Niagara Falls firefighters to mark 9/11 anniversary

The Niagara Falls Fire Department will mark the 16th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, with a ceremony Monday morning in the firehouse at Royal Avenue and Hyde Park Boulevard.

All available Niagara Falls fire and police personnel, along with civilians, will gather at the firehouse before 9:58 a.m.

At 9:59 a.m., the exact time of the collapse of the South Tower of the World Trade Center in which 403 firefighters and police officers died, the fire radio dispatcher will read a memorial statement over the air, followed by another minute of silence.

The ceremony will conclude with brief remarks by Mayor Paul A. Dyster, Fire Chief Thomas Colangelo and Police Superintendent E. Bryan DalPorto.
