The City of St. Augustine will hold its’ annual Ceremony of Remembrance. Open to the public — Sunday, September 11, 2022 at 8:30am at the St. Augustine Fire Department’s main station. Also broadcast live online on the Fire Department’s Facebook page for those not able to attend. Held in honor of those who died in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
The 15-minute program includes a presentation of the colors, a musical presentation, remarks by St. Augustine Fire Chief Carlos Aviles, and remarks by guest speaker Erin Durkin.
At 8:45am, the ceremony concludes with a minute of silence — timed to coincide with the time the first plane hit the first tower of the World Trade Center in 2001.
Then, the Fire Department will conduct the “Striking the Four 5’s” by ringing its historic 1900 Fire Bell in four intervals of five rings each. This is a time-honored tradition signifying the last alarm of a firefighter. It is performed in honor of the firefighters, law enforcement officers, military personnel and civilians who died on 9/11.
