will present the colors and there will be a moment of silence and a prayer. The ceremony will begin promptly at 7:05a.m.

Of the 2,977 people killed in the September 11th attacks, 412 were emergency workers in New York City who responded to the World Trade Center.

If you have questions please phone the Susanville Fire Department at 1.530.257.5152.
