Numerous groups throughout the Tampa Bay area planned ceremonies to mark the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

At 9:50 a.m. the Clearwater Fire & Rescue Department planned to bring out trucks with their lights on at each fire station. Nine minutes later, firefighters will stand at attention as an announcement will be made over the radio, followed by a moment of silence.

Tampa held an observance with members of the fire department and Mayor Bob Buckhorn at the Tampa Firefighters Museum.

At Curlew Hills Memory Gardens in Palm Harbor, a first responder at the World Trade Center was scheduled to speak at an event that includes a traveling exhibit featuring the names and photos of Florida soldiers who have died fighting the war on terror since 2001.
