9/11 11-Year Anniversary Observed in Los Angeles
Today marks the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the United States.
Last year the LAPD was staffed at "full strength" as a precaution. This year Officer Cleon Joseph told us it wasn't clear what the department's plans were, though we'd expect much of the same.
In the meantime the L.A. Fire Department was hosting commemorative events, including, according to spokesman Brian Humphrey:
7:00 AM to 8:30 AM
LAFD Museum and Fallen Firefighter Memorial
1355 North Cahuenga Boulevard
Hollywood, CA 90028
10:00 AM to 11:00 AM
World Trade Center Memorial
LAFD Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center
1700 North Stadium Way
Los Angeles, CA 90012
9/11 Memorial Fountain
LAFD Fire Station 88
5101 North Sepulveda Boulevard
Sherman Oaks, CA 91403
L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was expected to attend the World Trade Center Memorial.
