9/11 – 17th Anniversary of September 11th.
AUGUSTA, GA — September 3, 2018 - Fire Chief Christopher E. James would like to inform the public that the Augusta Fire Department will host a ceremony beginning at 8:30am on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 at Fire Station #8 - 1898 Highland Ave, Augusta, GA 30904 to reflect on the 17th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon by terrorist.
Members of the Augusta Fire Department will be posting and lowering the colors to half-staff for the ceremony.
There will be similar ceremonies happening at every station in Augusta at the same time. (This will be done if the units are not out on a call or receive a call during the time.) We are asking citizens to join us at Fire Station #8, whichever station is closest to their home or whichever station they would like to spend time of reflection with. We would also like to let all First Responders, Schools, Veterans, Veteran Organization and Service Organizations that service the Augusta area (CSRA) they are invited to attend this event.
This event is open to all citizens who wish to gather in remembrance of those who perished on that infamous day.
“Each year the anniversary allows us the reliance that even the darkest days in our life gives provides hope of a brighter tomorrow.” – Chief James
