October 2001: Official FDNY Memorial Service Set for November 18

The official FDNY 9-11 Memorial Service will be held Sunday, November 18, 2001 at Madison Square Garden, 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. The announcement was made by the organizing task force for the event which includes representatives of the FDNY, the New York Mayor's Office and the IAFF. There is a limited seating capacity for indoor seats which will be reserved primarily for the 7,000 family members of the 344 fallen firefighters; 9,000 off-duty members of the FDNY and 10,000 of their family members. Additional public figures including US Congress, New York officials and representatives from around the world will attend, which will make it unlikely that many members of the fire service from outside of New York City will be able to attend the actual service inside the auditorium.
