San Mateo friends:
We would like to invite the public to join us on September 11th, 2014 at our Fire Stations.
At 6:48 AM, the San Mateo Fire Department will pay respects to all the victims of September 11, 2001 by lowering the American flag to half-mast. A moment of silence will be observed at 6:50 AM, the time of the collapse of the south tower of the World Trade Center.
All Fire Stations will participate in the flag lowering except for Station 21 in downtown.
At Station 21, the public is invited to join Fire Personnel at 8:47 AM, the time the first plane struck the North Tower WTC1 (8:47 EST).
The San Mateo Fire Honor Guard will lower the flag in front of Station 21 and ring the bell at the memorial. There will also be a bagpiper playing during this ceremony.
Please feel free to join us and God Bless America.
