6 October 2019 - Nationwide

Bells Across America.  Fire Departments sounded a series of bells when firefighters died in the line of duty to alert all 

members that a comrade had made the ultimate sacrifice.  This time-honored tradition continues today during funerals 

& memorial services for firefighters.  Bells will ring coast to coast as a grateful nation pauses to honor those firefighters 

who died in 2018 and previous years.

  The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation is asking communities, fire service organizations, and religious

organizations to help us honor our fallen firefighters by participating in Bells Across America for Fallen Firefighters.  

A moment of remembrance can occur any time during Memorial Weekend, October 5 - 6. 

Fire department representatives are encouraged to work with their clergy and community leaders to develop an 

appropriate ceremony. http://tinyurl.com/k8robd8
