KFD changes plan for September 11 remembrance

The September 11 remembrance at Keizer Fire District will look a little different this year. 

Due to increased call volume and strain on responders, there will be no formal ceremony or speeches. 

At 7 a.m. the flag will be lowered to half-staff with a moment of silence observed, and a wreath will be placed on the memorial outside of the station.

There will also be a display of 343 flags placed on the front lawn, in honor of the firefighters who lost their lives.

The event is open to the public.
