The East Northport Fire Department will be hosting their annual 9/11 Memorial Service on Tuesday, September 11, 2012, at Fire Headquarters located on Larkfield Road and Ninth Avenue.  The East Northport Fire Department has vowed to “Never Forget” that tragic day, and invites the community to join them and firefighters from surrounding departments to remember those innocent lives that were taken at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Flight 93 in Pennsylvania.

The morning ceremony will begin at 9:45 a.m., and an evening candlelight ceremony will start at 7:30 p.m.  Both ceremonies will take place on the Ninth Avenue side of the Firehouse, and will be located around the newly erected piece of 9/11 Steel from Ground Zero that the department received from the Port Authority.

During the ceremony, firefighters will read the victim’s names and the sirens will be sounded at the times of the collapse of the Twin Towers. The Northport High School Tights will be singing the National Anthem and America the Beautiful, with Amazing Grace played by the Northport Pipe & Drum Band.  There will be a 21-Gun Salute from the Marine Corps League and the release of Memorial Doves.  A Memorial Banner will be displayed on a fire engine that lists all of the victim’s names. The service will conclude with the singing of God Bless America by Allision Day.
