The Bartlesville Fire Department will hold a special ceremony at 9 a.m. on Sept. 11 to honor those who were injured or lost their lives during a terrorist attack on U.S. soil on Sept. 11, 2001.

A total of 2,977 people were killed, including 343 firefighters, 23 New York City police officers and 37 officers at the Port Authority.

The brief ceremony will be held in front of Central Fire Station, 601 S. Johnstone Ave. Everyone is invited to attend.
