For New Families
This special Weekend will honor the service and sacrifice of your loved one and the other firefighters being honored this year. The Memorial Weekend is different than other memorial services you have attended. You will have opportunities to meet fire service survivors from across the country so that you can share experiences, make lasting friendships, and begin to look ahead.
For Returning Survivors
Many of you have attended the events and know how special and healing the Memorial Weekend is for the fire service family. We invite survivors of fallen firefighters honored in previous years to return for the Memorial Weekend.
For the Fire Service
Both the Candlelight Service and National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service are open to the public unless weather or other factors prohibit holding the Candlelight Service outdoors.
