0912 Hoover fire remembrance 9/11
Members of the Hoover Fire Department remember the lives lost on 9/11 at a previous remembrance ceremony held at Station 2.
The public is invited to attend 9/11 remembrance ceremonies held at each of the Hoover Fire Stations, including Inverness Station 7 and Greystone Station 8.
The remembrance ceremonies are held on the morning of September 11 beginning at 8:58 a.m. at each station’s flagpole. At 8:59 a.m., each station’s engine bell rings to mark the time of the World Trade Center’s South Tower collapse. At 9 a.m. a moment of silence begins to reflect on all lives lost that day—law enforcement, fire service and civilian.
“This occurs simultaneously at all stations, with a usually larger turnout at Fire Station 2 on Patton Chapel Road,” said Fire Captain John Dennis of Hoover Fire Station 7. “The public is invited and encouraged to attend at any fire station.”
