The Charleston Fire Department will commemorate the 12th anniversary and honor the firefighters killed during the 9/11 attacks.

The ceremony will take place behind 116 Meeting Street at one of the original fire department bell towers at 9:45 a.m.

The bell will be rung 343 times for the lives lost from the Fire Department of the City of New York starting at 9:59 a.m., the time the south tower of the World Trade Center collapsed.

The public is welcome to attend the ceremony. Emergency service members are also invited and asked to arrive by 9:30 a.m., according to Charleston Fire Department officials. Parking is limited on the street, so attendees are asked to park at the garage on Cumberland Street near Meeting or the garage on Queen Street.
