10/05/14 335 W - + 4 - 2 Five North Carolina Fallen Firefighters Honored at National Memorial Service October 12

On Sunday, October 12, the 33rd Annual National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service will honor five firefighters from North Carolina who died in the line of duty last year. They are among the 98 firefighters who died in 2013, as well as nine firefighters who died in previous years, who will be remembered at the official national service held at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, MD.

Their names will be added to the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial, which is located on the Academy grounds. The annual national tribute is sponsored by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) and the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Fire Administration.

More than 5,000 people, including members of Congress, Administration officials and other dignitaries, members of the fire service, and families and friends of the fallen firefighters are expected to attend. Members of the fire service, honor guard units and pipe and drum units from across the U.S. will participate in this national tribute.

Visit www.firehero.org for a complete list of the fallen firefighters being honored, along with Memorial Weekend related videos, photos, media and broadcast information.

Yours Truly will be participating again as a volunteer photographer, as part of the Social Media team. See my photos from the 2013 Memorial Weekend, which was my first visit.

See ya there!
