Join the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) for a special video salute to our nation’s fallen firefighters. America’s Tribute to Fallen Firefighters, a 1-hour tribute video, features both the Candlelight and Memorial ceremonial events from this year’s NFFF 40th Anniversary Memorial Weekend.
Hosted by CBS News Anchor Norah O’Donnell, the program recognizes heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty serving their communities and their country. Eighty-seven firefighters died in the line of duty in 2020. Eighty-two firefighters died in 2019. Forty-six firefighters who died in the line of duty in previous years were also honored. The names of those 215 firefighters were dedicated at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial site in Emmitsburg, Maryland, on October 3rd, where they will be forever recognized for their service. The Foundation will always be there to support their families.
The NFFF is encouraging ALL firefighters and state Memorial sites to post this unique tribute on their social media pages. Please watch and share our promo video here.
