International Fire Fighters' Day (IFFD): 4 May
It's a difficult job but fire fighters dedicate their lives to the protection of life, property and the environment. Sometimes that dedication is in the form of countless hours volunteered over many years, in others it is many selfless years working in the industry. In all cases, it risks the ultimate sacrifice of a fire fighter’s life. IFFD gives us a chance to honour and thank fire fighters everywhere. To all the fireys out there, please take a moment to stop, reflect on and commemorate the memory of those who are no longer with us and to celebrate the strength that is evident from being members of the fire fighting family.
To fire fighters and those who support them, across the world:
Thank you for your dedication
Thank you for your commitment
Thank you for your sacrifice.
Thank you for protecting our lives
Thank you for protecting our communities.
Thank you for being there for us every hour of the day
Thank you for being there for us every day of the year
Thank you for risking your lives.
Honour and respect for all fire fighters.
