December 4, 2020, 4:30pm – 5:30pm
Please join us online for the 2020 Fire Hero Family Tree Lighting. The 2020 Lighting will be streamed on Facebook and our website.
Each year the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation decorates holiday trees in memory of all fallen firefighters. These beautiful trees are on display in the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Chapel, featuring ornaments from the families and departments of America’s Fire Heroes from around the country. Families, firefighters, and friends are invited to watch the annual Fire Hero Family Tree Lighting.

Remember Your Firefighter on the Fire Hero Family Trees
Help us honor your firefighter by sending an ornament for one of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation’s Fire Hero Family trees. Once your ornament is received, it will be placed on one of the trees in and around the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Chapel — this year and every year. Download the event flyer or share this page with family and friends and watch together with us online on December 4, as the trees with your loved one’s ornaments are lit.
Please send ornaments remembering your firefighter by December 3, 2020 to:
