Although we will not be together in Emmitsburg this fall for the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend, it is critical that we show our Fire Hero Families and firefighters that our nation will always honor and remember its heroes.  Even during these extraordinary times, we find comfort and hope in coming together to support one another.  This fall, communities can join the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation for the tribute to firefighters who died in the line of duty while protecting our neighborhoods.

Communities participate in Bells Across America for Fallen Firefighters, as part of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend, the official national tribute to our fallen firefighters.

During this annual tribute, communities, faith congregations, and fire departments ring their bells on the weekend of the national tribute for fallen firefighters.  In 2020, we again invite you to participate in Bells Across America for Fallen Firefighters on October 3 – 4, 2020.

“Every year, Bells Across America for Fallen Firefighters begins the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service.  Although we cannot gather in Emmitsburg, we will unite as a nation to salute those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their communities.  This annual tradition will continue to honor our nation’s heroes and let their families know that their beloved firefighter will always be remembered,” said Troy Markel, Chairman of the Board of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation

On Sunday, October 4, the lives of 82 firefighters who died in the line of duty in 2019 and 21 firefighters who died in previous years will be honored during America’s Tribute to Fallen Firefighters online at 10:00 am (EDT), when the bells of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Chapel will toll for our nation’s heroes.

Ring out in respect of our fallen firefighters and in support of their families by joining us for Bells Across America for Fallen Firefighters. Find resources and sign up at www.bellsacrossamerica.com and visit weekend.firehero.org to learn more about America’s Tribute to Fallen Firefighters.
