Use this-911 flags for websiteIt’s a bittersweet sight, those 343 little flags waving in the breeze on the lawn of Station 11. They signal the approaching anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. Each flag memorializes a firefighter lost in the 9/11 attack.

On Sunday morning, Sept. 11 at 10 a.m., Station 11 will host a brief ceremony in observance of the anniversary with words from Retired Battalion Chief Dave George, Clayton’s vice mayor, Jim Diaz and CCFPD Fire chief, Jeff Carman. The program will last about 30 minutes and will conclude with the somber Final Alarm Bell Ringing Ceremony.   There will be limited seating for seniors and the disabled. Station 11 will be open for tours following the program.
