IAFF to Add 168 Fallen IAFF Members to Wall of Honor
The 28th Annual IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial service will be broadcast live via streaming video on Saturday, September 20. The ceremony in Colorado Springs, Colorado, officially begins at 1:00 p.m. Mountain Time.
At this year’s memorial service, the IAFF will add 168 fallen fire fighters from the United States and Canada to the Wall of Honor.
The IAFF members being honored this year died in the line of duty between June 1, 2013, and June 1, 2014. In addition, IAFF members who died prior to June 1, 2013, but were reported during the past year, also will be honored.
The IAFF and Colorado Springs Local 5 are committed to making the Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial ceremony an uplifting experience for the families, friends and loved ones that celebrates the lives, dedication and accomplishments of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
A complete list of fallen fire fighters to be added to the Wall of Honor is here.
With the addition this year of 168 fallen fire fighters who made the ultimate sacrifice, the Wall of Honor will include 2,976 members who have died in the line of duty since 1976.
