FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 11, 2019
Beginning at 10:00 a.m., firefighters from across the country will join New York City’s bravest and families of the fallen at ground zero in lower Manhattan. From there, the group will march across the Brooklyn Bridge with flags representing the firefighters from Battalion 57 in Brooklyn killed in the line of duty at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. The journey from ground zero to Brooklyn serves to symbolically bring the brothers back home. The procession will also include an FDNY ceremonial flag for every New York City Firefighter killed on 9/11 and an American flag, in remembrance of all who died that day.
Led by fire trucks and motorcycles, the procession will march past several firehouses on the way to the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph, located at 856 Pacific Street in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. The procession is expected to arrive at around 11:45 a.m.
The FDNY Mass in honor of the fallen heroes will be celebrated at the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph at 12:00 p.m.
