Glendale fire stations to commemorate 9/11

Fire stations across Glendale on Sunday will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

In Glendale, a commemoration ceremony begins at 6:50 a.m. when the Fire Department is scheduled to lower the flag to half-staff and air a tribute by the Verdugo Dispatch Center. All 44 Verdugo stations will toll three sets of five tones to honor the firefighters killed on 9/11.

At 7:04 a.m., firefighters at each station will read a portion of all the names of the firefighters who perished while responding to the terrorist attacks. Each of Glendale’s fire stations, from 21 through 29, will end the ceremony with a prayer led by a community religious leader.

Glendale Mayor Laura Friedman, Fire Chief Harold Scoggins, Police Chief Ron De Pompa, in addition to 9/11 survivor Kevin Danni, are scheduled to speak at Fire Station 21, 421 Oak St.
