All on-duty fire personnel will gather with fire apparatus at the site of the Firefighter’s Memorial in front of the station for a brief ceremony with local officials attending.
Members of the public are invited and encouraged to attend the event. Following the ceremony, there will be an open house of the fire station, including a tour of the Fire Museum in Station No. 1 from 12:30 to 1 p.m.
