A minute of silence will be observed Tuesday at all Omaha Fire Department stations as a remembrance of those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
At each fire station in the city, crews will move their vehicles outside and activate their emergency lights starting at 9:11 a.m.
Of the nearly 3,000 people killed in the attacks, 412 were emergency workers in New York City who responded to the World Trade Center. That included 343 firefighters, including a chaplain and two paramedics, of the New York City Fire Department.
Gov. Pete Ricketts has ordered that U.S. and Nebraska flags be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset Tuesday to mark the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
