Police, firefighters mark 9/11 attacks

Posted: Thursday, September 11, 2003

JUNEAU - An observance marking the second anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks is being hosted today by Capital City Fire and Rescue volunteers.

A procession with two police vehicles and two fire engines is scheduled to leave the Mendenhall Mall parking lot at 7 a.m., running lights, but no sirens, said Sam Dalin, the fire department's chaplain.

The vehicles are scheduled to work their way along Riverside Drive to Riverside Rotary Park. At 7:30 a.m., Dalin is scheduled to speak at the memorial honoring fallen police officers and firefighters.

Dalin said a simple service lasting seven to 10 minutes is planned, with the victims of the attack on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon outside of Washington, D.C., being remembered.
