The Alaska Fallen Firefighter Memorial Committee, the Alaska State Firefighters Association, and the Alaska Fire Chiefs Association along with other agencies from across Alaska will gather for a ceremony on at 6 pm, Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019 at the Alaska Fallen Firefighter Memorial in Anchorage.

This ceremony is a remembrance of Alaska firefighters and emergency responders who have died in the line of duty. This year’s service will include speakers from across Alaska commemorating the service fire and emergency responders provide everyday throughout the year.

At the end of the service a special bell ceremony will “ring home” those firefighters in Alaska who were killed in the line of duty.

The Alaska Fallen Firefighter Memorial is at 5th and A Streets.
