September 30, 2018

For some, this Sunday will be reserved for remembering Connecticut’s fallen firefighters who died in the line of duty.

The Connecticut Firefighter’s Association Memorial Foundation will host its annual Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service. This is the 16th year that the organization has hosted the memorial.

It will be held at the Connecticut Fire Academy, 34 Perimeter Road in Windsor Locks. The event scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. It is open to the public and planned to go on rain or shine.

“This Sunday will be the day we remember our fallen members in the fire service here in Connecticut that have given their all,” the Connecticut Fire Police Associate said on Facebook.. “It’s a day to remember them in their last minutes and their last breath, putting their lives on the line for their family, neighbors.”

“Let’s also remember the families on this day that have lost their family members,” the agency added.
