PHOENIX - The city of Phoenix plans its 20th annual ceremony to honor municipal employees who died on the job.
The ceremony is set for Thursday morning at the Orpheum Theatre.
Officials plan to honor three city employees who died last year, including firefighters Brandi Schamadan and Brad Harper, and Phoenix Police Officer Daryl Raetz.
The ceremony is expected to be attended by Mayor Greg Stanton, Vice Mayor Bill Gates and City Council members, among others.
Following the ceremony, employees plan to form a line of unity to the City of Phoenix Public Employee Memorial just outside City Hall.
