Bells Across America for Fallen Firefighters

October 8, 2016 @ 8:00 am - October 9, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

As our community knows, the sound of a bell holds special significance for firefighters. The four fives ring for a firefighter who has made the supreme sacrifice.

For the sixth year, on the weekend of October 8-9, 2016, bells will ring from coast to coast as a grateful nation pauses on Sunday, October 9, 2016 to honor those firefighters who died in the line of duty in 2015 and previous years. Fire departments and their places of worship are asked to join the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) for Bells Across America for Fallen Firefighters, part of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend in Emmitsburg, Maryland.

The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation is asking communities, fire service organizations, and religious organizations to help honor fallen firefighters by participating in Bells Across America for Fallen Firefighters.

A moment of remembrance can occur at any time during Memorial Weekend, October 8 & 9. Fire department representatives are encouraged to work with their clergy and community leaders to develop an appropriate tribute.
