International Firefighters’ Day is observed on the 4th of May each year to pay respect to volunteer and career firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty. It also provides an opportunity to acknowledge current and past firefighters for their extraordinary commitment, exceptional courage and selfless pledge to serve their community.
In honour of International Firefighters’ Day 2021 DFES will mark the occasion with a memorial service at the Firefighters’ Memorial Grove in Kings Park on Sunday 2 May. The service includes the reading of the Fallen Firefighters’ Honour Roll which commemorates Western Australian volunteer and career firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
All current and retired DFES personnel, volunteers, families and friends are invited to attend the service to remember and pay their respects.
