Tooele City is proud to be joining in a countywide remembrance of the 20th Anniversary of 9/11.
There are two events being held that day in commemoration of 9/11. Tooele City is also hosting a hygiene kit drive to collect items needed by the Community Resource Center. We will be collecting items the week of Sept. 7 – Sept. 10, 2021 to be delivered to the Community Resource Center on September 11, 2021 as part of our National Day of Service and Remembrance (see details below).

Please note the countywide siren system will sound at 6:46 a.m. and the Tooele City Fire Station #1 siren will sound again at 7:03 a.m. in remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11/2001. The public is invited to join us for this event as Mayor Debbie Winn, Police Chief Adrian Day, and Fire Chief Chris Shubert honor our local first responders.
