Officers and firefighters invite the community to honor and remember those who lost their lives in 2001.

There will be two ceremonies.

The first ceremony will begin at 9:30 a.m. on September 11 at the Fire Station 15 at 1315 Buena Vista Road. The second ceremony will be at 7:00 p.m. at the same fire station.

Portrait of a Warrior Gallery will be memorializing the 27 local Kern County residents that were called to duty with a Roll Call Ceremony during the Evening Ceremony.

Shuttles are to be available from the Park at River Walk throughout the day.
