LAFD 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony

We would like to inform you that the public and press are cordially invited to join Fire Department, Law Enforcement and Military agencies for a “9/11 Remembrance Ceremony” dedicated to those who perished on September 11, 2001.

Speakers will include Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Fire Chief of the Los Angeles Fire Department, Brian L. Cummings, Fire Chief of the Los Angeles County Fire Department, Daryl L. Osby, Los Angeles Police Chief, Charlie Beck, Los Angeles County Assistant Sheriff, Marvin O. Cavanaugh, United States Coast Guard Captain of the Port, Roger LaFerriere, U.S. Congresswoman Janice Hahn and Former Governor Gray Davis.

This location is especially noteworthy due to the presence of two memorials dedicated to the events of September 11, 2001.

The first memorial is dedicated to the World Trade Center and consists of a 23-ton, 22-foot tall steel column that was originally part of the lobby structure. This column is believed to be the largest remnant of the World Trade Center on the West Coast.

The second memorial is located in the lobby of our training center and is titled “Towering Memories.” The “Towering Memories” memorial consists of two shapes similar to the silhouette of the Twin Towers that comprised the World Trade Center. Included on the memorial is a list of names of those who lost their lives at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the Pennsylvania plane crash site.
