The Perry Township Fire Department is planning a 24-hour memorial event to commemorate 9/11.

On Saturday, Sept. 11, the fire department will be at the University Parkway overpass over the Lloyd Expressway on the west side of Evansville, Indiana, flying a large American flag to honor those who sacrificed their lives in the 9/11 attacks.

The department will be present from midnight on Saturday until 11:59 p.m., spending a full 24 hours commemorating the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

The fire department says all first responders and apparatus from any public safety agencies in the area are more than welcome to attend the event, and requests Class A uniforms be worn if possible.

The public is also invited to stop by during the event.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
