America's Tribute to Fallen Firefighters
It is critical that we show our Fire Hero Families and firefighters that our nation will always honor and remember its heroes. This fall, communities joined the national Fallen Firefighters Foundation for the tribute to firefighters who died in the line of duty while protecting our neighborhoods. In 2020, firefighters who died in the line of duty were honored in Bells Across America for Fallen Firefighters on October 3-4, 2020. Every year, Bells Across America For Fallen Firefighters begins the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service. This annual tradition will continue to honor our nation’s heroes and let their families know that their beloved firefighter will always be remembered. On Sunday, October 4th, the lives of 82 firefighters who died in the line of duty in 2019 and 21 firefighters who died in previous years were honored during America’s Tribute to fallen Firefighters.
