Firefighters Memorial Day 4th May 2022

Firefighters Memorial Day takes place each year on the 4 May.

Fire and Rescue Service personnel throughout the UK are encouraged to form a visible parade at their fire station, or other Fire and Rescue Service premises and observe the minute’s silence at midday to pay tribute to, and remember, those who have died or have been injured as a result of their duties whilst serving their communities.

The 4 May is also ‘International Firefighters Day’ and in some countries is celebrated as ‘St Florian’s Day, with the intention of commemorating the dedication, commitment, and sacrifices of Firefighters everywhere.
