Public can attend city’s 9/11 memorial ceremony


The city’s annual Sept. 11 memorial ceremony will be held on Saturday morning at the Rome Police & Fire Memorial Park on Black River Boulevard.

The event will mark the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attack on New York City on Sept. 11, 2001. This Saturday’s event will also be open to the public and all are invited to attend. Last year’s ceremony was closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 9/11 ceremony will be hosted by the Rome Fire Department. Fire officials said they are looking forward to hosting members of the public again.

The ceremony will start at 9:30 a.m. Saturday at the park, which is located across from the Central Fire Station. The Rome fire and police departments will be in attendance, along with AmCare Ambulance and representatives from the Eastern Air Defense Sector.

The event will include words from local leaders and politicians, along with new names added to the Wall of Honor.

Also on Saturday, the fire department will have its recently purchased antique ladder truck on display at the Central Fire Station.
