VIDEO/PHOTOS: The National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service was held Sunday in Emmitsburg, Maryland, to honor 144 fallen firefighters. The event, hosted by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF), was held at 10 a.m. The 42nd National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend events honored 144 fallen firefighters; 79 firefighters who died in 2022 and 65 who died in previous years. On Saturday, a candlelight service was held at 7:30 p.m. This is the first time the memorial weekend was held in May rather than October, as it has been for decades due to the frequent uncertainties of October weather along with potential federal government shutdowns, according to the foundation.
