Chandler will dedicate a steel beam from the ruins of the World Trade Center during a memorial service on Sept. 11 to honor the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The city is inviting the public to the 30-minute event that will include Mayor Jay Tibshraeny, Fire Chief Jeff Clark and Police Chief Sherry Kiyler.

The event will include the unveiling of a memorial that includes a 417-pound section of I-beam that is more than five feet long, and that had been on display for several months inside the Fire Department headquarters. The memorial was designed with feedback from fire personnel and incorporates elements that represent the attacks on the Trade Center, the Pentagon and the Pennsylvania field where Flight 93 crashed.

The 30-minute memorial begins at 8:40 a.m. at the Fire Department headquarters, 151 E. Boston St.
