Posted: Updated:
DOWNTOWN MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Wednesday morning at 8:45 a.m., Memphis firefighters and policemen will join together in what's become an annual dual ceremony to mark the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Not only will they commemorate the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks they will also honor firefighters and police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

The ceremony takes place at the Fire Museum of Memphis on the corner of Main Street and Adams downtown.

As well, the State of Mississippi will also take time to remember those who lost their lives in the 9-11 terrorist attacks. Gov. Phil Bryant has called for a moment of silence at 7:46 a.m. Wednesday and also ordered United States and Mississippi flags flown at half staff until sunset.

Gov. Bryan also proclaimed Sept. 11 as a voluntary day of service and remembrance.

"We also remember the heroic acts of the many Americans who served those in need," the governor said. "Deborah and I will pray for those who lost loved ones during this tragedy and for those in uniform who continue to keep us safe."
