The Firefighters of your Fillmore City Fire Department would like to invite you to attend a memorial celebration marking the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001. As a nation, we were brought together in tragedy, captivated by the images of destruction, despair, fear, and raw emotion. The only images strong enough to help us cope with such devastation were the amazing images of unity, strangers helping strangers, heroism, and watching America’s front line of public servants run toward the face of danger. We invite you to join us this Saturday morning to remember the civilians, Firefighters, Police Officers, and Military Personnel who perished on that fateful day. Please reflect quietly as I read a few brief reminders of what our country endured on the morning of September 11th, 2001.

Let us remember the sacrifices made by so many that morning. From the everyday heroes who helped save perfect strangers, to the first responders who walked toward danger in hopes of helping anyone they could, they were all a shining example of how we can easily come together in times of national crisis. We will never forget those brave individuals, and we will never forget September 11th, 2001.

Gathering at the Fillmore Fire Station will start at 6:30 AM in the front. The American flag will be raised promptly at 6:55 followed by a County-wide radio broadcast of a remembrance.

Fillmore Fire Station 91 is located at 711 Landeros Lane, face masks and social distancing will be required. Refreshments will be served afterwards.
