IAFF Fallen Firefighter Memorial in Colorado Springs on Saturday

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters from across the country and Canada will make their way into Colorado Springs on Saturday, September 16 for the International Association of Firefighters Fallen Firefighter Memorial.

The event at Memorial Park will feature hundreds paying tribute to those that have given their lives in the line of duty. Firefighters have gathered in Colorado Springs for 28 years for this event. 

Honoring first responders that made the ultimate sacrifice, about 190 names will be added to the permanent memorial. All of their families will be coming to town, escorted by representatives from the stations they served.

"It's a great responsibility but it's an absolute honor to honor the people that have truly made the ultimate sacrifice, and to take care of their families and to let them know that those members will never be forgotten," David Noblitt, President of the Colorado Springs Professional Firefighters Association of the IAFF Local 5 chapter said.

The memorial service starts at 11 a.m. in Memorial Park on Saturday, September 16th.
