Elements of the Knoxville Fire Department and Rural Metro and the Knoxville Police Department and Knox County Sheriff's Department will follow. Those groups, in turn, will be followed by members of the public that would like to take part in the procession.

There will be a brief program at the 9/11 Memorial on the City County Building lawn that will include a wreath-laying by family members in remembrance of the Knox County residents and others who died that morning.
