Issue a Proclamation
To honor America’s fallen fire heroes, ask your local and state officials to issue a proclamation. Since the Memorial Service begins National Fire Prevention Week, you may want to tie the two events together in the proclamation.
Lower Your Flag
Did you know that the law requires the American flag be lowered in tribute on only a few days each year? Quite appropriately, one of these days is the observance of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service.
Sound the Sirens
Should your agency wish to participate, on Sunday, October 7, 2018 at noon, many stations across the country will sound their sirens in honor of the fallen firefighters. Please notify your community ahead of time if you will join in this tradition.
Sign Remembrance Banner
The Remembrance Banner is a Memorial Weekend tradition. On this virtual Remembrance Banner page you can pay tribute to a fallen firefighter or share a special Memorial Weekend story.
Feature Heroes on Your Website
Help us honor America’s firefighters who have died in the line of duty. You can pay tribute on your website by including this National Fallen Firefighters Tribute Widget.
Families have a chance to record a Forever in Our Hearts® Hero Tribute video to share memories of their firefighter. Help us remember these firefighters by watching their story.
