4 May 2019 - International
International Firefighters’ Day (IFFD) is a time where the world’s community can recognize and honor the sacrifices 
that firefighters make to ensure that their communities and environment are as safe as possible. It is also a day in 
which current and past firefighters can be thanked for their contributions. On this date you are invited to remember 
the past firefighters who have died while serving our community or dedicated their lives to protecting the safety of us all. 
At the same time, we can show our support and appreciation to the firefighters world wide who continue to protect us so 
well throughout the year.
By proudly wearing and displaying blue and red ribbons pinned together or by participating in a memorial or recognition 
event, we can show our gratitude to firefighters everywhere.
The IFFD ribbons are linked to colours symbolic of the main elements firefighters work with – red for fire and blue for 
water. These colours also are internationally recognised as representing emergency service.

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
