The Lincoln Police Department, along with Lincoln Fire and Rescue and the Lancaster Sheriff’s department will hold a 9/11 remembrance event Tuesday morning on the north steps of the Capitol building. This is the second year the agencies have partnered together for this event.

Since the tragedies of 9/11, public agencies all across the United States have honored the victims and first responders who lost their lives in the attacks.

Lincoln Fire and Rescue Public Information Officer Nancy Christ says it’s important for the public to see these agencies working together to honor those lost that day.

“We work every day, as a team, in the streets here in Lincoln. We really, depend on one another, and you know, it’s important to send a message to everyone that it continues to be true, that we work as one, we work as a team, to protect the public," Christ said.

Members of each agency are expected to speak. Honor guards will be present and LPD will give a 21-gun salute. All 14 fire stations around Lincoln will also honor the victims and first responders.  

The event at the Capitol is open to the public and will be held on the north steps starting at 8:40 a.m., concluding around 9:30 a.m. Central Time.
