The 2007 IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, September 15, 2007. 

Click here to register online.

The mission of the IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial, which is located in the shadow of Pike’s Peak, is to honor the sacrifice made by IAFF members who serve as professional fire fighters and emergency medical personnel who have given their lives in the line of duty.

Since its creation in 1976, the names of fallen IAFF members have been engraved into the wall of honor located behind the memorial. The organization also provides assistance to surviving families and serves as a public reminder of the risks fire fighters take every day.

The IAFF will ensure that the ceremony remains an uplifting one for the families, friends and loved ones, and that it celebrates the lives, heroism and accomplishments of our union’s bravest of the brave.

The IAFF has prepared a video presentation summarizing all the events and activities leading up to the Memorial Service.  The video will be sent to all families and local union presidents in jurisdictions that experienced or reported a line-of-duty death during the past year (June 2006 - June 2007).  It is also available to review on line.
