  • Located at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland, this impressive memorial records the names and service locations of firefighters who have paid the ultimate price to protect and serve other people and property. An emotional journey is in store for anyone involved in, or related to someone in fire-rescue service. Each year the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation presents a massive memorial service, including candlelight vigil the evening before the main service. Hundreds of surviving family members of the brave fallen men and women attend these services; accompanied and attended by thousands of fire service honor guard, pipe and drum musicians, fire-rescue personnel, friends and family. This event is truly inspiring. Under normal weather circumstances, the events are open to the public. Everyone however must pass through a security checkpoint.
  • Very thoughtful tribute. It's amazing to compare the loss of life in NYC on 9/11 to the average loss nationally in a given year.
  • Awesome tribute to those that made the ultimate sacrifice!
  • A wonderful tribute to our fallen firefighters
  • Awe inspiring! Humbling!
