Light the Night for Fallen Firefighters in 2018

The 2018 National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend will be held October 6-7, 2018 in Emmitsburg, Maryland. For the second year, landmarks across the county will glow in respect to the fallen and their families for Light the Night for Fallen Firefighters. This nation-wide lighting is sponsored by the NFFF, as part of the weekend in which we will be honoring 103 fallen heroes.

We would like local fire departments to join in this tribute by lighting in red during the Candlelight Service on October 6th, or any time during the week of October 1st. This would be an additional symbol of support and comfort to the families being honored and whose loved one is being remembered. Go to to let us know that you will join this extraordinary display of recognition.  Also, If you know of any landmarks in your area that you think would light up, please let us know by filling out the form at

Thank you and we hope you will join us in honoring our fallen.
