Memorial Weekend service will remember firefighters
from 2019 and 2020
National Fallen Firefighters Foundation
EMMITSBURG, MD — It is an honor for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) to announce that the 40th Annual National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend will be held inperson on October 2 — 3, 2021, at the National Emergency Training Center in Emmitsburg, Maryland.
Last year, and the beginning of 2021, has been an extraordinary time in our nation and worldwide with the global pandemic. With the ever-changing restrictions, the NFFF has been monitoring regularly on whether we would be able to hold a Memorial Service to ensure that the nation’s fallen firefighters from 2019 and 2020 would not be forgotten. We are honored to continue the tradition of gathering in front of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial this October to honor the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.
On October 3rd, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation will again broadcast a National Tribute to honor and remember America’s fallen firefighters. Most importantly, our Fire Hero Families will be invited to attend the Memorial Service where we will once again gather, as a grateful nation honors and remembers the sacrifices of America’s fallen firefighters.
