As the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack approaches, the Turlock Fire Department intends to continue the tradition of acknowledging and honoring the sacrifices made by so many first responders and civilians. Due to steadily increasing COVID-19 cases throughout Stanislaus County, the decision has been made to forego our annual 9/11 ceremony to which the community has always been invited. In place of the ceremony, each fire station throughout the city will engage in a small private ceremony in observance of this day. We encourage the public to do the same in the safety of their own home. Our hope is to return to our traditional ceremony in 2022 which will include an open invitation to citizens throughout the community.
