The event will be conducted at the District’s headquarters located at 5020 Pelham Road (at the corner of Pelham and Garlington Roads) in Greenville County.

With the District’s 9/11 Memorial as the backdrop, the public and members of the fire service are invited to assemble by 9:45 a.m., with a brief observance beginning at 9:59 a.m. – marking the time that the South Tower of the World Trade Center collapsed after being hit by hijacked United Airlines flight 175.
