Community invited to SKFR Sept. 11 remembrance ceremony Monday

South King Fire &Rescue will be remembering the events of the 9/11 attacks with a special ceremony. Everyone is welcome to join the department during the event, which begins at 1 p.m. Monday at the SKFR station at 3700 S. 320th St., in Federal Way.

Monday will be the 16th anniversary of the attacks. SKFR’s special ceremony will feature guest speaker John Tew, a former New York firefighter, who will share his memories of the day and the aftermath of the events.

Sept. 11 survivor and author Earl Johnson will also speak by offering his memories and thoughts as a survivor of the terrorist attacks.

Johnson was on the 51st floor of one of the Twin Towers during the attacks.

The SKFR memorial is one of the most complete Sept. 11 tribute locations on the West Coast.

The small park in front of the fire station displays 64 artifacts from all three of the Sept. 11 plane crashes. All the names of the 2,977 victims who died in the attacks are engraved on a granite wall.
