The U.S. Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to lead a nationwide effort to remember America’s fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the tax-exempt, nonprofit foundation has developed and expanded programs to honor our fallen fire heroes and assist their families and coworkers.

On October 6, 2019, the 38th National Fallen Firefighter Memorial Service will honor 92 firefighters who died in the line of duty in 2018 and 27 firefighters who died in the line of duty in previous years.

All flags shall be lowered to half-staff today until Sunday, October 6, 2019 in observance of National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service.
