4 May 2024 - International

International Firefighters’ Day (IFFD) is a time where the world’s community can recognize and honour 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 & past firefighters can be thanked for their contributions.

International Firefighters’ Day is observed each year on 4th May. On this date you’re invited to remember 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 & appreciation to the firefighters world wide who continue to protect us so well 

throughout the year.

By proudly wearing & displaying blue & 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 recognized as representing emergency service.
