Austin Firefighters Association will hold their annual memorial to remember all who fell on September 11, 2001.  This ceremony also incorporates a remembrance of Austin Firefighters, active and retired, who have passed away in the last year.  The event will take place at Buford Tower. The ceremony will include the Austin Firefighter Honor Guard, Emergency Services Pipes and Drums Association and AFD Quint 1.
