Tulsa -

On Friday morning there will be several 9/11 tributes taking place throughout Green Country to remember the 2,977 people that died in the attack on the World Trade Center.

In Tulsa there is a display of firetrucks and more than 300 flags placed at Tulsa Fire Station 27 that are open to the public for viewing. You can find that display all day at 11707 E. 31st.

Tulsa Firefighters are also doing a stair climb event that begins at 8:46 a.m. to simulate the 110 flights of stairs that first responders climbed that day to save as many lives as they could. That event is on a hillside off LL Tisdale Parkway but it is not open to the public.

Happening in Bixby, there’s a ceremony at 9 a.m. at the World Trade Center memorial at Washington Irving park held by their local Daughters of the American Revolution. DAR member Carolyn Thorton says it will be a short and patriotic ceremony to remember those who died

At Muskogee High School there are 2,977 flags placed to honor each person that lost their life in the attacks. There will also be a recorded video ceremony on the school’s Facebook page that will be available Friday morning and anyone is welcome to drive through the area to view the flag display.
