Eighteen years ago, on September 11, 2001, the United States was attacked when terrorists crashed planes into the World Trade Center in New York City, into the Pentagon in Washington DC and another in a Pennsylvania field. We’ll never forget the terrible tragedy—but America will stand together.

The Santa Barbara County Fire Department will be holding special remembrance ceremonies for the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy. The special events will honor the first responders and the nearly 3,000 lives lost that day, along with our military members who have perished fighting the terrorism behind the attacks:

Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at 9:00 am:

The public is invited to attend a brief ceremony at any of the 16 Santa Barbara County Fire Dept. fire stations at 9:00 a.m., at which time a moment of silence will be observed, followed by the lowering of the flag to half-staff.

Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at 9:00 am:

A brief ceremony will take place at the Santa Barbara County Fire Department Headquarters, located at 4410 Cathedral Oaks Road. A moment of silence will be observed, followed by the lowering of the flag to half- staff. Fire Chief Mark Hartwig will have brief remarks prior to the conclusion of the ceremony.

The public is welcome to attend both ceremonies.
