The Ventura County Fire Department is inviting the public to fire stations across the county Tuesday morning to commemorate the tragedies that took place 11 years ago on Sept. 11.
Every county fire station will hold a 9/11 remembrance beginning at 6:45 a.m., to correspond with the time of the World Trade Center South Tower collapse. Fire fighter will roll their trucks and other apparatus out of the stations and onto station ramps at that time.
Ten minutes later, firefighters will stand at attention and raise the nation's flag in silence, and at 6:59, a special tone followed by a series of bells will be broadcast over the department's radio. The particular sequence of bells is traditionally used by the fire service to commemorate firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
Additional activities might take place at some stations.
Moorpark's fire stations are at 295 E. High St. and at 4185 Cedar Springs St., located across the street from the Vons shopping center.
