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 are invited to attend the annual Tree Lighting where they can personally place their ornaments on the tree. These tributes in honor of fallen firefighters remain on display throughout the holiday season.
