International Firefighters’ Day is a way to say thank you to the world’s firefighters for all that they do to keep our communities safe
Born out of a tragic loss of five firefighters in a wildfire in Victoria, Australia, it was a way to honor their lives and the sacrifice that firefighters are willing to make for you and me on a daily basis. This day of recognition is at the core of what the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) does. Our mission is to honor America’s fallen fire heroes; support their families, colleagues, and organizations; and work to reduce preventable firefighter death and injury.
