At 2:30 p.m., Israeli Consul General David Siegel will visit LAFD
station 88, where a 6 p.m. ceremony is also planned, to pay tribute to first
responders and victims of the 2001 terrorist attacks.
The Sherman Oaks station,
whose search-and-rescue firefighters were the first in Los Angeles deployed in
the wake of the attacks, is home to a 9/11 memorial fountain made with a piece
of structural steel from the ruins of the twin towers and a limestone block
from the Pentagon.
