National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Closed Due to Government Shutdown

National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Closed Due to Government Shutdown


Due to the lapse of funding causing a Federal Government shutdown, the campus of the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) in Emmitsburg, Maryland, the home of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial, is closed to the public. Until the shutdown is resolved we ask for everyone’s patience and understanding. Until the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) can resume normal operations at our Emmitsburg office, the following measures are in effect:

Any mail being sent to the Foundation’s Emmitsburg address should be sent to:

National Fallen Firefighters Foundation
PO Drawer 498
Emmitsburg, MD 21727

Any package deliveries that do not ship to a PO Box should be shipped to the Foundation’s Crofton office address at:

National Fallen Firefighters Foundation
2130 Priest Bridge Drive, Suite 6
Crofton, MD 21114

Visitors will not be allowed on campus, including visits to the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial.

We appreciate everyone’s support and understanding
and we wish everyone a Happy Holiday!
