Firefighters Memorial Day falls on 4 May and is an important day for all serving and retired firefighters.
The day honours the sacrifice of firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty, acknowledging the courage and dedication of generations of firefighters, including those who serve our communities today.
The Fire Brigades Union works in partnership with the Firefighters Memorial Trust to ensure that no matter how much time has passed, firefighters who died protecting their communities are remembered.
On duty crews parade in fire kit on station forecourts and stand in a minute's silence at midday as we remember colleagues lost in the line of duty.
Show your support by taking part in the day - contact your local fire station for details. Wear a special wristband for the occasion - all profits go to support a range of initiatives to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Thank You.
