The Glendale Fire Department will honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice on 9/11 during an event at 8:45 a.m. Wednesday  at the Glendale Public Safety Memorial.

The memorial is located at Glendale Civic Center Plaza, 5750 W. Glenn Drive.

“On September 11, 2001, our lives were forever changed. The lives of our families were impacted, as a new way of life was ushered into the future of our nation as well as each of us individually,” said Glendale Fire Department chaplain Raul Ochoa, who will speak at the event. “That tragic event changed how we would view the words ‘terrorism’ and ‘freedom.’ As we come up on 12 years since that tragic event, we continue to see and feel the repercussions of 9/11.”

The fire department will also honor all of the victims who lost their lives that day as well as acknowledge those in fire, police, EMS and all first responders who serve Glendale as well as other communities.

The event will feature bagpipers, police and fire honor guards, invocations by Capt. Kevin Rash, the 56th FW chaplain at Luke Air Force Base, Glendale police chaplain Tim Heath and a public safety tribute video.   

This event is open to the public, and admission is free.
