Santa Clara Fire and Police Departments Will Honor the Fallen on the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Saturday Morning

By Robert Haugh

This Saturday morning at 6:59 am, the Santa Clara Fire and Police Department Honor Guards will commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

The location will be at the City Hall flagpole. The 6:59 am time corresponds to the tragedy when the South Tower of the World Trade Center collapsed. 

Bagpipes will conclude the short event. Attendees are asked to wear masks. 

The ceremony will be broadcast live at on the Santa Clara Fire Department page.

After the event, a video of the ceremony will be on the City’s Facebook, YouTube channel, and on the City’s website.


  1. The 49ers block on our city council who recently voted to cut Santa Clara police officer positions, out of respect for the public safety officers who gave their life on 9/11, should stay away from the 9/11 ceremony, imo.

    • Ted, please explain how they are not related. Please use facts and not ad hoc statements. You wouldn’t be on the city council, or somebody carrying their dirty laundry, would you?
