Firefighters Memorial Day

Firefighters Memorial Day, 4 May

The Trust continues to promote ‘Firefighters Memorial Day’, which will take place each year on the 4 May.

As with previous years, we will be encouraging Fire and Rescue Service personnel to mark this important day, throughout the UK, by simply forming a publicly visible parade at their fire station, or other Fire and Rescue Service premises and to observe the minute’s silence at midday to pay tribute to, and remember, those who have died or have been injured as a result of their duties whilst serving their communities.

The 4 May is also ‘International Firefighters Day’ and in some countries is celebrated as ‘St Florian’s Day, with the intention of commemorating the dedication, commitment, and sacrifices of Firefighters everywhere.
