Alaska Firefighter Memorial Ceremony set for Sept. 11


    Alaskans have an opportunity to honor fallen firefighters at an upcoming event in Anchorage on Sept. 11 – 20 years after the attack on the World Trade Center in which 343 firefighters lost their lives attempting to save victims of the terrorist attack.

    The Alaska Fallen Firefighter & 20th Anniversary 9/11 Remembrance will occur at the Firefighter Memorial Wall (5th Ave. and Denali Street – near the Sheraton Hotel).

    A procession of firefighters and emergency responders will begin the tribute at 2:45 p.m. with the memorial event running from 3-4 p.m.

    The ceremony will include adding the name of Scott McClain to the Memorial Wall. He was a firefighter with the Anchorage Fire Department. According to his obituary, he died on Oct. 23, 2020, after battling a “courageous battle with an aggressive work-related cancer. He sacrificed his life serving others as a firefighter.”
