8 October 2017 - 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 and memorial services for firefighters. For the 7th year bells will ring
coast to coast as a grateful nation pauses to honor those firefighters who died in
2016 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 7 - 8.
Fire department representatives are encouraged to work with their clergy and
community leaders to develop an appropriate ceremony.
