Sedona Fire District to Host 9/11 Memorial Ceremony

The Sedona Fire District 9-11 Memorial on SR 179 is the setting for a remembrance ceremony at 8:45 a.m. on Wednesday for the 2977 people killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack.

Sedona AZAsk any firefighter what the number 343 means to them and the conversation will immediately turn to September 11, 2001. Of the 2977 people who were killed in that terrorist attack, 343 of them were firefighters and another 71 were police officers. Not only did America change that day, so did the fire service.

On Wednesday September 11, 2019, at 8:45 a.m., the Sedona Fire District will host a 9/11 Memorial ceremony. The setting for the ceremony will be at the 9/11 Memorial Plaza, in front of Sedona Fire Station 6 on SR 179. The Memorial Plaza contains a steel girder from one of the Twin Towers, and is a stunning tribute to those we lost in the attacks.

“We are fortunate to have a significant piece of our country’s history right here in Sedona,” said Fire Marshal Jon Davis, “It is a sobering reminder of those we lost and a fitting tribute to their courage and bravery.”

Please attend this ceremony that will include the presentation of colors by the Sedona Verde Valley Firefighters Charity Honor Guard, Brief Comments by Fire Chief Jon Trautwein, Fire Board Chair Dave Soto, and Scott Jablow of the NY Port Authority (Retired).

Fire Station 6 is located at 2675 State Route 179, Sedona.

    In this home we will never forget. Please show my children that their elders don’t either. Every Sedona school should have their students at this event.

  2. John Daniels W Sedona says:

    To Lynn Isaacs:

    You are spot on with a great idea, why not contact the Superintendant and suggest it?

  3. 3 Buildings fell says:

    Think about 3 buildings fell, only two were hit by airplanes. In the history of skyscrapers none has ever collapsed by fire.

    A huge airliner supposedly hit the pentagon. Yet virtually no debris from the wreckage was found.

    God bless the heroes that tried to save others. Someone should go to jail for their deaths.

  4. @3 buildings fell says:

    Your comment regarding 8/11 conspiracy’s sums up the mentality of most (Deleted by Editor) posters here on Sedona Eye…. Just make stuff up and label it as fact. Oh yea….above all hate any form of government.

  5. Thermite says:

    It is called thermite. Melts steel.
    Remember the cia coined the phrase “conspiracy theory ” to draw attention away from what usually ends up being truth.

  7. Judy says:

    Wondered myself after reading comments. Sedona lazy morning finds me checking out thermite & found of links/links/links telling how to make it in labs, where to buy it – Walmart, Amazon to name 2 & under $50 – this was someplace on Google’s first page of thermite responses. New word for my vocab this week.

    1lb-20lb Thermite Kits, 4500°F Firestarter – Survivalist Forum

    Feb 24, 2012 · Thermite in a nutshell Thermite is a pyrotechnic composition made of aluminum and iron oxide powder. When mixed together and exposed to a high heat source, the two ingredients will burn at 4500° Fahrenheit.The reaction produces so much energy, it turns the iron oxide into pure liquid iron……..

    THEN it made me curious & I scanned other links & suddenly pictures with a thousand words. Look at it. BTW for you plane conspiracy theorists one did hit the Pentagon, it left a mess and many innocent people dead in the building and on a plane, so like New River can you all stop living off the grid of reality. Not everything is a hoax. http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/analysis/compare/fires.html

    FACT: Jet fuel burns at 800° to 1500°F, not hot enough to melt steel (2750°F). However, experts agree that for the towers to collapse, their steel frames didn’t need to melt, they just had to lose some of their structural strength—and that required exposure to much less heat. “I have never seen melted steel in a building fire,” says retired New York deputy fire chief Vincent Dunn, author of The Collapse Of Burning Buildings: A Guide To Fireground Safety. “But I’ve seen a lot of twisted, warped, bent and sagging steel. What happens is that the steel tries to expand at both ends, but when it can no longer expand, it sags and the surrounding concrete cracks.”

    “Steel loses about 50 percent of its strength at 1100°F,” notes senior engineer Farid Alfawak-hiri of the American Institute of Steel Construction. “And at 1800° it is probably at less than 10 percent.” NIST also believes that a great deal of the spray-on fireproofing insulation was likely knocked off the steel beams that were in the path of the crashing jets, leaving the metal more vulnerable to the heat.

    But jet fuel wasn’t the only thing burning, notes Forman Williams, a professor of engineering at the University of California, San Diego, and one of seven structural engineers and fire experts that PM consulted. He says that while the jet fuel was the catalyst for the WTC fires, the resulting inferno was intensified by the combustible material inside the buildings, including rugs, curtains, furniture and paper. NIST reports that pockets of fire hit 1832°F.

    “The jet fuel was the ignition source,” Williams tells PM. “It burned for maybe 10 minutes, and [the towers] were still standing in 10 minutes. It was the rest of the stuff burning afterward that was responsible for the heat transfer that eventually brought them down.”

  9. Denial is not just a river in Egypt says:

    It’s amazing people don’t want to believe the government can lie. But if they have any brains at all they believe politicians lie. How did the third building in the World Trade Center fall? It was not hit by an airplane. The planes hit the top of the Twin Towers, they did not melt like a candle. They all collapsed in free fall, because they were demolished like an old Las Vegas hotel. .

    A little more truth you can deny. Every fiat (paper) currency in the history of man has always gone to it’s intrinsic value, 0. The US has had a fiat currency since 1971.

    What will you do when all your paper money is worthless? Trust the government story? Look up the Weimar Hyperinflation in Germany. You can buy a 100 Trillion Zimbabwe note on ebay.

    Like the first responders that died, you will just be collateral damage.

  10. Thanks Steve S says:

    Thanks Steve S for a breath of common sense!!! These posters 9/11 deniers are crazy people (Deleted by Editor) Yup everyone is out to get em as if they are that important .

  11. @Denial says:

    One again you make statements based on other crazy people’s information much like yourself. If you had any brains you wouldn’t repeat info that comes from other crazy delusional people.

  12. Steve Segner says:

    It is easy , The weight of the buildings is passed through the beamed to the foundations, knocking out just one or two beams put more pressure on the remaining beams, it also sifts the weight from the center to the side.
    The beams do not need to melt, the heat makes them “plastic” and they bend.
    When one or two floors were taken out buy the planes we know flew into the buildings it started a change reactions. You can see each floor pancake into the next floor down. Think Domino…the Weight of each floor passes through and too the floor below. Hope that helps

    Well said Steve Segner… Here’s more information from the same author you referenced.

    September 8, 2019 by IWB

    Authored by Matt Agorist via The Free Thought Project,

    On September 11, 2001, at 5:20 p.m., World Trade Center Building 7 suddenly collapsed into its own footprint, falling at free fall speed for 2.5 seconds of its seven-second complete destruction. WTC 7 was not hit by a plane. After it collapsed, Americans were told that office fires caused a unique — never before seen — complete architectural failure …

    I’m skeptical, try it. That’s the beginning of knowledge. Architectural and engineering studies have proven WTC7 it didn’t happen or some of it didn’t happen the way we were told. Let’s find out. What’s to lose but ignorance itself???? Stop being afraid of scientific research.

    Following this discussion with interest and wanted to ask that today let’s all join together in prayer and thanksgiving for the men and women of New York City and its first responders and the innocents who lost lives and struggle today because of their experiences and sacrifices of that horrific day. May you always keep love in your hearts for the past present and future of us each and all. Thank you. ISB SLC (address deleted by editor)
