September 8, 2019 -- Early Monday morning, the Fire Department will honor the memories of the 2,977 people, including two Santa Monicans, who died in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Among those who died in the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia were 343 firefighters, 60 police officers and eight paramedics.

The "brief and solemn ceremony" consistent with the International Association of Fire Chief recommended protocols will take place at Santa Monica's five community fire stations at 6:45 a.m.

That was the time on the West Coast when American Airlines Flight 11 slammed into the north tower of the World Trade Center.

The public, especially neighbors of Santa Monica’s fire stations, are encouraged to attend the ceremony at the following stations:

Station 1 1337 7th Street
Station 2 222 Hollister Avenue
Station 3 1302 19th Street
Station 5 2450 Ashland Avenue
Station 7 1100 Pacific Coast Highway

Carolyn Beug, 48, a filmmaker and writer who devoted herself to Samohi's track team, was on American Airlines Flight 11, while Santa Monica resident Dora Menchaca, 45, a medical researcher, was on American Airlines Flight 77, which crashed into the Pentagon.

Another plane crashed into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania during an attempt by the passengers and crew to regain control.

Santa Monica's retired Fire Chief Jim Hone -- who was then fire marshal -- was a member of one of three California urban search and rescue teams.

An artifact from the Ground Zero site resides on the second floor of the Public Safety Facility just outside the Santa Monica Fire Department’s administration office and is open for viewing by the public during normal business hours.
