Shine Your Light for Firefighters on May 4th NFFF Celebrates International Firefighters’ Day
April 7, 2021

On May 4, 2021, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) will be joining in the observance of International Firefighters' Day, which began on May 4, 1999, after the deaths of five Australian firefighters in a wildland fire. Since that time, International Firefighters' Day is held every May 4th to recognize the work and sacrifice of firefighters across the globe in keeping their communities safe.

The NFFF will be asking your communities for their participation in thanking firefighters for their service on May 4, 2021, by placing a red light bulb on their porches. If your department would like to light up as well, please let us know by emailing
