McPherson Fire Chief Jeff Deal extended an open invitation to join the fire department in a 9/11 memorial ceremony at the fire station from 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 11. Because of the involvement of the fire departments at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania during the 9/11 attacks, fire departments nationwide are joining in to commemorate the lives lost.

“It’s become a reoccurring event with fire departments across the nation that we utilize that day to memorialize and pay tribute to the firefighters that lost their lives, and pay tribute to the firefighters that are doing this every day,” Deal said.

There will be refreshments and cookies available to those in attendance, and they will also conduct tours of the station after the ceremony is over.
