Spring Tower 70 and Ponderosa Tower 61 will be set up on the northbound feeder road of I-45 over the RR tracks with our large American flag flying between the 2 tower buckets. The flag will stay over the roadway. Both towers will set up in the right lane of the feeder road on the northbound side and have flag flying no later than 12:30.

All SFD crews will be in Class B dress uniforms, and will salute the train as it passes.
