Firefighters National Memorial Day

Posted September 11, 2022

Today, September 11, 2022, is Firefighters’ National Memorial Day. This day honours firefighters who serve across Canada, and those who have lost their lives or been injured on the job, for their courage and unwavering commitment to serve their communities. It is also a recognition of the dangers firefighters often face when carrying out their duties, and the sacrifice of firefighters who have given their lives for others.

To commemorate, members of the Peace River and County of Northern Lights Fire Service held a brief ceremony this morning at the main fire hall in downtown Peace River. We thank firefighters, both local and worldwide, for their service and bravery.
