2020 CANADIAN FIREFIGHTER MEMORIAL SERVICE

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation will conduct a solemn service to honour and remember all those firefighters that have given their lives in service to Canadians.

Join a small contingent of Foundation and local firefighters as we honour, virtually, those that have been engraved on the Canadian Firefighter Memorial. The ceremony will be live streamed (sponsored by M&L Supply) on the 13th of September at 1100 hours EST on the Foundation's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/CFFF.FCPMS. We respectfully ask that the ceremony not be attended by those close to the memorial site in order to respect government guidelines during the pandemic.
