9/11 Memorial Ceremony – 8:46am – Fire Dept.
The Atlantic Beach Fire Department will host a dedication ceremony to unveil the memorial monument at the Atlantic Beach Fire Station on September 11, 2014 at 8:46 a.m.

Anyone who would like to pay their respects to those who died during the September 11, 2001 attacks is welcomed to attend and share in a moment of silence.

The Atlantic Beach Fire Department worked hard to acquire a piece of the twisted steel from one of the World Trade Center towers that was destroyed by terrorist during the 9/11 attacks. The steel is 8 ft by 3 ft and weighs 2,200 lbs. The monument is displayed by the flag pole in front of the fire station as a reminder of the sacrifices emergency service workers make and a reminder of the tragic 9/11 events. The display of this steel in Atlantic Beach is a perfect fit as we have visitors from all across the country and world.
