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

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
