By Chief Robert Peacock
October 3, 2021

The Watch Hill Fire Station, as well as several businesses and residences throughout the district, were lit with red lights last night in honor of the fallen firefighters throughout the nation.

Every October, a grateful Nation honors its fallen fire service heroes at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Park, located on the campus of the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland. The National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend is the official national tribute to those firefighters who died in the line of duty during the previous year.

Nearly everyone knows a firefighter. They are our family, friends, and co-workers. They respond to a stranger's call for help without hesitation and serve with pride and compassion. The sacrifices they also made during this worldwide pandemic will never be forgotten.

A Candlelight Service was held on Saturday, October 2nd for the families. As in years past, they asked that landmarks, buildings, communities, and fire departments across the country participate in "Light the Night for Fallen Firefighters."

This nationwide lighting event honors those firefighters who died in the line of duty and lets the families know that we will always remember. Last year, some of the most iconic buildings and bridges, as well as hundreds of fire departments and communities participated in honoring our fallen.
