Remembering the Oklahoma City Bombing Victims
At Interstate Heating & Air Conditioning, we truly care about all the different communities that make up Oklahoma City. When someone within one of our communities suffers, we all suffer. A true testament to this was the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. While Interstate wasn’t established until 2002, many of our employees, customers and neighbors were affected by this horrendous event. This day has and will forever be etched into our hearts and minds as a day filled with tragedy and great loss.
As a community-driven company, we believe that it is important to care for those around us the best way we know how. On a normal day, we do so by providing professional heating and air conditioning services to residents across OKC; however, on Wednesday, April 19th, the 22nd anniversary of the bombing, we want to join our resilient city in honoring the 168 lives that were lost and the 680 others who were injured.
A remembrance ceremony is being held at the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum from 8:55 AM until 10 AM. This event occurs every year at the exact same time. During the ceremony, there will be 168 seconds of silence followed by a reading of the 168 names. This event is free to the public and will be held on the grounds of the Outdoor Symbolic Memorial. If you’re interested in attending this event, you can find out more information here or by calling (405) 235-3313.

Time: 8:55 AM-10:00 AM
Location: Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum @ the Outdoor Symbolic Memorial. 620 N. Harvey Ave., Oklahoma City, OK.

While the victims of this brutal attack are publicly honored once a year, we all carry them with us in our hearts each and every day. Oklahoma City residents are strong, compassionate people, and we couldn’t be more proud to call this city our home.
