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 conduct a silent watch at Las Cruces Fire Station 1, 201 E. Picacho Ave. Starting at 8:46 a.m., they will sound bells in commemoration of the first attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11.

The bell ringing ceremony will commemorate each significant event from that day:

  • 8:46 a.m., American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower.
  • 9:03 a.m., United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower.

  • 10:28 a.m., collapse of the North Tower.

Beginning at 8 a.m. Sunday, firefighters will participate in a memorial stair climb at Electronic Caregiver Tower, 506 S. Main St. The memorial stair climb, while not necessarily closed to the public, will be in a private building and in the stairwell that is not conducive to public viewing.

Photos of both events will be posted on the Las Cruces Fire Department’s Facebook page.
