This weekend is the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend in Emmitsburg Maryland on the Campus of the National Fire Academy.
The event honors the sacrifice of all of the fallen firefighters from the previous year. There is a candle light vigil on Saturday night and the full Memorial Service on Sunday go to Firehero.org for the list and times for all the events. Obviously going to this event is important, and it is encouraged if you can make it to Maryland then you should go. However if you can not because your on shift (like me), or you just can not make the trip then you can view all of the ceremonies from the comfort of your home. Below will be the embedded player for all the events this weekend in Maryland. While we should always remember our fallen brothers, make a special point this weekend to remember the sacrifices of our brothers and spend some time going over the LODD’s either alone or better yet with the guys in your firehouse.
