Bagpipes and drums will kick off the event at 7:45 and Police Chief Victor Rodriguez will serve as opening speaker. A moment of silence will take place followed by a “last alarm” bell ceremony at 8:46 a.m. The public is invited to attend the event.

Following the ceremony, the McAllen Stair Climb will commence.  The primary purpose of the climb is to commemorate the lives of the 343 firefighters that died on 9/11. Each participant carries a tag with a picture of a firefighter killed that day. All first responders, military personnel and civilians killed that day are honored as well.
