Fire Department 911 Commemorate

Las Cruces firefighters will recognize the 21st anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the U.S. with a commemorative bell ringing ceremony and memorial stair climb on Sunday morning.
Beginning at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, firefighters will hold silent watch at Fire Station 1. Starting at 8:46 a.m., they will sound bells in commemoration of the first attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11.
