Honoring Our Fallen Firefighters in Salem (Photo) - 09/20/17

The Oregon Fallen Fire Fighters Memorial will be held tomorrow, September 21, at the Oregon Public Safety Academy (4190 Aumsville Highway SE, Salem). The ceremony begins at 1:00 p.m. and the public is welcome.

The Fallen Fire Fighters Memorial is a tribute to the ultimate sacrifice made by fire service professional, career and volunteer, across our state. A time to honor and remember these brave men and women and to support their families.
This year's ceremony will also have a special tribute to Fire Dog Cody, a retired member of Eugene Springfield Fire and the Oregon Fire Service Honor Guard.

Please join us as we pause to remember these five members from Eugene Springfield Fire that died protecting our community.
