    I wish that there would be something special down here, but I highly doubt there will be.

    Even in the career departments, It's simply not important as there are very few remberences planned each year, and the only attendees for the ones that do have one are the personnel on duty. There are no attendees who are not on the clock and not required to be there.

    It's really quite sad, and while it bothers me, I realize that there is in all liklihood little that can be done to change it. The firefighter LODDs that occurred on 911 simply do not seem important enough to take a few minutes to attend a remberance ceremony.

    Why don't you get your crews together to make something special out of it. Plan a ceremony in your primary station, invite all the surrounding departments and the community to attended. Make it known that this is an important date of remembrance, not only for the fire community, but for Americans in general. Thousands of men and women were murdered on that day, not only our brothers. It's up to you to you to make the change you wish to see.

    I ahve tried. Even something as simple as lowering the flag at the time the first tower was hit or the firast tower collpased was dismissed.

    It's just not my department as you simply do not see any fire department memorials around. the nieghboring city has one but the only attendees are some of the admin staff. One year it was on a Saturday and one member of the fire department came.

    On a positive notes, the Boy Scouts organize a small service at a local cememtary every year and we do get 5-6 of our members for that as the honor guard, but it's almost impossible to motivate any kind of effort on an in-house level.

    It's just frustrating. It may very well be a distance thing, and I may be overreacting, but it just bothers me that something so devestating to the fire service is seemingly so ignored.

    Nope.

    I have only seen a couple of departments in this area set the flags at half-mast on 9-11.

    Default September 11th Ten Year Anniversary

    Does anyone have information about the events taking place at the World Trade Center site besides the opening of the Memorial? My wife and I are planning on attending the 10 year anniversary to pay respects! Thanks!

    I plan on doing the same. I'm trying to get a group of firefighters from my area to go up and pay our respects.

    The weekend of Aug 22 in Mayfield NY there is a parade dedicated to the rememberance - if you check for the Bannertown Fair you should find info...there is supposed to be a rig from NYC coming up, motorcycle groups, etc etc etc....

    As for 9/11 itself - there will be a ceremony in Albany, not sure of details yet....there are also some rides being organized to the actual site, I don't have any specifics on those though.

    There are 9/11 stair climb events being organized. I might do that or go up to ground zero. Haven't decided yet.

Engine 40 Ladder 35 is located at 131 Amsterdam Ave and West 66th Street in Manhattan.

    The smashed, mangled, partially burned rig from Ladder Co. 3 -- which lost 12 firefighters on 9/11/01 is scheduled to leave a JFK Airport hangar after nearly 10 years in storage and move into the 9/11 Memorial Museum this week. The truck will find a resting place in the cavernous, 120,000-square- foot museum 70 feet below ground, exhibited with Midtown's Engine 21 and an FDNY ambulance "to show the stories of first-responders," a memorial spokesman said.

    Several in my department have organized a 9/11 stair climb. Each one of the 343 participants are going to wear a picture with the name and assignment of one of the brothers that lost their lives on that day.

    personally i am not going to be one of the attending the event. I am going to work a MET for one of the organizers of the event without asking for a shift in return. I personally am going to honor the 343 brothers that gave their lives for our country by getting on the rig and riding out the door.

    city firehouses will display 343 US flags in front of the firehouses as it has been done over the past 10 years.

    Flags WILL be flown at half mast as will as a moment of silence at 8:46AM EST. This is a presidential order.

    Hi E40FDNYL35,
    My name is Chad, Iím an Engineer for Santa Maria City Fire on the central coast of California. A group of us has been to NYC for the 1 and 5 year anniversary of 9/11 and will be there again for the 10th. I found your post about the memorial for E40/L35 and we will be honored to be there. We are looking for some local places and ďwatering holes" to gather with other firefighters. In the past we have hooked up with a bunch of guys and had a blast! Most of those guys have since retired and we are looking for a group who is interested in sharing their favorite places with us. We look forward to meeting some new brothers soon and paying our respects to those that gave it all.
    -Chad
    P.S. I sent this to you in a private message but donít think it went through
