What is International Firefighter Day?

May 4th is recognized as International Firefighters’ day. This is a day where we honor the sacrifices firefighters make to keep their communities safe. It’s also a day to assist the families of fallen firefighters and prevent firefighter injuries and death. Do you know a community member you could do an act of kindness for?

We all know how critical firefighters are all over the world and how much they impact our local community. So be sure to offer a friendly wave, buy their next meal, and pull over when driving to make space for them to respond to calls.
