An event that affected everyone in America reaches even the beaches this Sunday.
The Ocean City Volunteer Fire Company will begin their service on the Boardwalk at 9:59 a.m. to coincide with the collapse of the South Tower. The firefighter’s memorial is located at the intersection of North Division Street and the Boardwalk.
The memorial was dedicated five years ago in remembrance of firefighters everywhere who gave their lives in service – not just those from Ocean City or at Ground Zero.
From there, a procession will proceed to Firehouse #5 on Keyser Point Road for a dedication ceremony. A catered lunch will be available and the facility will be open to the public. A shuttle bus will be leaving from OC Elementary at 9:30 a.m. for those wishing to avoid traffic.
The annual “Parade of Brothers” will also be talking place that morning, with the procession moving from 27th Street to the memorial between 8:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.
