Baylor will host a memorial service Thursday at the Ferrell Center for the 11 first responders killed in the West explosion.

Doors open at 1 p.m. and the service begins at 2 p.m.. A procession beginning at 11 a.m. will immediately precede the service.

The service has been organized by the Texas Line of Duty Death Task Force, an organization that provides services for Texas public servants and their families in the wake of tragedies.

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are expected to attend the service.

Uniformed personnel participating in the procession are meeting at the HEB terminal at 2501 S. University Parks Drive, next to the Center apartment complex.
