To commemorate those who have risked their lives on that tragic morning of September 11, 2001 Fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers invites fellow Philadelphians to participate in a local memorial for the 9/11 Anniversary.
Ayers says that every fire station in Philadelphia will participate in the memorial. Firefighters and citizens will attend the memorial service and at 9:59, the exact moment hen the two towers fell, every station will ring its bells and have a moment of silence. “We are going to ring our bells and recognize: We still remember and we will never forget,” said Ayers.

Dressed in their blue uniforms, firefighters and citizens will have a march from the fire museum at Second and Quarry St. to Betsey Ross’ house and where they will host a program to recognize the memory of the people who were affected by that day: police, paramedics, firefighters, and the families who lost their loved ones.
