The annual tribute to our nation’s fallen firefighters will begin against the backdrop of the United States Capitol on Wednesday, September 30 at 2:00 pm. Leaders of the Congressional Fire Services Caucus will present 87 American flags flown over the U.S. Capitol to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF). These flags will be given to surviving relatives at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service on Sunday, October 4 in Emmitsburg, Maryland.
There is a large need for personnel to participate in the actual ceremony and for this reason we need to make sure we have the numbers needed. We are in the process of finalizing the details for that event and it is VERY IMPORTANT that we get an accurate count of how many attendees we will have on site.
If you are available on Wednesday to participate in the program, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details and so I can maintain a count and send you additional information regarding posting time, walk through details, etc.
