On Friday, September 11, beginning at 6:45am, community members are invited to visit any of the six Ventura City Fire Stations for a special remembrance ceremony of the 2001 terrorist attacks. Join us in honoring the 2,977 people who lost their lives 14 years ago including Firefighters, Police Officers, Military Personnel and civilians. Let us remember their sacrifices and acts of heroism.
6:45 a.m. – Fire apparatus will roll out of the stations and be positioned on the station ramps.
6:55 a.m. – Firefighters will stand at attention and raise the U.S. flag to half-staff. Silence will be maintained.
6:59 a.m. – A special tone will be broadcast over the fire radio followed by four sets of five bells. The bells are traditionally used by the fire service to commemorate firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty. One minute of complete silence will be maintained. Following the silence, Fire Captains will give a brief tribute.
