Save the Date for the Fire Hero Family Wellness Conference 2020 – May 17 – 20!

When a firefighter dies in the line of duty, life changes forever for the surviving family members. For families of firefighters who have been honored at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial, there is a place to go each year to find support and comfort, make new friends, and create new memories. Each year the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation hosts a 2-day conference devoted to the needs of adult family members who have lost a firefighter in the line of duty. Family members attend workshops on a variety of topics related to grief, wellness, self-care, and practical skills. Bonding with others who have experience a similar loss, these family members build lasting, supportive friendships. The conference is open to spouses, life partners, parents, siblings, and adult children of firefighters who have been honored at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial in Emmitsburg, Maryland. The Fire Hero Family Wellness Conference is held each spring in a different location to provide all family members the opportunity to attend.

The Conference is supported in part by a grant from the Department of Justice.
